I have been posting so much with no visuals ready so I am thought I need to fix that.
I attended our church fund raising auction last Friday and came home with this watercolor painting done by my minister. She said it was painted from a scene from Pike's Peak Market in Seattle. I only paid 20.00 so it was quite a deal.
Here is the shawl I started this week. Its is not a very good picture.
So here are the yarns that I am using
These are 2 pages I did of mementos from Phoenix and Sedona. That purple blob is the wrapper from some fantastic chocolate that Nicci brought. I never knew that wine and dark chocolate were such a good combination.
After watching Lisa O drawing in Sedona I thought I would try my hand at a dread lock girl. She was fun and I kept wanting to draw them even more. I hope she doesn't mind. I will probably add some writing or something else to this page not sure yet what. I used those tapes I got previously and miscellaneous paper layered over soft pastels. I love how when you blend them you get all sorts of different colors.
One thing that happened in Sedona is I got to watch some of my favorite people create art and in the process learned a lot about the supplies I already own. I never really used my Twinkling H2O's much but now I do after watching Nicci, Violette and Lisa using them. I also never thought to take a paint brush to oil pastels or watercolor crayons. I used them all mainly as backgrounds using them as is. Now that I can use a small paintbrush with them they are so much more usable for all sorts of things. I also just realized that set of markers I got awhile ago are water soluble, hmmm another way to use them. Its like getting a whole new set of tools. Thanks girls
