I often seem to work in a series now. I should probably do more sketchbook work, but tend to just dive straight in when I am working in a series - only using a sketchbook when I start something really new, and even then probably not with the discipline that I should (all part of the untidy mind I guess).
Well, after my session with the paints (the neat rows of blobs) and the treasure gold, I was looking through my stash of mono print tissue papers, the ones I had already stuck onto rag paper, and another image jumped out at me.
You might remember this one. Before stitching.
And after stitching -hmm not sure this is the best pic I could find. In reality it is better than this.
Here is the second print with some stencilling started.
Stenciling with paint then using treasure gold as you can see.
Building up the diamonds with small paper diamond shapes stuck on (chocolate wrappers, since you ask).
Building up the paper collage, the strips of paper are painting dictionary pages (a bargain from the chartity shop for a £1.00 because some one had already cut some pages out).
This is a work in progress. Moving onto the stitching next. I will be using organza again.
Look out for the next instalment (which reminds me that I haven't shared Alchemy with you either, but that is ramping along and I did not take many photos as the work was proceeding).
