Fancy sugar skull at Selena's

Road Trip

It rained all the way to Toronto, but that's better than snow!
Mandatory Swedish meatballs for lunch. 
Fun duvet covers.
These lamps always remind me of wads of kleenex.
I loaded the car and went back into the store for some cookies, and crackers. 
It was a good day trip.

Classwork with Joanne Sharpe

So, the lefthand page was making a background by squishing wrinkled plastic wrap into wet paint, then using the same color, paint around some shapes. She calls it pulling the negative shapes out of the background. It was not so easy, but it makes a nice backgroung to write on, I think.

The righthand page was PAINTING the letters freehand, trying to find your own personal font. Also, not easy. It's like writing in slow, slow motion. 
When Joanne does it, the script is all cute and stylish. Here's her website, go look. She's lots of fun, careful you don't get lost in there.

Here's what I'm doing today

I'm in an online class by Joanne Sharpe, so this is what I'm up to while I wait for the Trader Joe's gingerbread to bake.
