Arty ideas

Sue had been given some art materials and she had been using them to create some art work.

I think this was with some chalk pastels and inspired by her garden.

This was some crumpled brown paper with added inks,I think.This is a lovely technique producing some leather -like paper especially if it is painted with acrylic wax and crumpled some more.It makes for a good book cover.

Viv had been doing the same ,as we saw in an earlier post though she had added some gold highlights.

Jenn had spent a very wet morning in the Central reference library with a book by Bertel Bager. He had photographed seed pods and since this is something Jenn is wanting to research she had a lovely time.

Back at home she went into her garden and collected several seed pods to work from.

She used a variety of media to experiment with ,including  drawing,print and 3-dimensional with wire,paper and threads. 

There is a lot more to come but she is having lots of fun indulging herself in some of her favourite techniques!

Carol had also been exploring 3-dimensions with her crochet techniques,they look very complicated but very textural.
