Quick Collage Exercise

Since I can’t do fabric stamping every spare hour I have, I enrolled for a little workshop with Terri Stegmiller.
I already had followed a workshop with Terri and I liked her ‘naïve art’ and the way she’s explaining it.
She’s making art in a way I’m not used. It seems like there is no thinking in her way of doing but the contrary is truth ! What I like with her is that she don’t let you ‘agonise’.
Make some very quick simple sketches, use basic forms, take the best of the bunch and make it in fabric using rather strong colours.
Well, I made one quick sketch and coloured it :
I didn’t think what I was doing, I let my hand draw and coloured it with the crayons I had near me.
I picked some fabrics in my stash – as you see not the same as my coloured sketch but who cares ?
I absolutely wanted to use that candy check fabric and the green and black fabric for the strong accent.
This was all done in ½ an hour. Then I stopped to takes some pictures and start to write my blog.
After a little blog writing I continued and I added some purple dots at left and lighter purple flower heads at right.
To be continued.

I'm totally loving what you are doing so far. I've always been a fan of 'curvy'.

I've just discovered your blog and like what you do, especially the Marseile Frioul one (OK I'm from Bouches du Rhône :-) but still have to go and visit the Frioul, btw)
