I'm Back

I've been away, we spent last week in Wales, here to be exact. We had a lovely time and I didn't want to come home. We went from Monday to Friday and it just wasn't long enough. I came back to work on the Saturday and I just haven't been able to get back into the swing of things. I'm sure you know that feeling.

One thing I have managed to do is work on my Shape sketchbook for my course. It's going in the right direction but it's not finished.

Here I have been looking at circles, how they are used in design and advertising and I have started to play around with them. Looking at this page now I could have made a face with measles using the coloured dots- Can you see it? Although I'm not sure that's what teacher had in mind :-)

This is some of my work on squares. I particularly like the pattern I made at the bottom left of the right hand page. I'm sure that would make a nice quilt. And I'm sure that's what the teacher had in mind more than a face of measles.

This is just a couple of pages where I was playing around with shapes and making patterns.

Hopefully I will get my creative mojo back soon and more interesting things will be produced.
I hope you have a good weekend whatever the weather.

Well my computer skills are worse than I thought cause i honestly thought I had left a comment!!! Oh well it was that the tessilations are very impressive and only eight weeks before you go back to Wales. Fingers crossed I press the right buttons this time oh that knowing me could be doubtful.

A word from teacher... "A Face with measles"???? Did you really think you'd get away with that? We missed you on Wednesday.

Welcome back, altho I'm surprised you could be prised away from that gorgeous Welsh lodge! I hope the measles isn't catching ;o) Looks like you've been busy with these sketchbook exercises. I have a load of black shapes cut out that I should have stuck into mine long ago! hey ho!
