What's up!

I'm supposed to be participating in an envelope exchange with the San Antonio Calligraphy Guild. Somehow I'm very behind on doing my envelopes! These are January's. As you can see, I have to do four envelopes a month... Through May! I've got my idea for February's and hope to catch up in the next couple of weeks....

A couple of other things. In my latest journal, I added two fold out pages of black Fabriano Tiziano to play with. I really like using pastels, colored pencils, and watercolor crayons on black stuff. Of course I get to these pages and they interrupt of my flow, since I don't have the time to work on them just then... But they're so fun! And, if you've read my recent (sort of) posts, you'll know that I've mostly given up coffee. I get a cappucino (decaf, with skim milk) once, maybe twice a week these days. It's my big treat! This was done with Caran d'Ache NeoColor II crayons (water soluble).

What else? Ahh, here's a recent page. Not great art, but colorful. Again with the C d'A crayons. I truly love them!

Wendy, the envelops with the calligraphy are so beautiful and happy looking! I also love your drawings on your journal! Can you please one day write a little about how you use your NeoColor II crayons? Please, please! I have them now, but I have no idea how to properly use them. I get this lines all over when I try to paint something on my sketchbook. I'm glad you are writing on you blog again.
