“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!!!
