Sketch journal

Using a sketch journal is addictive.
The more you do ;
The more ideas you get;
The more you try out,
The quicker your journals fills and
then again more ideas.
This is a real brain- and creativity-training.
Almost the Olympics.
This day(Friday) was so strange with a lot of rain and 5 minutes later the sun was shining like she never shined.
So my collage colour of the day was yellow because it didn’t rain any more in the early evening.

Making those colour collage make me aware that the most used colour in magazines is green. It’s the same in nature : green, brown and bleu.

Another fun exercise is “découpage” :

folding paper and cutting some random pieces and when unfold you have ‘snowflakes’.
It’s a bit like origami.

Cutting in a special way you obtain positive and negative spaces

The design above should be fun to make in fabric with a repetition of the design.

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new”.
Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

write you soon

Enjoying your play time and reminds me to do some along the way also...right now I'm sewing up clothes for my 10 year old granddaughter so she has something new to start the school year in mid-August..plus my studio is HOT..attached to my house but it doesn't have airconditioning and it's been 103+ degrees and very smokey here in california because of all the wildfires in and around our location..set up a small space inside the house for the sewing machine and iron and I'm on my third outfit..a diversion from my usually sewing and creativity but it's OK to take a vacation from it all.
