Love fairies though most of the ones in my books do not have wings. I do have a group of winged fae and ones that shift into wolves too.
We have a wild day scheduled today, grocery shopping, shipping books, looking for birthday shorts sets and then back home again to do arts and crafts, workbooks and reading. But first, we’re having cinnamon rolls, walking to the mailbox and around the block.
Goblin, Archer and Wolf created with Daz3D and the background is from Daily Textures, other elements from NLD Designs (Oscraps), Spooky Ghost Font for Happy Halloween.
Trick-or-Treating tonight. I think it’s going to be chilly. We carved pumpkins, I painted mine, I’ll have to show them off tomorrow. I haven’t downloaded the pictures yet. Slow start to my day trying to create this picture!
Another Monday. Little one will be here momentarily and we finished her brother’s scarecrow, so we’re working on hers today. I also managed to make my 2,000 words yesterday on Angel Fae and made the angel wolf from fractals, both for the background and the wings. So much fun!
I weeded a ton yesterday and am getting just about caught up! I love this time of year because the flowers are blooming again, we have some cooler weather to work in, and we with the slight cool down in the mornings at night, it’s helping to slow down grass and weed growth. Yay!
A culinary artist I am not, but I thought my little dragon didn’t turn out too badly.
So we might make more squiggly graham cracker creations for dessert. Not sure. But we’re going to have a great day!
Barely got my word count yesterday on Angle Fae. I had a ton of stuff to do. I’ve still been painting the scarecrow’s face and I just messed it up so badly this morning when I went to add some tea staining around the eyes and ended up getting the freshly painted new black on one eye dragged where it shouldn’t have been. ugh. I told you. It could look great until I messed with the face, and it was looking pretty good–until then. *sigh*
Okay, I’m off to try and get more writing done. I’ll be doing some yard work too. It’s 60 this morning, yay!
Decided to have some fun with Halloween picture creations before Halloween is over since I write paranormal and I don’t want the chance to slip away! It doesn’t mean I won’t make them afterwards either. Halloween is any time of year!
I sent my wolves out this morning at five to chase off the rats, but the rats haven’t returned. I guess that will work for a little while, anyway! But I’m sure they’ll be back–like Arnold would say.
I usually listen to another youtube music video if I need some music. I’m writing about the fae, Angel Fae, this time, and I saw this picture when I was trying to help a fellow Photoshop user with how to create clipping masks and sent her some tutorial links. But this caught my eye and I and wanted to see what the music sounded like. Perfect so far! Dramatic, otherworldly. So I’m editing before I begin typing notes I wrote last night. It’s so much more fun when I can listen to music that makes me feel as though I’m in their world….
Okay, I’m off to work. Halfway done on Angel Fae.
It’s been hot in the mornings even, but once it’s light out, I’ll try and get some more weeding done. Have a super fun day and let the music carry you away!
Today, I’m finishing up proofing Darkland Elf and making the new cover for it.
I’m late posting a blog–think my granddaughter is going through a growth spurt. I have to keep making her more to eat. lol My dogs think that means they get to eat too. Both are waiting for her underneath the table to catch scraps.
In one of my stories, I have fae wolf shifters. Some of them help to guard the dragon fae shifters gold.I created this from DAZ3D.
Turned in White Wolf Moon. Need to begin typing up notes I wrote for Christmas Wolf Surprise. Hopefully, I’ll get back to my 2,000 words per day goal. I have a ton of things to do today though. It’s going to be hectic, then dinner with the kids and their friend.
Shooting pains in my wrist in the middle of the night. I envisioned all kinds of bad scenarios since the doctor said the bone can shift.
Have a super fun day! I’ve been running this morning to get things done, but want to finally settle down and write.
I took the picture of the clouds and alpha wolves. Then added a new backdrop, which is under the clouds in part.
Yesterday was a hectic, but fun day and I managed to lose 2.2 lbs. Now that’s more like it! So I walked and am going swimming in a few, did a little weeding and I’m going to get back to the book. I managed to get 1,000 words yesterday. I tell myself I can’t get out to walk–too hot, or take the time to swim, because I’ll lose so much time writing. Ha! I waste so much time not writing, doing other stuff, and I need the exercise.
Less hectic today, but still need to pick up my granddaughter at preschool this afternoon.
I worked on this wolf, a beta, a picture I took at a wolf reserve in Texas. And then I added one of my own cloud pictures, grass, water. I love water and I enjoy adding it to a composite. I did give the wolf a reflection, but then the water didn’t look realistic enough, so I added a different water on top and it was more rippled, so the reflection of her legs was more hidden. Ripples in water would distort a reflection anyway. I’ve been working on another wolf photo I took, but it’s still not done. And added more of my clouds–Texas has some spectacular cloud formations.
I’m going to try and get more done on You Had Me at Cougar today, but most of the day will be crazy busy. I was going to walk last night, but the heat index was 98. This morning it is 77 degrees, much better. So after I feed the dogs, I’m off to get my walk in! I did manage 1,000 words yesterday, but was doing a lot of cutting and adding so it meant I only managed 1,000 instead of more. I did write a new scene last night and need to type it up, but I’m afraid I’ll be cutting some of the old stuff too.
Okay, I’ve got to get going before little one is here. Because after that, it’s hectic. Well, more so than usual.
I used Mindy’s watercolor brushes and course from Magnolia Textures to create these. They were fun and easy and just something new to do with Photoshop! I am still experimenting, so having fun with it when I have time. Since I couldn’t think last night about Billionaire, I worked on these pictures instead.
I took the picture of the great white heron on the walk with little one. Thankfully, she’s been very good about not scaring away the birds I’m trying to photograph. When I used to take the dogs for a walk, they would lie down while I took pictures of things. I quit taking them because they were such a nuisance with other dogs. They love little dogs and would bark to greet them. They bark at big dogs too. I would like to take them to the dog park again. Now that I’m vaccinated, I hadn’t thought of it, I can do that again!
The other picture is of an alpha male wolf at the Wildlife Center in Omaha. The one is with the original background, and the other is after I had already changed the background using a texture. I so want to go to the reserve again! The last few years I’ve gone, it has been closed due to first snowfall, even in October.
Anyway, I’m going to try and get something done this morning on Billionaire before I have to go with my daughter to the pediatrician. I just still need to figure out how to end the story!
Sometimes it’s really clear to me by the end. This time, it isn’t. I’m sure that has something to do with having so many distractions in my life right now!
It’s so nice out this morning, but the temperature’s going to heat up again!
