I-F: Stitch


acrylic on paper with some collage, ink, coloured pencil, photoshopping

I've been sick the last few days. (poor me) sometimes colds seem worse in the summer. This one seems to be dissipating quickly though so hopefully it keeps going that way.

I slept pretty much all day yesterday, under a quilt which my friend made for me as a wedding present. Isn't it beautiful? I think it was the most amazing present we got. It's obviously my inspiration for this week's IF.


And I just wanted to thank everyone who commented on my last post, and helped me with my colour crisis - BRIGHT definitely took the cake!

Since then I got a book on colour theory which I have been reading in my sickie-half-awakeness, and I think i am soaking it in by osmosis (ie. falling asleep on top of the book!)

all the best for a creative week everyone xx

Beautiful ilo! I started making something similar, but I did´t like the result.
I think is the first time I visit your blog. You have beautiful works (I like specially the ilo for the topic "Soar")

You know it's your use of colour that always grabs me right away when I see your work. I love that this has a personal theme too.

I hope you are feeling better - I would love to catch up with you before you go on your trip so will be in touch soon!

Very nice! But I must admit, at first glance, especially on the smaller version, I thought it was a brown haired woman who was bleeding from her forehead!

Your stuff always looks stunning, I like the bright colors, but your "soar" looks good in both color stories..The bright is my fave though! This quilt is just amazing!

Looks like you should be curled up in the beautiful quilt so you can take care of that cold :-) Very sweet illo, Kim!
Thanks for stopping by with such kind words.
