Yep, I have said it many times, I just love taking classes and online classes are no exception. I have just started one called The She Art Workshop and talk about interesting and fun techniques. I am just watching the videos right now, but hope to get my fingers into paper and paint real soon. Christy Tomlinson's enthusiasm for her art and each piece as she is creating is definitely motivating. I love how she builds layer after layer of interest and texture with fun applications. Check out Christy's blog and preview a couple of her videos and I think you will be hooked too! There is also a link button to the right regarding her class. If you are in to journaling, Christy has a class for that as well.
Here is a quick snap of the tree I am working on in my BOM (Block of the Month) CQ for March. The trunk and branches were beaded with kind of a bead soup of various beads and bugles. Spaces have been left for silk ribbon flowers to be added. I believe it will be a dogwood tree. Crazy Quilt and SRE are a bit hard to blog about on a regular basis as they do take a bit of time to complete so I thought I would just show you my progress and, of course, the finished tree, hopefully in the very near future.
