Trixxie's Trolley Trek

"Trixxies's Trolley Trek" started at the Santee Trolley Station. The San Diego Urban Sketchers hopped on the trolley for a short ride to the next stop where we got off, sketched for 15 minutes then jumped back on the trolley to the next station. We sketched at 4 different stops before returning to Santee. All of the sketches were done quickly, after the 2nd stop i realized I left my bag on the trolley, while it was on the way to downtown San Diego, I continued to sketch but with pen only. Thanks to a trolley flagger who radio'd the trolley I was lucky get my bag back with all my valuables still in it.

Envelope Book and stamps

This is my completed humming bird stamp. I used the remnants to carve some flowers and leaves to decorate the paper bag books.

The books were made from instructions in Alisa Golden's, Making Handmade Books.

In progress. This hummingbird is carved into a speed ball speedy cut. It is 4.5 x 4.5 inches. I stopped because I wasn't sure if I want to have the humming bird alone or with flowers. I decided to do the flowers separate.
