My sister Marianne has been visiting for the holidays. Here we are and she is wearing the scarf she dyed.
This is my scarf, the colors are really better in person. We dyed these using the technique described by my friend Sioux here. Its basically done with sharpie markers and rubbing alcohol. The scarves were silk ones from dharma trading company. It was a lot of fun to do.
Marianne has been making an art journal, filling it in with backgrounds the past couple days. I finally got some time of my own in the studio today to make this page. I started in my altered book journal by laying down watercolor crayons, added images and highlighted with charcoal before I added the year and some journaling. This was a fun little page and it was great to be working in the journal again.
