shivas, rubbing and stuff
I have been playing with the Cedar Canyon rubbing plates and Shiva stiks - this is one of the Curves ones. They are really fabulous for rubbings - great deep etched surfaces. Working on my rust and stuff I have used copper, orange and gold on black polycotton.
Here I have used the tissutex from previous (the Moonshadow mop up piece) and worked rubbings with the three Shivas but moving the rubbing plate around underneath. I have sprayed a bit more of one of the blue Moonshadows over the surface. I am working on a stitched piece which I will post tomorrow.
People are always emailing complaining about my photo so I have made a real effort and had a variety of 'smiley' ones taken. Hope you like my new pic - I am not good at smiling for photos so I shall practise from now on.
The Tattoo is on at our park Friday and Saturday and we have been entertained with the rehearsals for the past three nights. Very enjoyable.
Val and Jim have spent 3 weeks cruising around parts of the eastern states - started and finished in Melbourne. They went up as far as Coffs Harbour I think and down to the south of NSW - we followed their trip on the map and I saw all those towns where so many of our customers live. Maybe one day we should go too - they said it was lovely country.
