a new month

A new month and I am having trouble adjusting to the time change. But I am getting up earlier but going to bed later...I don't think I am getting that extra hour.

Anyway here are a few things I have been working on. Now that November is here the time will fly right into next year. It's crunch time! I have been working on some city scapes but using watercolor pencils instead of paint. I had bought some Derwent watercolor pencils then Sandy introduced her love for Derwent inktense pencils so I had to buy some of those and try them.
Now we are putting them to the test and trying them out on every surface. The above picture shows how they look on painted wood. You can go to Sandys blog and see how they look when used on fabric. You know I have to try that one.

I've been rusting some things.

...and working on some tag swaps for Christmas.

Tomorrow I will show how they came out. And I WILL be posting photos of the Santa and angel dolls. Hang with me...they are coming.
I have more medical tests to look forward to this week but won't have any results until later in the month. Will keep you posted on that.
Meanwhile, have a great week and make some art!

The colors of the city scape is great! One more thing I need to put on my wish list....where did you find them? And I love the Santa original?
