"Skitching" - sketching with stitch. Did some experimenting with that last week. Soaked a piece of Kona muslin in water, "blopped" some various colors of gouache on here and there, let it dry and then "skitched" with black cotton thread. Love these.
Also paint-dyed some little pieces of muslin and then stamped music, french words and some nature textures with "stayz on." Not sure what is to become if these - if anything, but they sure are pretty.
Also worked a bunch in the yard this past week. Got the vegetable garden and herb garden cleaned out and put in. Now they've just got to grow!
Brina's on Spring Break this week so we are heading over to University of North Carolina School of the Arts where she will be attending for a month in the summer and taking their Visual Arts program. So excited for her.
It's a four week intensive study visual arts program and cello instruction - 3 college credits. She will be staying in the dorm during the week and then they go on all these cool trips on the weekends - white water rafting, museum visiting, all kinds of fun places.
