well, my foster kittens are still here :( no adoption yesterday for us. don't get me wrong i love them to bits but they need good homes they can stay in forever. the good news is that we did have alot of adoptions of other kittens. last count i heard we the rescue i work with had 110 kittens needing adoption! and more keep coming. please please please if any of you want a cat or dog do not support breeders or puppy mills - adopt a cat or dog from a rescue instead. or maybe you like kittens but can't have one - contact your local rescue and ask if they need help. we go to petsmart every wednesday morning to take care of the kitties in the cages there and it's a great way to get a kitty "fix"!
i have also been working on a new class for the Color Me Creative online class room - it is all about Mixed Media and is going to be quite fun! this is a basics class - so if you have been wondering what all the fuss is about regarding mixed media lately head on over and take my class! It will be up soon!
yesterday i was a blur of total inactivity and un-productivity :P i had a crazy hectic week. (i will tell you all about the cake making tomorrow...it did not have a happy ending.) in the afternoon i decided to bring down my watercolor pencils and a water brush to play with in front of the tv. i do not have very many - a small set of derwent inktense and a small set of albrecht-durer. these are both the very best in my opinion. i got a set of derwent student grade water color pencils years ago and was never happy with them. well you get what you pay for sometimes! i doodled for awhile, colored in some stamped images and then i decided to use them to color in a page i had doodled a couple weeks ago
i love whimsical flowers and i really like these! i drew them in ink and then added the watercolor pencil - this one uses the albrecht durer.
next I spattered them with pink azalea and sunburst luminart silks using a stencil brush and a toothpick.
i am thoroughly enjoying my pencils and waterbrush!
