Very productive weekend in the studio! I worked on various backgrounds and have several projects underway which I will share when they are complete. I spent some time catching up on various blogs. So much inspiration! Since there were lots of fall and Halloween posts, I decided to do some fall backgrounds. Both the above are completed using the same colours. The first photo is a cereal box and the second is fabric cloth - a muslin back with layers of tissue and cheesecloth. I love the way they turned out - am still thinking about what to do with both. I will be working on my Collage Dreams on Paper workshop with Nancy this week as I'm a bit behind. Also signed up yesterday for Visual Poetry which is an online workshop offered by Susan Tuttle on digital photomanipulation. As usual, lots on the go.
My Tuesday was divided between dyeing various fabrics and trims to give an "aged" appearance and working on my online workshops. I also ended up reviewing some of the studios shown on the Quilting Arts studio tour last Saturday - well worth it if you get the time.
I thought you may enjoy a brief short story. My dh and I are Dancing With The Stars fans and make a point of watching it every week. I enjoy the dancing and admire the celebs for their participation. So, yesterday morning my hubby tells me at breakfast he had a dream - he won the show! I almost fell out of the chair I was laughing so hard - tears were streaming down my face! He hardly dances at all......
Am off to see what trouble I can get into today......
A video to leave you with for the weekend to show what I have been doing with all the doilies I've been picking up at the thrift store. Worked on a variety of samples in the studio yesterday in varying stages. Plan to work on these over the weekend. I'm a bit behind on my online workshops so will be working on these also. Hope you manage something creative this weekend! Chat Monday.....
