le weekend is nearly over
Then we watched all the rugby - really enjoyed the Chiefs vs Highlanders game and sorry Ali - I was pleased the Highlanders won. Lots of nasty injuries though and it is only week 1. Got up this morning to watch the Hurricanes - they didn't do too badly but with lots of tackling ran out of puff and were a bit unlucky.
I have popped in this photo of in Le Luberon in Provence - I guess these are slightly more the colours I was thinking of - have spent some time studying the wool top sample and I do like it but I am still thinking.
Today I have tidying up my studio and sorting my water soluble samples and getting ready for my workshop next Saturday. If you are in Perth and haven't done a lot of water soluble work, it will be a good workshop. There are a couple of places left if anyone is interested. You only need to bring your sewing machine and a bowl and a towel. We will be working on Romeo only - stitching, painting, moulding for starters.
I have also been spraying Tissuetex and using stencils - wrapping the paper around the Tissutex - I am enjoying the effects and also using the gelli plate. I am a bit hooked on this thing. So my combo for working has been acrylic paint, Starburst sprays and shiva stiks - lots of interesting layers. All in the Marrakesh colours and I have just started drawing and playing with designs.
