EDM Challenges 21, 22 & 31

These are all separate drawings of items in a collection of family memorabilia combined into one image created in photoshop. The dress is a christening gown originally worn by my sister...and then me. The clip in the lower left is really pretty, but I haven't identified whose it was...or the story behind it yet. The postcard collection, bound by wooden panels & metal screws, was my mother's. The little snapshot mini album has a leather cover with grommets and a very fragile string holding it all together. The photos inside are from my maternal grandmother's family, as is the small, framed portrait in the upper left corner. I have boxes of postcards, photos and letters, many of which were sent by friends and relatives while they served during WWII. I submit this entry to satisfy the "clothing", "antique or vintage items" and "collection" challenges.

Well....this was a challenge all right. Though I've been doing this more lately, I still haven't reached a good comfort level yet, and it shows. Great assignment!

NY Winter

Another from the photobox. (pastel pencil)

Two More Bubbies

She's so sketchable!

Back in Time

I did this sketch from an old family photo, from an old family album. Probably early to mid-'40s and probably in New York.

Illustration Friday "Lost" (tooth)

I just could not come up with anything to submit for this week's topic, "Lost", until it literally popped out of my head...and fell into my lap (crown & post) . Of course, I took advantage and did a quick sketch before jamming it back in from whence it came. Timing is everything.

Blind Contour Friday

My husband gave this to me last Easter, so I dedicate this BCF drawing to him.

I got into a sketch rut today. Pencil & charcoal pencil and a big box of family photographs.

EDM Challenge #8

These 3 pieces were made by a friend. The left ring is my wedding band, and the right is my "engagement" ring. My husband has the same wedding band (of course), and a similar "engagement" ring. The middle piece is a silver pin with ivory inlay. The right ring is silver with a bloodstone. The wedding ring design represents a catfish, which is a symbol of good luck.
