Here is a mosaic I created from my 11 (+1) postcards on my theme of windows. What a wonderful collection and range of takes on my topic. It has been great fun and I think it has taxed our creativity.
This is the final card I received from Joanna which I love. It is hand stitched - and I now I'm thinking of going blond!! The quote is from James Joyce.
This is the final card that I created for Penny on her theme of Angels which I found very difficult. However I kept coming back to this angel I photographed in Great Bedwyn, Wilts. She was on the wall of a stonemason's yard. The business has since closed, so hopefully she has found a good home. Not sure what to do with her, I ended up making a background of Angel quotations. I wanted to go out on a glorious note, but however 'hard' I squeezed my creativity nothing glorious would come!
Meanwhile here are a few sketchbook pages.
Sorting out some fabrics and threads I was struck with how many greens I had, which made me get out my pencils, paints etc and really have a big think about green!
Using paints and pencils I then sat in the garden and tried to reproduce the greens I was seeing without worrying too much about form.
My Creative Sketchbook course starts soon. Not sure how much I will be able to share with you yet, but no doubt there will be some.
Hope your week is going well,
