American Widgeon Coot

 
I think this watercolor sketch of ducks will become planner pages.

Off on a New Tangent

 

I'm beginning to take my gelato pieces in a new direction -  making marks while they're wet and experimenting with new media.  I've used a dip pen and acrylic ink to draw here, which allows finer lines than the Stabilo pencil does.
 
 
 I've also layered pencil crayon on top of the gelato.

The Tulips are Up!

 
 
The tulips are in full bloom in Vancouver.  They're my favorite flower, so I couldn't resist another gelato piece.

Quilt Block Cards

 
 
I found some great patterns for quilt block cards on the Bow Valley Calligraphy Guild website.  Lynn Slevinsky, the contributor of the project, is a talented lettering artist who publishes some great books on easy marker lettering.
 
Even with a pattern, this took longer than I thought it would, but I love the finished result.  They're a bit fiddly but I just might try another!
