Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday. Happy Birthday mom :)
I had a very productive bill paying kinda day. It was glorious and jam packed with action! Well, maybe not action movie action. Paying off three credit cards completely and getting new tires makes an action packed exciting day for me. I'm heading over to Portland with the kids again tomorrow. Seeing friends and taking care of some business. It will be a long day, as this one has been. I took my parents and kids out to eat for dinner while the car was getting it's tires swapped. I wasn't able to make any art until about 9pm so I decided to go for a very mini creature.
I've been wearing a pendant I made using a circle setting and I'm really enjoying it. I wanted to make one of them for you and try to keep it in the creature vein. I have found, when applying the type of acrylic glaze that I use, sparkly inks react in a wonderful way with the glaze. It is hard to explain but the sparkly moves into the glaze slightly and becomes visible from all angles and lighting; however, it does not make the image difficult to see. I wanted to highlight that interaction with this piece. I tried to make it simple but strong enough to be intriguing from a distance while worn.
Since I've got a nice little trip tomorrow, and I want to make it as relaxing and enjoyable as possible, I'm going to make tomorrow's piece as soon as midnight hits. To me that feels like the same day but technically it's not and I'd rather do that then risk churning out something poor in the last moments of the day. Hope you enjoy the piece!
So I'm pretty sure there weren't any entries for this card. Happens a lot earlier on in the month. I'll be sending this one over to Listia for your second chance auction. Here is the link to bid on it. Good luck and thanks for the support!
