AEDM & NaNoWriMo Day 6

Today's creation for AEDM is:
Ornament for a friend (blog-matching ornament too lol) made with packaging board decoupaged in scrap paper to strengthen. I love the translucentness of the skin, although it hasn't photographed too well :(. To do it I painted her with water-soluble crayons and watercolour pencils then took a piece of tissue paper and allowed it to absorb most of the colour, leaving only a hint. With the hair I scratched away the paint with a needle, to show the white paper in places beneath.

The top right hand corner has a hatpin, which are really easy to make yourself with a headpin and a bead, I then added an old broken bracelet to it for a fancy dangle. Also linking to Sunday Sketches, over at Blue Chair Diary.

Day 5's final word count for NaNoWriMo was: Zero, Unfortunately! Therefore total is still: 6282. I guessed it was going to happened at some point this month but a little disappointed it was so soon. But it was a day when family matters came first and I had to play Nurse Nightingale, as my mum calls it. 

I was hoping to get some words done once I got home but then Bonfire night settled the rest of the word shortfall, just look at these demon eyes:
It's my full-sized border collie, trying to fit into a space a jack russell would have difficulty with (under my bed), leaving a wave of destruction behind him. This is after a week of him trying to fit into a computer armoire, the boiler cupboard, a shelf of scrapbooks under my desk and so on and so forth, increasingly getting worse as the bangs grew more frequent leading up to the mass of noise last night. I cleared out everything under half of the bed to give him space to stretch out, then put the tv up to it's highest in my bedroom and my ipod dock blasting on max in my studio, trying their best to drown out the bangs that were terrifying him so much. But in doing this rendered concentrating on writing absolutely impossible, the place was reverberating! So no words at all but hopefully one slightly less distressed pup than what could have been.

Now I'm off to try and catch those runaway words back up, thanks for visiting J xx

  12. Very pretty and so much creative detail.
    Poor pupster, they get so scared when they have no idea what's going on. My older Silky Terrier has been hiding under couch cushions lately, very odd!
    Thanks so much for visiting with me.

  14. Aww, what a cutie! You're such a good friend to comfort him like that. :)

    I had a dog who was terrified of thunder storms and would always try to hide in small spaces. To make him feel better, I'd put a blanket over whatever half-his-size table he was hiding under so he'd have a little tent.

    Loving the ornament and the darling little owl!

  18. Firstly, I love the ornament you created for your friend. She will love it!

    Secondly, my heart goes out to your poor doggy. I can empathise as my Cody is terrified of storms, fireworks, construction noises, pretty much ANY loud noises. He too will worm his way into the built-in wardrobes and/or 'hide out' in the smallest of spots. Poor thing shakes like a leaf and pants like crazy too...he gets very, very anxious. What a good doggy Mum you were to try and disguise the noise to help make things better for him.

    Don't worry about Nanowrimo...sometimes, life gets in the way of the best laid plans and family does come first.

    See you tomorrow ~

  19. Awwww...poor baby! Hope all of that has settled down by the time you read this. Love your ornament!
    Thanks for the visit and comment on my page...I copied the reply here...
    Thanks Jennibellie! It's a thrill to see that others like my quilt! :) We lived in Virginia, then moved to Florida for 10 years before following the kids (really the grand-daughter) to where we now are. I just couldn't stand the thought of not seeing her.

  20. Nice artwork. Thankfully our dog used to be immune to fireworks, but could hear another dog at 100 paces :s

  21. I like your piece! Her skin is really nifty. And the dog is so cute!

  22. "You're a hoot"...how cute! I enjoyed reading the description of how you did her skin and hair--I'm always curious how things are done :)

  23. Poor baby and the evil fireworks... poor mushu is beside himself at any noise so fireworks close by would be too much for him I fear... great work on the piece today and like the fringe especially.... fringe just makes anything cool I think xx
