Quilt With Us

Rather productive long weekend!

Of course forgot to take a good picture of the quilt I finished on Friday… here’s a craptacular one via phone camera.  Dare say it is indeed nice to sleep under a nice new quilt, although weird as it seems Shamus doesn’t seem to like it.  He will only sleep on the old ones.  It’s about twin sized, just right for one.  Houses were hand paper pieced… rainbow happiness backed with peace symbols on white.

Onto the drawing front, I finished Magic Mushrooms on a Walk About, not totally ZIA but with a dash.  This will be a birthday present for Jazmin once I get it framed. Created on 11X14 Paris paper using Faber Castell Pitt & Pigma Micron pens followed by Sakura Moonlight gel, Atyou Spica glitter and Staedtler Triplus for the chaotic color. There are moments of gel pens, glitter pens and assorted other gooey deals that pooped in such a way that some designs changed dramatically after adding color… but I think the point get across quite nicely. Finished June 21st 2014

Now when not making a massive some thing or other I’m working on filling a Pentalic Illustrators Sketchbook, 8X5…192 pages…my goal is to draw on every page… have an entire book filled as I have never really used up an entire tablet of anything.  Page one… Zia of no name other than page one using Faber Castell Pitt & Pigma Micron pens followed by Sakura Moonlight gel.  Still don’t fully trust the paper so I draw with a baggie or other paper between pages. Completed June 17th 2014

 

Page 2 better known as Find Perfection I messed about with the Spiral maker Jim got for me on a whim.  One turned out perfect… 2 more not so much before I gave up and tangled all over it in hopes of making it adequate enough to leave in the book. Completed June 21st 2014

 

Page 3 a.k.a. Urban Sprawl… made during yet another rainy day and television viewing sucked so I used mostly .005 Pigma Micron pens for the itty bitty detail and Atyou Spica Glitter pens for the color. June 22nd 2014

 

Page 4 otherwise known as Bitha’s Tired Eye ZIA.  I love drawing eyes, just one at a time not actually attached to a recognizable face.  This is one Tab’s green eyed moments, I will make a hazel Tab/Oliver version eventually.  I also have on the list a Jazmin Blue/grey eye, a Jim see through scary icy blue eye, a Nat/Olivia Brown eye. Perhaps one day a lovely Liz Taylor Lavender eye just because I can. This eye was mostly .005 pens for that itty bitty detail and Staedtler Triplus for the shades of eye…look away from the same shade of green oops…OY… Completed June 22nd 2014

I think Shamus like the quilts I stuff with old blankets rather than batting...the new one is a bit light and puffy rather than heavy and flat. :)
