Pixeladies Update


This is a very busy time at the Pixeladies’ studio. Well not really at the studio, but on the computers. We’re in the final two weeks of teaching our Photoshop Essentials II class (we love teaching), creating videos (Deb hates listening to her voice) and a handbook (auditioning legible fonts) for our upcoming Photoshop Organizer class, planning 3 SAQA conferences (Deb) and working on SAQA board stuff (Prez Kris). We’re also working on 4 new collages for our text quilts in the Watercolor Pencils and Language of Color series. But every now and then we have to have some fun.
Kris’ fun is thinking about what she’s going to do with her bathroom that had some (ahem) water problems.

And Deb keeps taking out this piece of fabric and thinking about what she would do with it. This was a reject silk broadcloth fabric print that I put out in the sun with some rusty metal pieces and paint cans sitting on top for the winter (remember, California is in its fourth year of a drought, so there wasn’t much rain to help the rusting process), then added vinegar to some other pieces to get rust.

So what’s the common denominator here? Polka dots. Kris and I both love dots. Maybe Kris will get dots in her bathroom and Deb will make a quilt. We’ll keep you posted, but don’t hold your breath.
