This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_260Here is my first take this week:

hawkins_jill_shine bright_wmI love the pieces out of the newest Diagonal Quilt Square Cover Up. So I die cut a bunch of quilts, then used the pieces. πŸ™‚ I think I stuck a lot tighter to the sketch this week!! Ha! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_shine bright_00_wmI made another card the other night. I had to use this cutie reindeer!!

hawkins_jill_cutethanks_wmBetween the happy jumping Santa, and this reindeer, this BB Jingle All the Way set earned its way into my heart. πŸ™‚ I think I’m going to add a little sparkle to that bright nose.

hawkins_jill_cutethanks_00_wmI used watercolors for these little cuties. The wood paper warms it up so sweetly. πŸ™‚

MFT Summer School: Gallon/Quart/Pint

PrintToday starts another fun week on the MFT Blog! MFT Summer School: Session TWO! Oh yes! πŸ™‚

Today’s lesson:

PrintThe ol’ Gallon/Quart/Pint trick…You use a lot of one color, a little of the next, and even less of the next. Such fun! I could do these little lessons all day. I think I always say that, but it’s true! πŸ™‚

Anywho, on with my card:

hawkins_jill_miss you_wmMy card here sort of takes the gallon to the extreme and the others to the brink, but you get the picture. I have been trying to stamp more, and kept this one simple. I tend to die cut, so I like to be sure I mix it up here and there πŸ™‚ Watercolor: The untamed medium.
