some art chatter!
This is my next page for the Round Robin journal l am invoved with...it is over 13 months. This is for the journal entitled Fairy Tales, Folk Tales etc. My image is about The frog and The Ant Fable.
This is my latest dyeing experiments...The top left image is part of an old, white cotton shirt (found in Charity Shop) l took apart and has been dyed in Tea. The left hand piece is another piece of the shirt and was dyed with yellow onion skins and the last piece is a piece of silk dyed in Cranberries.
Daffodils in jar waiting to see if they colour the water....looks promising.
An avocado skin..l am told it produces a pink colour...will just have to wait and see.
Crocuses ..will they turn the water purple from the petals or yellow from the stamens?
Found these yesterday...why l here you ask? Well...l read the other day that you can make your own alchol sprays! So ...take the felt tubes out of these pens and stick them in pure alchol..wait until you get the strength of colour you want, then decant into spay bottles. A cheap way to have good alchol ink sprays!! Will let you know how it goes.
Found this beautiful evening bag in a Charity shop for a few pounds...l was so lucky. Have not decided yet what l am going to do with it. At present it is hanging up in my studio looking beautiful and making me smile when ever l look at it.
