I’m working up a new Curious.com lesson and I thought I knew exactly where I was headed but the gel print plate disagreed! I did end up getting a mono print on paper that I’ll use somewhere but it’s useless for the lesson. Maybe I’ll do some MeAnndering in the white areas or some stamping… Continue reading Always learning…
I was thinking about making some winter cards so I was playing, with sun-printing (again) using leatherleaf ferns and Setasilk and then painting with Neo Color wax pastels. The first three are from the same large piece, I’m floating a card stock “window” over it to find an area I like. I’m not sure where… Continue reading Fabric Play
I’m not a scrapbooker… But in my studio I have a this tray which holds bits and pieces from people and places; little reminders of trips we’ve (mostly they have) taken or simply items of a shared love or interest. The can and do inspire my art. I love lines… An oolite (I do believe)… Continue reading Treasure Tray
I have been a follower of a wonderful blog, I have mentioned in the past, And Then We Set It On Fire… Today it was announced that the contributors will no longer be posting new posts. I’m sad but totally understand. I will miss the inspiration and great techniques that have been shared by the… Continue reading Bloggers Moving On
I think all the rain has really caused Spring to SPRING around here. I’m finding all kinds of things to photograph on my walks… nature that has or will spark a work of art. Early yesterday I fished a tiny pale aqua colored bird’s egg shell out of our waterfall and set it on a… Continue reading Nature and Art
Last post I was writing about lizards copulating in the garden. Today as Kona and I were hanging out on the deck she became very alert at some noise coming from the side yard ivy. I heard it but couldn’t figure it out until I spotted it running past the shed… An iguana, at least… Continue reading Now That Was Surprising!
The Mister and I recently took a road trip to visit family in Reno, Nevada. We have driven through heavy falling snow a couple times in the past; this was much more enjoyable. We were traveling after a storm, the hwy had been mostly plowed and was only a little icy. There was very little… Continue reading Snow and Art Quilts
My daughter, Zoey, was kind enough to draw a cat head pattern for me so that I could MeAnnder (aka doodle) on paper. She works digitally and makes it look so easy! Up under the Patterns and Supply List tab I’ve added the cat head pattern uncolored; for those of you who like to doodle… Continue reading MeAnndering Cat Head
I really enjoy the blog …And Then We Set It On Fire… The contributors are individual fiber artists who work in and explore a multitude of surface design techniques and more; sometimes working together. I once had the pleasure of being a guest artist on FIRE! One of their recent blog posts did more than… Continue reading Fabric and Gunpowder!
As I’ve said before, I thought it would be a good idea to leash train our cat and so I seem to be spending more time out on the kitchen deck. It’s going to be a sad day when she realizes we have winter. When I’m not working on hand embroidery and other hand sewing… Continue reading Wasting Time?
