Do you have a sketchbook or studio journal? I prefer to call mine a studio journal as I keep everything that relates to fiber in it. It has lists of things to do, inspirational photos, sketches, collages etc. Here’s a piece that I started with line and I showed you the background before. It didn’t seem finished so I added some flowers and a quote. This is really not my usual style or color combination but I am trying to play with more colors some of which I rarely use in my work. It’s good to try to “paint outside the lines” and try something different.
This is a sketch that I am working on to develop stencils and screen prints of fossils. These are ammonites. I do have one stencil of an ammonite but it is a bit precise and straight edged for me. I like the more natural look in this sketch.
And more fossils. This page is just barely started. I want to fill the entire page and then make a screen for screen printing. It will be more of a background texture than anything I think.
Have you been following the Sketchbook Challenge? It is a great resource if you want to try and work in your sketchbook or journal more often. Or if you just want to see what everyone else is doing, check out the Flickr page.
