I've joined a class called SEWN by the super creative Mary Ann Moss. She is at www.dispatchfromla.typepad.com if you want to join the class. I have loved taking her journal book building classes and cannot wait til this class starts. We have a few hints, which is all I can give you....to paint patterns, lots of patterns, then get your scissors out!!! I'll show the end result at the end of summer, but you could be painting mindless ends and ends of patterns to cut up in joining her class that starts July 5th....with a bang!! I haven't done SERIOUS ART for a while, but have delighted myself with painting mindless colors, designs and shapes in bliss .... a friend talked about how she prays when she paints .... and WELL it is so true for me too, as it is a very intimate time with Him, thinking, discussing, solving and giving over! I guess that is why I am so desperate to paint with color! I need the constant conversations with the Lord, like a garden chat with your DAD as you water the thirsty plants! I had those moments so often on my beautiful porch and in my garden in Round Top and am creating my wonderful spot here in my new smaller yard! AND in my cluttered full of stuff that delights my heart studio loft!! I think it will never be straightened .... not for long anyway!! SOOOO .... here are some of the patterns I have been slapping onto paper to be cut up when class starts ... let your heart and imagination go with what Mary Ann Moss is going to share with us to do!! Have a BLESSED WEEK ....enjoy the color!
