This and that
I have spent most of the day still cleaning out the room I hope to convert into a work shed.
I have moved stuff out and washed the floors twice and swept down cobwebs, still more to do but it does look better.
I found these few cosmos flowering up in the vegetable garden, it is so dry things are not looking very good,
A few more pages of my book, the first is thumb and finger prints on a long sheet I folded into an accordion style booklet, then another page, the first was using 2 nails and a hammer to make marks and texture, and that was put next to an exercise in making repeat marks, I chose grasses.
The third is a piece of black fabric that we stamped using soy wax as a resist and then using bleach to see what came out underneath, in my case, green!
I bought several pieces of black cotton from all the local fabric shops and they all came out a slightly different colour, one almost a peachy cream, interesting. I think you really need to have the bleach fresh as sometimes I have had no reaction at all.
The weather man is forcasting rain, I hope so but they havent often been right lately and we need it so badly.
