Be Creative prompts and Regents Park Theatre

4th September 2014

I think I have mentioned before that I have joined the online group 'Be Creative' organised by Textile Artist Myfanwy Hart. This is a brilliant group with lots of ideas and support for all members.

During September Myfanwy is posting prompts each day and today I have spent a pleasant couple of hours catching up....

Prompt 1, print with beverage (shortened version)

....my effort, printed background using leaves from my garden....


....prints using yellow, red and green acrylic paint...


.... practised my calligraphy...


...I was out of my comfort zone doing this prompt!

Prompt 3 was a picture of 2 apples....

....I decided to cut apples in two different ways and print...





...haven't done this since I was teaching Reception Class many years ago!!

I cut out apple shapes then cut strips from the paper that was left .....


.....made a collage with cut outs.



Prompt 4 was to find a piece of fabric and cut 3, 4" x 2" pieces in similar shades and one contrasting....


...chose my indigo dyed and space dyed muslin in orange..


....we haven't been told what to do with these fabrics yet.....

....enjoyed a glass of red while watching the other people in the park...
