I am embarking upon the busiest two weeks of our summer. Company, visits, a mini-vacation, appointments, parties, plus continuing garden harvest and trying to organize (and declutter) for the beginning of school. The Mixed Media class has less than two weeks left, so I hope to keep working in that as well. So for now, just a quick update to show a little more.
Evan revisited his bird picture that I showed before. He added watercolor and it is now very fun and colorful.
I had the idea to try stamping with fresh leaves. I realized that I really need a brayer to make this work better, but I ended up borrowing a roller from my kids' playdough supplies and that helped a lot! (Hey, ya gotta use what ya got!) I finished it with some doodling with black and green pens and a fine white paint pen.
And here is a background that I started the other day. The border is done with modeling paste and a quilting stencil which I have had around for ages and never actually used for a quilt. I like this, and don't want to cover it all up and loose what's there, but it really needs more added to it. I just have no idea right now where I want to go next. I'll show more when I figure that out (and take any suggestions you might have!).
