Here are the latest sweet critters to join my #illlickthedishYOUdry(trademark)
design collection. Available in my etsy shop and via my stockists as soon as they restock.
Here’s a Save-the-Date for a fun event in September. Per your suggestions, I found a spot to have a pop-up show of my completed pieces I made for my #100dayproject.
Sept 9th 7-9 PM
COR @220 East (220 East 4th St) in downtown Waterloo, Iowa.
In the spirit of how I approach life, I’m keeping it simple:
1. One night only.
2. Unframed pieces that will be laid out on tables to view/purchase (I will place them in clear cellophane bags with backer boards upon purchase).
3. I’ll bring my box of fun paper scraps with glue sticks and some paper for folks to create their own collages.
4. COR will provide wine & snacks (thanks COR!)
5. 20% of my pop-up sales will go to the NE IA Foodbank
6. I will try to create a “photo album” via my FB page so you can browse through the pieces before the show
7.I’ll price the pieces very affordably and kiss them good bye as they head to your great homes…! 😉
***Please note that I retain the copyrights so I can create cards from these pieces to sell via my pop-up shops, etc.
I hope to see you there!
Ah, the final day of this project. I must admit that about Day 37 I wondered if I could keep up with this project on top of my regular work load. But, like a chihuahua with a porkchop (!) I soldiered on! 😉
This scrap of paper was from an illustration I did for a corporate project in Colorado. I cut out the illustration (I used to call it my “paper doll technique”) and was left with this scrap. I placed the neon pink scrap behind it and then painted the dark blue all over the paper. And then, I waited. I waited for the piece to “speak” to me. What was this image saying? And after awhile these words flowed out of my brain and onto to the paper.

Oops! I forgot to post the last images from my 100dayproject.
