it's been like Piccadilly Circus here this week
with work starting on a new bathroom, holes being drilled through walls
dust everywhere ... and family staying
so little time that I have only one double page spread to share this week
these are waxed collages that I made a few weeks ago
stitched to white vintage cotton linen and stuck to my book
I chose these ones because they have circles or parts of circles
including the tea cake wrappers I like to use
the prompt being to ... fill this page with circles
so I cut circles and round shapes and then printed more circles on top
using a stencil and printing with a blister pack ...
after printing with the blister pack ...
I was left with these adorable coloured bubble bits
so I cut round some of them and glued them on top of my page
you can see them in relief on my page ...
I'm not sure this page is completely finished yet ...
there are some areas I may gesso over and work on some more ...
I guess I'm being far too fussy ... but that's the beauty of art
knowing when to stop is a very personal thing
talking of which ...
I wasn't completely happy with the scribbled page from last week either
so I've started to doodle London words within the scribble bubbles
still in progress ...
apart from this page unfinished and the circles page still to work into
I must also mention that I skipped a double spread deliberately
because it's a prompt that I would like to do when I go to London next
yes ... London is booked for some time in March and I can't wait to go!
and I will sit on the top of a London bus and draw lines while it's moving
and other things (theatre and restaurant) are already booked to look forward to
so ... will share more next week and now it's time to visit the pages
of my wrecking friends and other friends taking part in non journal activities
thank you for visiting today
