misc. bits…

 “It is the sweet simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”  ~Laura Ingalls Wilder~


Here we are in the downhill slide for the merry month of May.  Upcoming in the near future are the following:

I’m noticing that Mary Ann Moss is gearing up for another online class.  This time,  the class will be about sketching.  I have always enjoyed her classes.

Traci Bautista has a new book coming out and a new online class about printmaking.

Tammy over at Daisy Yellow is hosting the Index Card a Day project starting the first day of June.

Me, I continue to do my own little projects.  I think I will participate in ICAD again this year.  I really enjoyed it last year.  But,  I’m not buying those flimsy index cards again this year.  I have already cut out 3×5 cards out of cereal and cracker boxes.  I know the idea is to use index cards but I think my “cards” will be much sturdier.  Plus, I like recycling my cereal boxes.

A few posts back I mentioned Tina Berning’s book,   100 Girls on Cheap Paper.  Here’s a few I painted on cheap paper with a brush (mostly) using sumi ink and some watercolors:





This one is pen and watercolors:


Here are three small collages I made in the little journal I’m recycling from a junk mail booklet:




I hope you have a great rest of the week!!!

    I too enjoy MaryAnn’s classes and I look forward to taking this upcoming one!
    I am still on the fence about iCad this summer– I tend to make the cards so much more intricate and time consuming than they really need to be. I completed it last year and loved the out come but I am not into having 60 little cards hanging around so I may play with my own modified version of it this time..
    Your last 3 collages are BOSS! I love all that bold color and line work on them.

    Great collages as usual. Excellent way to recycle junk.
