Because it has been a while, there is just too much catching up to do. So, where to start and what to blog about today?
Maybe the studio journal happenings. Right. Shirley and I have had a few sessions together and got a bit done on our studio journals in between her hospital visits.
In the first lesson we were asked “why” and I made this my front page. Used watercolour pencils here.
Draw as I stitch.
Colour my day.
On the right, a photocopy of a shell painted in watercolours and chopped up and on the left, designs from the shell exercise. I am very proud of the sashiko design I worked inspired from the shell exercise. That is what the studio journal as a workhorse is meant to be all about – helping us to design our own work. I chose some thread colours from the watercolours to perhaps do some of the other designs here.
I love this prism design I made up from the picture out of a mag on the right. Think I will work it as a flower.
This studio journal workshop has been a lot of fun. The final lesson was sent last Tuesday, but I haven’t dipped my toes in the water on that one yet.
More to come…………..
