Stuff

nice compostion

 Lately I've got some neat stuff thrifting..... I know the studio is really a mess.

 This box got stuffed with stamp making tools.


These slide cases will be great for storing stuff. Adeeb took one and I've put my drawing things in another.

  These presentation transparency sheets are coming in handy for making stencils.


Some vintage things! The pins I found at the thrift store the book was given to me for art work...can't wait!

Gouache On Atlas Pages


 I've been busy adding some gouache paintings to my Etsy Shop. I've done them on Atlas Pages from an old Atlas. It is great to work with this lovely color when everything outside is grey.

Teal,Turquoise and Tea Cozies




I have been making tea cozies. I had a couple of orders, one requested something with teal. I'm embarrassed to say I wasn't absolutely sure what color teal was exactly. Or I wasn't sure what I thought was teal really was teal. So when I went to the fabric store  I REALLY looked , at ever shade of blue to teal to turquoise  to green and everything in between. Now I can't seem to get it out of my mind. It is popping up in my work daily.
 Lesson: be aware of what you are focusing on?
