A Little of This & That

Just thought I'd start the week by popping in to say hello and to thank you for your kind and supportive comments on my last post about my fabric painted piece.
If you've been following me for a while, you will know that I can't seem to stick to one art medium for very long without wanting to play in another. :-)

Last night I picked up a piece of left over collage paper and started sketching.


Not sure where I'm going with this yet, but had fun using my watercolor pencils over the graphite.


With the coolness in the air that we are finally experiencing I am starting to get into the crochet and fiber mood.  


I'm still working on my little hemp crocheted flowers so I don't forget how to make them.


I'm trying out different yarns and loved the colors in this yarn.
(note to self...next learn how to crochet a throw with these colors!) 


For now, the little flowers are keeping me busy and can work as embellishments for little gifts.


Hope your week is off to a great start!

(for those of you that use Facebook, I've created a Patina Moon page and I would be thrilled if you wanted to drop by there too and say hello!  Patina Moon Facebook Page)

Nice sketch! Your little flowers are very cute, and you're right, they make great embellishments. A throw has always seemed like a huge project to me; even a baby blanket seems big!

Hi Becca!
Thanks for your sweet commenting on my Anniversary post yesterday. You are so sweet.

This is a lovely post you have here. Your sketch is really really good. Love the eyes.

I crochet too...and funny, cooler weather makes me break out the yarn as well. I just picked out a pattern three days ago and got some yarn at Hobby Lobby. Your little flowers are soooooo pretty. My afghan will have flowers too.

I was amazed when you said you are fairly new at art...your art looks like you have been doing it a long time and so does your blog...so well done and with so many comments...wow : )

Have a beautiful day there in Las Vegas. Until next time!

Your work is just getting better and better...you are going to need an agent pretty soon!...or at least an outlet to market..

Isn't it funny that when the weather gets cooler, we tend to move into textiles! I think it may be instinctive, in order to keep warm! Love these little flowers!

Becca, I think it is wonderful that you work with many different art forms, and I also think that everything you do is really quite beautiful!

Katie said...

Cute! I know what you mean about not being able to stick to one thing! Also, the fabric painting in the last post is ahhhhh-mazing!!

Pamela said...

Lovely Becca! You are super talented!!
I am now on Pinterest and am loving it. I just pin pin pin! I find it less stressful than blogging. I saw this cool rug made out of rope that looks just like these flowers you made!

You are my kind of girl--just playing around with everything--isn't it fun??
I'm looking forward to doing this--I'll have a little bit of extra time next month. (love your painted fabric BTW)

Beautiful sketch, Becca! As you know I can't concentrate on one thing either. More fun that way, isn't it?
