A sneaky peak at the painting in progress
I'm working on the still life element today.
Stage 1 - the photo. I worked out the pieces I wanted (they all mean something) and photographed them in situ.
Below: Stage 2. putting in the fabric applique shapes.
Stage 3: Stitching the shapes and adding details.
I love this sketchbook. It's a lovely soft leather and is being made to go alongside the award I got last year for gardening.
The EXTRA special thing that I love about this version is the pages. A while back I asked Linda Kemshall to print some altered book pages for me for a piece that's coming along later in the Life Story series. I was able to use some of the excess to make my sketchbook pages (you can just make out some of the printed words) So I have my sketchbook pages, really making up my sketchbook pages. How cool is that?!
