New Stencils….

…from The Crafter’s Workshop….

well, they’re not all new…top row: Mums, Aborigine, Summer; bottom row: Wonky Circles (Julie Fei-Fan Balzer), Birds, Antiquities. Now I just need to get them loaded into my Etsy shop. I LOVE the Crafter’s Workshop stencils.

What I’ve Been Doing…

Last week, inspired to play…I got out some watercolor ATC cards and began to re-create some of my doodles from the past year with ink and then to color them with gouache watercolors.  I had sketches of apples falling into a bucket or a basket, bird families on an outing and even some on a “picnic”.  My mood and aim is playful, whimsical, something I don’t usually engage in in my fiber work.  I think I will reserve that for my watercolor sketches.

Bag Making Fool

Yesterday I worked on fabric for my small ArtFul cloth bags.  They are the size of a small make-up bag but can be used for other things too.  My inventory is getting low. (That’s a good thing!  It means I’m selling.) So it’s time to get back to work on them again.

First I pull out pieces of cloth from my ever-swelling stack.  For some reason, I always go for the paint rags.  As I’m pulling out pieces I pray that I start getting ideas for other designs to layer on them, but nothing was coming Wednesday night.  Bleh.  When I woke up yesterday morning, however, ideas were coming, so it was time to get to work!

Remember the bird stamps I was making a couple of weeks ago?  Well, the birds are finding their way onto these bags.

I think I’m going to have to keep one for myself.
