Painting on Textiles

via Floating Lemons: Painting on Textiles.

Had an ‘ooops’ moment when playing with art on fabric last week. It all started out fine, and I had fun dripping paint and merging colours on the screen:

Creative New Beginnings

A new blog, and the perfect place in which to keep track of my progress and the exciting new creative things I’m learning now that I’m back-to-being-a-student-again at College. I’ll admit that it hasn’t been easy shifting my mind-set back into the classroom, but I’ve had a lot of help from all instructors and fellow students so far, and I’m loving every minute of it, mistakes, trip-ups and all.

I’ve always wanted to go to art school/college, and I’m blessed enough to have this opportunity to do so – I intend soaking everything up. Today I’m working on putting this blog together, and then I’ll start filling it up with an ongoing record of what we’re learning in the workshops and classroom, as well as anything else I discover either online or off, that relates in any way to the projects at hand … that’s the intention at any rate.

I find it impossible to post anything without an accompanying image, so I’ll add a fun illustration that emerged from one of the sketches I did last term for 3 Words: Shoes, Woven & Dissect. Didn’t end up using it for the final project but I did turn it into …

Seemed rather apt for my particular situation in life right now, wouldn’t you say? Time to go through my workshop photos and get the next post up and running. Printmaking. Love it. Cheers.
