I now have my own YouTube channel! I will use this to publicise my art and my business. First up – ‘Landmarks’, a presentation about my handmade book series of that name. Enjoy!
over the weekend i started cutting and making blocks using samples of fabric from my secrets fabric collection
i ended up with something similar to the traditional patience corner patchwork block
it doesn’t look too bad at all, in my humble opinion!
i cut out 10 blocks in total, with more swatches stacked ready to cut up
the last 4 blocks i cut are in a different configuration, which might get used for a separate project
some of the designs have been ‘tweaked’ since these swatches arrived, but they still give a good representation, especially of colour
more progress in my next post …
[note – this fabric collection was inspired by my original drawings with text from my visual journal, secrets]
while visiting family for the weekend, i finished hand stitching the cover of my pocket book
i also raided a jewellery box i inherited from a relative some years ago
now to work out how to make a closure for the cover …
recently i posted a page about 3 drawings i did on rusted text paper
i used upcycled cardboard and found objects as well as some extra rusted papers, such as sheet music
i also added plant dyed wool and silk, and – of course – stitch
holes were cut into the pages and ‘screened’ with thread, as an experiment to allow the reader to glimpse other parts of the book
i was also interested to see how these holes allowed the light in, which is why i took so many photos!
