Class in session with assignments due

If you have been reading my blog you know I am taking an ecourse from Lilla Rogers, a top licensing agent. I am enjoying the class, learning much and I especially enjoy talking to all the other students on a closed facebook page for everyone in the class. So much talent all in one spot, seeing so many different ways to do the same assignment. That part is a little intimidating but I am enjoying it none the less. 

Last week’s assignment was to sketch mushrooms and vintage pyrex casseroles and then put them into a pattern that would be used for fabric. We also had to have two coordinating patterns. Here is what I did last week. Some of you will have seen this since I did post this image on facebook. We are supposed to move beyond what we normally do so I went with a neutral background...a very dark grey and bright poppy colors. Here it is:

This week we are exploring home decor. We were to sketch seeds, succulents and pods. We got our assignment today and we are going to use our images to design dinner plates. Since we were going to do floral stuff I decided to break away from cut paper and try ink and rubber stamps. Here are my sketches. Look I used black!

Now I have to decide how I am going to put them on plates. I have gotten some inspiration from looking at mid century modern dishware and have decided on some different designs. We are to design 2-4 plates and then pick our favorite plate to post. Check back later in the week for the finished piece.


  1. nice sketches, love your colors in the final and those mushrooms! Also love the kabob!

  2. It's so fun to hear about your assignments and to see your work, Linda.

  3. Wow! Your b&w sketches are amazing. If only I could draw:-(
