The first step was to paint a journey which could be imaginary onto lining paper using just black paint and different widths of paint brushes. My journey was from home to work but I got a bit lost on the way, never mind. (What's new!NLW)
Then we had to fill in all the spaces with other marks or patterns.
On this picture if you look closely at the bottom you can see where Ann and I played noughts and crosses.
We have got to continue working on this at home. The next step is to isolate areas, transfer them to our sketch books and then play with them. Next we need to make stitched samples using any technique we like but still only in black and white. At this point I may have screwed my nose up just slightly but Gill saw me and she suddenly turned into the class snitch and got me into trouble. All I was doing was imagining my sampler with a bit of red. I'd better do my homework if I want to stay out of trouble.
At least my cards are colourful, these are some more that I've made for our sales table at the exhibition. We are going to have a great sales table looking at all the things we have made.
