Actually I've been up since 6:30 and it feels more like a late morning coffee....where did the last three+ hours go? Well....mostly I've been reorganizing my marker storage....NOT the beloved copic storage, that is still working for me, but my mixed media marker storage...those new faber-castell pitt pens, paint brushes new and old and even some resurrected ranger Adirondack markers and Sakura glaze pens that have found a new use on canvas got dusted off.
Yesterday Paulineabella and I spent the day with Paulabella and her BFF Mary.....OH it's been a while since we just got to get together like that with no agenda except to do a bit of shopping and then PLAY...Pauline coloured while Paula and I got inky on canvas. OMG...you should see what she was working on...it was AMAZING...so bright and cheery, while mine had a much darker background....and apparantly, according to Paula, I make much more of a mess than she does....however....I do clean up my stencils (and hers) while she just lets them build up with inky love. I don't know if I'm quite there yet in the process of letting totally loose.
On to the real reason why you stopped by....for the local gals, if you don't know by now I'm teaching at Pickle on May 7th from 1-3pm....a Saturday, remember...I have a day job! Now Kim told me there was amazing response and you (even I) didn't even know what I was gonna colour yet...thanks for the faith. So here is sneak peek no.1....Kissy by Mo Manning, available in rubber at Stamping Bella and locally at Pickle.
