Last week I managed a few sketches and a painting in my sketch book.
I seem to have a fixation with dramatic skies, perhaps it's because our skies are very flat and grey at the moment.
The painting did start out as painting paper for a work shop I 'm going on next Saturday week.
It's a mixed media work shop and I have a huge list of things I need to take!
I have also been invited to take part in an altered book group local to me.
This, I might add is all new to me and I am hoping the work shop will help me in some of the processes you have to use.
We have nine members in the group and each has a book with which they pass on after they have decorated two pages in mixed media.
Each person has a different theme and at the end you will have nine different interpretations of your chosen subject in your book.
My chosen subject is The 1920's, I decorate the cover and first page and then it gets passed to the next person on the list.....I hope you get the idea.
At the end we meet for lunch ( looking forward to that bit) and get our books back, which will be sometime in November.... so should have time to fit it in, fingers crossed.
We hope then to have the books displayed in an exhibition.
I have been playing with ideas for my front cover by drawing my 1920's lady in thread, still lots of experimenting to do.
I will be adding some hand stitching to the front of her dress, I think, I have started with the loop for detached button hole.
Leaf tree is another tree brooch I made in the week, which I will add to my etsy shop....soon
Now I must thank Maria of http://creativebumblebee.blogspot.com/ for two awards and also Leigh http://leighshepherd.blogspot.com/ for another. Thank you so much!
