Winter stretches on and I know the saying around here is "clean another closet", but cleaning is boring. Art is fun.
I jumped in on a lettering challenge a few days ago, after not doing any for a while.
This one was just today, a quote from "Downton Abbey" for the "favorite show" prompt.
Yesterday was "pick a favorite food" and that's a no-brainer, right?
And the day before that the prompt was to pick a quote from a favorite book (and I can't possibly choose a favorite), and this one from The Warrior's Apprentice came to my mind. It was actually a terribly long quote to letter, and got very crowded.
Also a week or so ago I tried out something else that had been dinging around in my head. I have been wanting to try using Gelli prints like fabric and make them into geometric quilt block patterns.
I actually used my rotary cutter and cut the pieces of printed paper according to what I would need for the design. I have more patterns I want to try, but many of my plans are more complex and I almost think I will need bigger paper...
(Apologies for the side-ways photo.)
I had a lot of fun with these. And then the question comes... should I leave them as they are, or put treat them like mixed media backgrounds and add layers? I can't decide. It would be nice to get around to making some color copies and then I could try things out.
