A Very Creative Weekend!

4th May 2014

On Friday I joined a Facebook creative group at the suggestion of a friend.

This happens to be Creative Weekend and members are given a variety of prompts to encourage creativity and it has been so much fun!

1st prompt was to fold an A4 sheet into 16 equal sections and a number of prompts followed all involving circles. Lots of doodling, a little like zentangle but with specific details......




...the prompt was draw round both hands, paint nails and make fingerless gloves....


...I cut out some space dyed scrim from my stash to make the gloves....



....choosing something from the kitchen drawer and drawing with non dominant hand....




...surprised myself!!

Prompt was:- look at a chair and draw without taking your eyes off the chair in one continuous line, draw again with non dominant hand still not looking at the paper, lastly draw looking at the paper and chair.....



...NO COMMENT!!!

Another prompt was make up a word and draw an item to illustrate...





.....brainstorm SINGULAR...


....I have never done anything quite like this before but I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience!!

Still have to embellish a piece of fabric but not finished yet!

:::::

I have also been hand stitching on this cork printed tree bark....


.....used embroidery perla thread and gold thread and a variety of stitches....


...not quite sure whether this is finished !!

Must now cook our Sunday dinner......
