Paper, Scissors, But No Rock from The Snarky Quilter

In parallel with my fabric activities, I have been taking another Jane Davies online course called Mini Collage. Both activities call on color theory and experimentation with color adjacency, but with Jane’s class I get to mix all my own … Continue reading

I Become A Color Whisperer from The Snarky Quilter

After years of avoiding color theory practice (the practice means you have to make a color wheel) I finally broke down and signed up for Jane Davies’ downloadable class, “Unlocking The Secrets of Color.” I have to say that color … Continue reading

Working Small from The Snarky Quilter

I realize that small is a relative term, both for ice cream servings and works of art. For me, a small work of art measures less than 25 by 25 inches, which is a medium for some. A small ice … Continue reading

New Daily stitching from Notes from Studio B

2020 Weekly Leaf, week 23, Burr Oak Leaf Series
Eco/botanical print on vintage silk

Daily Collage days 25-29
I've switched it up and am using 5 inch square pieces of recycled cardboard for the base and gel medium to apply papers.

I've gone 21 days without doing a daily stitching project and I missed having it to start my studio time. The daily collages are enjoyable but I missed the stitching. Doing the collages has made me very aware of how much stuff I have tucked away to use someday, so much that it gets overwhelming. While ...

Montana Bound from The Snarky Quilter

In 2015 my husband and I took a road trip that ended up at Glacier National Park in Montana. Our trip took us through several states, and so we visited many roadside rest stops. Some stops offered free paper maps, … Continue reading

A splash of color and printing weeds from Notes from Studio B

A pack of 10 inch squares in very bright colors became a very bright donation top this week, I do have the backing so it should get quilted soon.

After pulling some weeds I selected some to print (they have to be good for something).

2020 weekly leaf, Burr oak series, week 22
A eco/botanical print on silk

Daily colleges #13-24

Starting tomorrow I'm going to switch it up some and do a different background and a little more complexity . Anyway that's the plan we will see if I can break out of my minimalist approach.

I ...

Still here and still stitching from Notes from Studio B

I've been reminded a few times lately that I have been very remiss with my blogging, it's gone from a regular weekly post to a random occasional post. Starting today I'll try to get back to regular, but I'm not promising anything.

I put together six of my weekly leaves, weeks 13-18, and I love how it looks. I had just enough of the stripe fabric in my stash, I had to use it because it went so well with the prints.

SAQA 100 days is now finished, has a backing on it and is waiting ...

Not So Scientific Experiments from The Snarky Quilter

As everyone knows, you need a good stockpile of cool bits to create collages. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it as I kluge fiber and paper together to build up my stockpile. First, I unearthed diluted Setacolor paint … Continue reading

My Paper Route from The Snarky Quilter

Quilting is inching along at a tortoise-like pace to spare the tendonitis in my arm. I allow myself about half an hour each day. To do something quickly I’ve made still more collages using fused fabric and paper and glue. … Continue reading

Free For Now from The Snarky Quilter

Since we’re all living online these days, why not take advantage of free courses. Nikon is making its photography courses free this month. While obviously geared to Nikon brand SLRs, the pointers and tips apply to any camera. “The Art … Continue reading

From A Distance from The Snarky Quilter

My husband and I are well stuck into our current isolation, and we’re glad our house is large enough to allow us to have our own spaces. Otherwise, we’d be tripping over each other. Of course one of my main … Continue reading

Viral Reading from The Snarky Quilter

It’s a good thing I had lots of reading material checked out of my local library before it shut down. I’m a compulsive reader who will read jar labels if nothing else is available. And thank heavens one of the … Continue reading

Charlotte Quilters' Guild Annual Carolina Lily Quilt Show is TODAY and TOMORROW ONLY! from Cheeky Cognoscenti

I just got back from our Charlotte Quilters' Guild's annual Carolina Lily Quilt Show.  WOW!  If my mom hadn't needed to get back home to her puppy, I'd STILL be there oohing and ahhing over all those gorgeous quilts, and spending money at vendor booths.  They have fabulous items for sale in the boutique as well.  The show will be open until 4 PM today and then again on Saturday from 9 AM to 4 PM, and I highly recommend that you try to get over there if you're at all local.  The quilt show is ...

#makearteveryday continues, even on holiday! from Creating Chaos

My sketchbook continues to occupy me each day, even when I was on holiday in Gran Canaria last month.

First a catch-up of the few days before we went.....

Rusting compound over stencil on watercolour background
Fabric collage with stitching and buttons
Wooden stamp with added pen drawing

Collage lettering on map background

At the beginning of January I thought about leaving it until February before restarting my sketchbook, mainly because of the two week holiday we had planned.  After much though I decided to go ahead and started to put together my art kit to take.  I kept it ...
