The theme for April has been “Branching out - out on a limb”. I still enjoy a little glue and scissors play, so I have made a couple of sketches.
The first one is a simple tree shape cut from junk mail with a little bird perching on a tiny little branch by itself instead of nesting in the safe tree crown. Yeah, I can feel it.
The other one, “Now, listen!” is a raw sketch based on this picture.
I fell in love with these two trees over Easter. Don’t they look like an old and wise one giving advice to a young one? They reminded me of my daughter and me, I can hear us through the branches; obviously I don’t have that much moss yet, but anyway. I would love to make a fiber art quilt based on the picture at some point.The sketch is made from a newspaper and a marker. Transferring the image into paper was not as easy as I thought though, but it will do for a first sketch.
Got to run; I have to drop grandson off at kindergarten, get the winter tyres off before the deadline on Monday and a little shopping to do. Wednesday night at the guild meeting I was informed that the guild, Rogaland Quiltelag, will be sponsoring the Make a Boob project with lots of embellishments and I get to pick and choose myself. Happy Friday to all of you.-)
