Suzi,

Love you work. Question: What pencils are you using? I noticed that in this journal entry and once before whe you did your "self-portriat" you used a pencil that covered dark backrounds and showed nicely (I believe you used it on the hair, a bright turquoise). I have prisma and some cheapy ones crayola. P.S. Glad you are feeling better.

Iris said...

You're so silly, it's adorable and awesome!!

I love how you let lots of different and diverse things/people inspire you.

I was fretting about not having done a page yet for your letter/stamp assignment but then I was like.. wait.. my latest two pages both use rubber stamps so voila problem solved! Will take pictures and send them soon.

You make me so excited about my art and art in general!

Debra,
I use Beryl prisma colors. but also Crayola used to make Gel Pencils which were colored pencils made to go over and black paper and they do not sell them in the stores anymore. I have not looked online but I should. I LOVE THEM. they also made gel crayons that I cant find either. They covered very well.

Is that Pia with pancakes on her head:!?!!!???? Toooooo funny:-)

Mola's are made in reverse applique. IOW, instead of slapping shapes on top of fabric and more shapes on top of that, the whole thing is planned and done UNDERNEATH the fabric which is then cut away. It adds complexity and mystery to their work!!

Oh, I hope that makes some sense.......

I loved this video, the colours, well I would never think of using such bold colours, I have been so pastel lately (does that make sense to you?) The materials list was very welcome

Suzi and Debra!!
I can't find those pencils anywhere! Suzi, are they so soft as they appear?
I am looking for pencils, that work with canvas/acrylics, that are soft, opaque and thick..
Help please!!
