So Many Pickles…

Monday, January 21st, 2013

I made a mini art work for my baby nephew.  His name is Dylan and my family has started calling him Dilly or Dill Pickle so I wanted to make something dill pickle themed for his room.



I used a 6×8″ piece of Etchu Hagaki for the background and cut and pasted Moriki Kozo shaped pickles in Lime.  I used a variety of papers to make the pickle outfits, including Moriki Kozo, Metal Momi, Nepalese (available in-store) and solid colour and shimmer card stocks (available in-store).

I used the Micron Pens (available in-store) in black to draw the jar, lid, and some of the details on the pickles.  I also used watercolours to paint a light brine in the jar.

The Kid’s Collage Challenge was an enormous success for the 3rd year running!  We gave kids from the Queen West area bits and pieces of our Nepalese, Japanese and other decorative papers and asked them to give us back something spectacular.  They rose to the occasion and the result is inspiring!

Thank you to everyone that participated. Check them out until the end of April.
