Playing with Patterns for SEWN Class

I spent the weekend painting papers for the online SEWN class. I had lots of strips of watercolor paper leftover from book making, so that's what I used. In the first photo below, the lattice design on the bottom is a stencil sprayed with Dylusions and Adirondack colors.


Vellum that my friend Jann brought that I painted with Twinkling H2Os. The vellum paper curls as soon as it gets wet!
I had pinned a lot of scallop patterns so I painted one for myself. It was time consuming - not fast and spontaneous! The strip above the scallops is from cleaning my brush between colors. I like the contrast of the two styles.
Here's fast and loose!
This one was painted fast with India Ink and Twinkling H2Os. I slowly added the dots afterwards.
In the next photo there's a stencil on the top, another strip I created as I cleaned off the brush, and the bottom strip is a stamp I carved.
My favorite strip from painting on Saturday. The grey is acrylic ink that I am loving. The bright pink center diamond is Daniel Smith watercolor 'Opera'. 
I pinned a lot of herringbone patterns. The lattice on the top is from Stencil Girl's Stencil of the Month club.
