Unfinished

I can’t believe it’s been over a week since I posted. It’s been busy around here with just keeping everything alive. I water daily and early before the heat sets in. I picked the last of the blueberries the other day after harvesting almost daily since the end of May. Last week we did get…

Liquid watercolor love

Oh my! I am in love – love with liquid watercolor, that is. I am currently taking a wonderful class¬† Letter Love 101 from Joanne Sharpe where she has been teaching us lettering. (You can still sign up since the class stays open forever.) I really suck at lettering. I blame it on being left…

Image Transfer Frenzy

Last week’s Fearless Art Journaling class was all about transferring images to our journals and our paint cloth. We started with four laser printed images. To transfer, the images must be printed on either a laser printer or a copy machine. We also played with an image printed on an inkjet printer transparency. Our first…

Bitten by the felting bug

When I started writing my Telling Your Story column over a year ago for The Evansville Courier & Press about local artists and crafters, I found that I wanted to try some of the crafts I’ve never attempted. One of those was felting. I swore – I will NOT try felting. However, I found myself…
