My day started well by meeting Cath for a coffee in Llandudno. We last met ten years ago on a course at Queenswood School with Rosemary Muntus. After coffee we went to an exhibition of work by Betty Mills whose work includes botanical images and designs in watercolour and also embroideries and baners. as I had to leave Cath there to save myself a parking fine I shall have to visit again.
Then a continuation of the work started at Mary’s Workshop on Tuesday all afternoon. The first 3 use watered down acrylics, but the last one uses silk dyes. I used the left over paint to continue with my journal pages.
Here are some of the pages in progress. The last page is more or less finished with the addition of fabric circles stitched for my rainforest project. The other pages use a stamp I bought from Trapsuutjiies at the Knitting and Stitching in Alexandra Palace last year and I also have some of Laura’s lovely fabric paints.
These are stamps I made myself. The first used layers of craft foam and the second are the stick on floor protectors for furniture legs which really work well.
I wonder if my colours were influenced by these pansies outside my window?
