some further distortions



Beautiful day in Perth after a lovely night in the garden with friends - should do it more often.

I have further worked my leaf this time on kunin felt so it could still be lying about on  the forest - I am pleased with the fabric I am experimenting on, puffs up and will be worth experimenting on the embellisher..

Also experimenting with the different weights of Lutradur 70gsm and 130gsm - the fragility of the fabric is what is appealing - a little like the world today.

What am I reading and enjoying very much? Joy Cowley's memoirs - Navigation.I have always really enjoyed her adult books and eagerly devoured the few she has written. Especially of interest the fact that she grew up in Foxton but before my time. She has a very astute sense of life.

So back to my book reading....

Your leaf gets better and better Dale - it makes me think of very ancient artifacts as well as decaying leaves. I love the distortions of both pieces.

Dear Dale
I really love Joy Cowley's books and spiritual writings too.
I didn't realise she was originally from up our way.
Amazing lady.

Christmas hugs
