Worked in my sketchbook yesterday and this evening.
I made a defence shield page using medieval clip-art : I first had ripped an old pocketbook apart, glued some ripped pages ; painted a little gesso over the page so that I still could read the words ;
I painted the warrior – representing me - and glued the image on my page, I added some words I still could read from the gessoed page.
At last I painted some watercolour over the page.

These are the colours I used :

After the defence shield page, I made a collage from random words found in the ‘Art Quilt Book’ from Jane Davila and Elin Waterston.
I’m working thru the book with a small yahoo-group, starting with chapter 4 already this week.

I chose ‘Marseille’ as theme ; how could I chose something else ?

This week, we have to make a fabric collage.I will make one incorporating this picture transferred on blue fabric :
Marseille III is ready to be quilted :
I hope to quilt it sometime this week.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old ;
We grow old because we stop playing.”
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

Write you soon

I love the background/borders of your Marseille III! The squares reinforce the two yellow strips on the quilt.

I also love to visit your blog every day, because you are truly using your sketchbook as a process for designing new art. I use my sketchbook only when I get ready to create something, instead of working in it everyday. Kudos to you!
