moth day 2
I just spent the last hour or so adding some more thread painting to the moth. It is basically done, but I'm trying to decide it I want to try adding some wire to one side with a zigzag so I can make it dimensional with the wing slightly curled.
Then I ironed the saran off the confetti leaves and cut some up to add to my hanging. I have to decide if I like them or not. This is one reason why I work so slowly. I hit a point where I'm not quite sure which direction I want to take an I have to let it rest. for today, I 'm going to call it quits, go get a snack and maybe do some knitting. Gord and I start back to yoga to-night at 5:45.
You might also notice a blog button on my sidebar for The Sketchbook Challenge . I don't like to take on too much in my already full schedule; however, it really does fit into my goals to spend more time sketching. I am keeping it small though. I did a little sketch around the January theme, Highly Prized, last night in my 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 inch Moleskine sketchbook. I discovered that the paper in this sketchbook doesn't really take watercolor. I will participate with the odd page if I can. The prescription bottle represents health, the antique nut grinder-- family and connections to the past, and the knitting stands for talents and hobbies.
