One important thing I am learning from Alisa Burkes class is to always look for shapes, texture and design elements...they are all around us. So yesterday, (78 degrees) we went to The Grove in Hollywood...We stopped in at a Thrift shop and I took my camera...looking for color, texture, design...I made a collage of my photographs, then when I got home I drew a quick sketch of all the items, added a little watercolor...It was a great exercise

How much would you pay for a sweet little cabinet?? Stacey fell in love. This little cabinet came apart so it fit in her little car. There was no back on it so she got it for a great price.
I cant wait to see what she does with it, I see black, turquoise, white (thats what she does with everything.lol) You've got to love "RETRO"
28 tags, watercolored nest with eggs, touch of vintage lace, dyed crinkled rayon ribbon.
I've been reading blogs about "giving" So I contacted Karla Nathan about giving her these tags for her upcoming "Bird Song" workshop, to put in her little goodie bags.

I coated one tag with Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground, the one on the right, the one in the middle was Golden. The one on the left...turned out the best, no ground.lol
I liked Daniel Smith the best of the two. You cant go over it with a Micron, it ruins it. I used a permaball pen, it was to thick, but this was just a test...

We were to use "something" found for a texture stencil. I found this on the ground a couple of months ago. I have no idea what it is, but it worked great
I can't wait to see what we do with it next week. I used my new paper pad!!

This little tiny page took me much of the day...snipits of time.
I let it dry naturally
I have a hard time with abstract. I've been stalking (in a good way)
I also didn't want to use my "normal" supplies
Heres my list:
Yep, all those on one little page 3 1/2 x 4 1/2
