a journal: textiles, inspiration, musings

a lovely five day re-charge ; now home with fresh mind and ready to get back to the textiles!   its a beautiful sunny winter’s day, after a VERY chilly night….. I have finally finished preparing my altered book for butterflies and moths…pages stitched, cut, gessoed..always a slow but satisfying process for me: the  [very raw] beginnings of the fun colour-and-image part has now started:

I have put groups of experimental textured pieces up on the board, just to start to think about how I want to use them!

and also starting to mount some of my postcard size pieces on a canvas, and thinking of ways to start piecing the sari panels together using sari trim……..
