opaque and vibrant . . .

I've been watercoloring again... for fun... treating it a bit like gouache. It comes out opaque and very vibrant:)

not now now . . . but, later later . . .

Dear fabric lovers and all awesome blog readers and followers!
It appears that I've let the cat out of the bag (toomuchery fabric)... way too early:(
Looks like I'll have to wait a bit longer until 'toomuchery' show and tell, and replace my excitement with patience for the time being:)

colors revisited . . .

Combing through all that has been done in the past 12 months (in preparation for Surtex) I found a few patterns that were asking for me to change them:) ... not too much - just a little on the color side of things. Sort of a spring facelift.
Sometimes, when you work on something for hours, your color perspective gets clouded... but a few months apart brings on a new, clearer vision.

more green, please . . .

So, all I've been watercoloring lately are girls in gardens...but you'll forgive me - because it's my birthday and because I know you are looking forward to green grass and bright flowers as much as I do... right?:)

spring patterns for Family Fun magazine . . .

Instead of April showers I woke up to April snow today (melted already... but I'm whining about it anyway:)... However, in the good news department: patterns and illustrations I did for Family Fun magazine a couple of months ago are now out in the spring craft issue.

big eyes & sweet talk . . .

As I was working on a banner for surtex this print... well it just came out. It must have needed to come into existence.
