Busy Doing Nothing?

It feels as though I've not been here for ages... perhaps because I've not been here for ages??? But there has been much going on.




All of which could warrant their own blog post but as always happens when there is lots to blog about there is never time to do it... and when I've got the time nothing interesting seems to happen.



Today I've been with SPECTRUM, my group that meet in Ashwell. We are working hard towards an exhibition for early next year and today we have been developing work in sketchbooks... remember this sketchbook project? Well I'm still going with it (and encouraging the other group members to keep going with it!) and today I demonstrated some monoprinting with limited success...



But the addition of some coloured inks this evening has perked them up and I think I quite like them after all.

I might be back tomorrow with some photos of some of the other things I've been up to... but don't hold your breath!
(What is going on with Blogger spacing???)

  1. Love those prints Gina. I think Blogger has a mind of it's own, no matter what it is supposed to do.

  4. Only saw your small print when I reread your post. If the spacing really ticks you off, you can go into HTML and beat it into submission. Or you can wait for another day, another post, when hopefully the gremlins have been banished!

    Going to see if the corset has anything to do with your Marie Antoinette bodice?

  5. Ooh lovely! And I was about to second the html editing suggestion - I have to either edit the html or fire up a different browser these days to get images where I want them. I'm using chrome - you'd think google would be able to coordinate its browser with its blog platform!!

  7. The inks do work wonders, I like them too.

    My blogger spacing gets messed up too from time to time and I have no idea why. I will have to try the html option sometime.

  8. Love that bottom print. Blogger can be quite a nuisance at times............ always when you are in a hurry ;O)

  9. Lovely images Gina, the colours really bring them to life. I'm still on the old blogger editor because I got fed up of the weird line spacing that new editor gives but it's the photo uploading that drives me nuts sometimes.

    Btw, just had a lot of fun working out my royal name, thanks for the laugh!

  11. Ok Ok, what happened to the cake? There can't be a post without mention of a cake.... although those corsets will never fit if you keep making such gorgeous concoctions! Great monoprints. Your posts always give me ideas....
