Sleepy Sundays: Hazy Memories

Hazy Memories ©️2019 Snapping Turtle Arts | cardcastlesinthesky.com

Some summers remind me of summer’s past & the little memories tucked within them.

Out where I live, if you’re closeby some water or a storm is on its way, sometimes you see this hazy mist in the sky–almost like a fog, but much thinner.

This is the first landscape design I’ve done in a while based off of just that. This one is going to be exclusively wall art & not used for other projects.

We’ve spent a good portion of this year cleaning up from the last. Now it’s time to finally have some fun. Much more to come in the coming weeks, folks. Strap in & get ready. 😁

& Most importantly, have a relaxing rest of your Sunday.

Sleepy Sundays: Northern Lights

Sometimes I make backgrounds for websites and actual tiles and handbags, quilts and things like that when my designs are printed out in various formats. It’s one of the ways I am able to make somewhat of a living off of my art. This tile has a transparent background so I can play with the foreground and make it into day or night variations and add things like stars, etc.

Hope you all had a relaxing weekend!

We are very busy in the clouds!

Tonight’s nightmarish addition is going to be part of my horror design collection for this year. The look was inspired by a nightmare had about being trapped under ice.

Quite the chilling recent memory.

Sleepy Sundays: Dense

There is so much to tell you it definitely won’t all fit within the limitations of the “short but sweet” design of a SleepySundays post. Such rambling is better suited for a Daydreams Diary—so we plan on squeezing one of those in sometime soon.

While I juggle my folders with life, we’re busy planning for the upcoming 31Nightmares in October. I had to make a few business-related calls this weekend and while pulling some strings with friends, our October event somehow came up. One of my friends was exchanging some ideas with me and I stepped outside to notice a dense fog while we chatted. The subject of the paranormal came up and I’ve got to admit I got a little chill (a good chill) even though it was very hot & humid outside. All of that inspired this wall art design. Someone has already requested it for their living room. My resources are dwindling due to a few recent setbacks, but are slowly on the mend so I’m going to do my best to make that happen.

When was the last time you got caught in a dense fog? (Literal or figurative)

Have a creepy Sunday! 😀

Sleepy Sundays: Force

There are a few new sets of florals I’ve got set up that will be shown here throughout the upcoming spring season. Road blocks have certainly been built up in my way since the start of this year. Last week was no different. Massive power outages in my region restricted internet access for a short while. Some electricity came back on, but then our connections became unstable. The result was a short closing of the site & its services.

Maybe it was the florals I’m working on, or the power outages that got me thinking about all things nature. Though I’d like to think it is the strong women that remain ever-so-present in my life through trial & triumph—sickness and superpowers.

This one is for all of the goddesses in my life that keep manifesting otherwordly beauty despite whatever negativity tries to blanket you and smother your blinding light.

Have a forceful Sunday!
