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)

Red wine...


...coffee...


Prompt 2, Poem S

....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.....

...after a lovely fish and chips meal we took a taxi to Regents Park...


...trees and pampas grass at the entrance...


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


....entrance to the theatre....


....the stage....


...the audience arriving...


...it was a brilliant experience and the weather was really kind.....

....hope this becomes an annual event!

Today we went for a gentle, slow walk to the beach ( slow and gentle because I have sciatica at the moment)



...a beautiful, warm, sunny day....


...RD and Jack enjoying the water....


....off for physio tomorrow so hope to be back to normal fairly soon!
