In my usual style I got a bit hooked and without any major deadlines pressing me I was able to spend a few days just playing at home.
I chose a limited colour palette as I have enough stuff already and I didn't want to have to pull everything out but it was great to work in these bright colours. I think I have been a bit earthy in my palette lately.
In the workshop we played with paper, fabric, ribbons, lace, buttons and generally anything we could find but again I limited myself to fabric, paper, some non woven products, felt and beads and threads. It was very scary that whatever I felt I needed - I had ample supplies.
I also tend to buy a lot of books which I read and then put aside - for another day. One such book was Magaret Beals latest Fusing Fabric book, so I pulled it out - along with all the bits and pieces I needed and played around with sheers and felt and layers too. They made a great textural addition to the book.
Here are some of the pages.
