Another online class project with Carla Sonheim. This time we used junk mail to create a book. First we gesso pieces of junk mail (security envelopes, postcard, flyers) with a brayer. Then we add watercolor and tape our pieces together before arranging them into a book. We then add black marker and gesso. I think it creates really interesting textures and background.

Here's another design in my Sea Garden Collection. The guideline to design a collection are: a focal design, a secondary design, a small scale and a large scale version, a tonal, two tone or tone on tone coordinates, and a mix of geometric or organic motifs such as florals, polka dots or stripes. This is one color story but when you go into commercial production, they would run several color-ways.

Here's a preview of my work in progress from my "Water Flower" collection for the spoonflower contest. I am trying to finish this weekend. Everything is due on the 5th and voting will start on the 7th. My friend Louise came up with a good name for it: "Blooming Waters".
