My friend Shari (see Happy Chickadee) and I were discussing fabric the other day and my “made-up” advice was that if you coordinate a bunch of fabrics that don’t match, sometimes it works, because it looks intentional.
…if that is a word. Not a lot of blog posts this week because I am focused on painting at a client’s house. So today’s post is a photo of what I worked on today. This corner is only about 20% of the mural….so stayed tuned for the rest in a few days.
I’m working on a fairy forest mural for a client family right now that includes a very large butterfly chalkboard. It is going to be an awesome mural on five walls for the girls’ room so stay tuned for photos!
Our Lady of Guadalupe: I started sketching this picture out and didn’t like the direction it was going. I used some gel medium to make it glossy and it ended up smearing my initial drawing. So over a few weeks I just kept going back to it when I was on a plane or stuck in a motel room and just didn’t feel like writing. It was drawn in dots, hatch marks, lines and squiggles using color sharpie markers.
I love sewing on cardstock because of the sound the needle makes when punching through the paper! Weird, I know. Working on a bunch of cards for Mother’s Day today…. I’ve got a lot of mothers, and grandmothers, and godmothers to cover in our family (if any of my family is reading this….come back after Mother’s Day!)
