Playing in my sketchbook, I discovered this fun little technique: doodle with a white gel pen, then color over top of the doodle with colored pencil and the pen resists the pencil. Pretty cool!

These are the stepped out photos for the tulips art quilt that I made back in the spring for my mom. Photos of the finished quilt and of the sketchbook that I worked in while making the quilt can be found here and here.

more paint and pattern play, also some lettering play. last photo is patterns painted on black cardstock. amped up for SEWN, it started today, i just finished watching the first videos and i'm headed into the studio now to start slinging some paint around, until the little one wakes from her nap.

i found this little scrapbook at the dollar store. it has foam covers and cardstock pages (i bought extras for my kids- they're fantastic for my 2 year old). although i love purple i decided to alter the covers. i played around until i finally decided to make the book a pattern inspiration book for SEWN.
with a coat of paint
with a silhouette added that i wasn't really digging
final cover after adding more paint and collage
inside- i will be painting the inside covers and back cover too and adding a pic to the first page
pages. i kept these super simple to let the patterns shine. left the pages plain bright white and stuck the pictures down with double stick tape, no extra embellishments. all of the shown patterns, including the one on the cover can be found on my pattern inspiration board on pinterest.
coming up later this week-sketchbook pages where i've started to play with patterns.
