Fat Fairy Progress

Today was Jan-day.  Mark headed out before sunrise to go on a caving trip, so I had the day to myself.  I from a favorite art ed book....napped.... did lesson planning... finished watching something on Netflix.... worked on my art ed blogs... and did some paper cutting.

This was the design that I started on my iPad.  I had wanted to finish the iPad drawing and then print it on the silhouette paper.  The only problem was that I lost my stylus yesterday.  Oh yeah.  I spent at least an hour today looking for my stylus before giving up and ordering another one.  Since I didn't have the stylus and didn't want to draw with my fat finger, I just jumped to working on paper. 

I might submit this to the art teacher art show this year, but I already know it is too crafty or too much of an illustration to be included.  It just doesn't fit.  Still, I'd like to submit it.

Jan-day is almost over.  I figure I might be able to hang in there another half hour before I fall asleep.  I really could use a few more days just like today.

I'd like to know more about the art teacher art show. Where? When? How do we view? Loving this cutting!

oh the idea of an Alex-day would be lovely...

sounds fabulous ...

loving the new snip, and it annoys me when something creative and wonderful is classified as craft ... if it has transferred from your creative heart and mind onto a medium and grows into something visually pleasing surely it is art?

good luck and I hope its accepted

I love the idea of an art teacher show....maybe an online one where every art teacher who wants to submit something gets in!!! What do you think??

PS. I love your work, and I love that we don't have to have lines between art and craft if we don't want to! :D
