NorthEast Kingdom

Welcome March!

What I've been up to in the studio ... Architecture from the NorthEast Kingdom.
In progress.
Resist and watercolors with touches of Sakura pens, shadows, metallics and gel pens.








Gel pen resist love. This is fun.

You may want to check out Kelli Perkins blog. Kelly wrote a really fine book, Stitch Alchemy. She has a really cool tutorial on Stitched and Painted Pagelets.

Some very cool stuff coming up here in the next couple of weeks. 
Thing 1: An Interview with Tracie Huskamp and a review of her book, Nature Inspired.
Thing 2: Susan Cohen's (very) Crazy Quilt squares with stitch tute from Susan
Thing 3: A Sakura Pens giveaway, which will include a tutorial!
But before my giveaway, check out Alisa Burke's Sakura giveaway here. Her videos are such fun to watch.
Weeeee! Welcome Spring.
PS: The video on the last post was not mine, but it is one of my favorites from It's A Work of Art on YouTube. Go on over there and post a comment! She's awesome.

Wow. I have never used my gel pens as resists. This is great. And these are really pretty!

Enjoyed your interview with Alison Lee!

The spring post is so cool! Just went to our arboretum here in L.A. and posted a bunch of spring-y looking pictures, and then heard from people still deep in snow... they've really had a time of it!

Love your blog. take care!
