Desktop Background = GIANT Post- It Note

Forget about scenes of waterfalls, birds or snowflakes! I just used the "set as desktop background" function to make myself a BIG, GIANT post it note for some long range goals! Thought it would be a good way of constantly reminding myself of some objectives I've set for myself.

All I did was to create an image of the lists, ideas, even a quote from an article written by Michael James that I've been chewing over for the last few weeks.

So each time I log on or minimize my windows -- voila, there it is.....hard to ignore. (Well we'll see!)

One correction though- I will be teaching at Art Quilt Tahoe in November of 2011 at Lake Tahoe at Zephyr Point on the South Shore, NOT Nevada City.

New Fiber Art Workshop


Yes, I've been thinking and thinking about what else I can offer to the fiber art workshop scene that is unique to my design background and will be valuable and interesting to teach!

Well here it is: "THE COMPLEX COMPOSITION" . I hope others will agree.

This workshop will focus on using basic principles of graphic composition used by many architects. You will learn to create rich and complex compositions from this inventive perspective using the principles of SCALE, MERGING, LAYERING/ OVERLAPPING, RANKING, AND FRAMING. Each student will create a cartographic art quilt that tells the story of a particular place.

Interested? Just let me know.........
