Wavecrest Woodie Fest, 2014

The Wavecrest Woodie Fest was held at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas today. These are old cars from the 40s, 50's and on up. The have wood on the sides of them and many of them were used to haul surfboards to the beach. This was the location of the San Diego Urban Sketchers Meetup and my sketching today.

Exposed Stitch

I'm loving my book arts class. Exposed stitch. Using an old encyclopedia. It's mostly filled with watercolor paper but I added some of the encyclopedia pages to add some charm.

Skull Box

This is a little box my earrings came in. I liked the color so I decorated it with a skull rubber stamp I carved and used acrylic markers for the white and brown lines. The black lines were made with a rapid-o-graph.
