Trying to catch up on some time with this weave project....
the last one to complete my HNC course! Gulp!
What kicked it off was my blue and white quilt and simply wanting to weave with white....
then I took a group of photos on the way to work one morning,
the gorgeous winter sky and bright white clouds echoed the colours in my mind
so this was really my source point.
First stage is to work on the sketchbook so today I've been playing with collage bits
and my new 'Brusho' inks. :0)
.......remember those school days, of playing with bits of tissue paper?
....more on the abstract side, I got hold of some plain old masking tape,
.....and set to creating thumbnail colour washes.
Then I let loose the inks, keeping the theme of clouds and sky
.....using some hand made paper for texture,
....adding the ink powder to wetted paper and letting it do its
.....then masking the paper with white candle wax.
Yep, I've had a really good play-time today. :0)
See ya! x
