Sketchbook Challenge January 2011

The first challenge for the Sketchbook Challenge was "Highly Prized". It was harded than it sounded. Because I'm used to sketching objects and things around me not concepts and emotions. So here's what I came up with! Enjoy!

FAMM January Challenge

Well here's my 2 entries to FAMM for Jan. Challenge. The first one in my hand dyed fabric with fabric leaves and foil candy wrappers bonded to the background. Then I machine stitched a chiffon fabric over the top and then burned holes through the chiffon.

My second offering for this month is a piece of cotton batting that I used to absorb fabric dyes and paints for another project. I thought it looked pretty good so I used a Thermofax screen I had made and screenprinted on top of the batting. I thought it turnout pretty good.


I'm Back!!!

Hello and Happy New Years Day!
Well its been awhile and I realize just how much I missed doing this blog! About a year and half ago(seems like so long ago) time became very precious to me and I had to make some decisions on just how I was going to get things done that really needed to be taken care of. So the amount of time that I spend online and on the computer was huge so I gave up blogging and other activities that were just eating up a lot of time. That being said I now feel I have some time to devote to my blog and other online projects and classes. First on the list is going to my participation with the Sketchbook Challenge.So I'll be posting here and on Flickr my sketches for the monthly challenges.
That's it for now!
