I'm going to have a go at the latest challenge here (Facebook posting 27th August)
It's a relaxed friendly approach to filling up an empty sketchbook till it's stuffed with goodies! It'll all take place over the next 3 months - a sort of collection of thoughts and deeds, purchases and inspirations over a given period of time. I'll have a go and see if I can complete it!!
My "journal" will be called (because I like a name to start with) The Autumn Rainbow. Of course, being me, I've made a start already - not in the book, but in making things around something that's happened in the last couple of days, and which rather appropriately ties in with the idea of autumn somewhat. Leaves.
First of all, I've made a couple of blocks for printing off at a later date, and a lino cut. These are based on leaves found on wallpaper (you may have noticed I've been doing a spot of decorating)
And, I've done a rubbing or two, and a spot of printing just to see how they might all work. Below are graphite rubbings, and underneath that are two white acrylic prints from the lino cutting. (I love the marks at the sides of the leaf on these that look a bit like bark!)
