Midweek Post

 Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well. Last week I decided to join in the Life Book Taster Course from Tamara Laporte. There are 2 or 3 lessons each day,  I don't know if I will manage them all, but I'm giving it a good try. This is one of the pieces made today from a tutorial, 'bright wings' by Eulalia Mehija:

It started off by making an A3 collage, which was cut into 6" squares when finished and dried:

These were the 2 squares I decided to use, the others will be used another time:

The dragonfly shape is traced onto the squares, 'isolated' with white gesso, and then decorated:

I mounted my squares onto 7" black squares and placed them in the journal made for this event. It will also be my last entry for Jo's texture challenge at AJJ

Most of the things we are making there are different to what I usually make, but perhaps that's good, and it's a good way to keep occupied in this rather scary Covid time. I will be showing more in the course of the next couple of weeks.

It rained! My wellies had a trip out:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Lots of leaves have already fallen, it was too dry:
