Agave Paper Collage

Greetings….Today’s offering is a paper collage. I used the beautiful papers, Jill Kuhn designed for me, here is the post about our designed papers. My sewing machine was used to to outline the Agave and add texture to the background. These days the sewing machine is used for art purposes and an occasionally clothing repair only. Have a creative day!

Book Making

I love making art books and filling them with art. This little book was made with 3 separate sections of mixed-media paper and sewn to a stiff watercolor paper cover. I’ll be adding small watercolor paintings of California Wildflowers.

Florals

Good Morning…to get a boost for my morning warm up, I was looking through a magazine and came across a fabric design that inspired me to draw my own rendition. I used watercolor, watercolor pencil, brown tone graphic marker and the finale was posterization in Photoshop.

Oak Leaf

Out of the many hundreds of oak leaves falling in my yard, I picked this one to paint. The mottled colors would present a challenge. I spent a few hours on Sunday practicing with watercolor, watercolor pencil and Kuretake Zig watercolor brush paints. I used multiple layers of color to achieve my results. A few hours well spent. Happy Monday!
