This blog is supposed to be a record of my work and an incentive to do it. Two of the things I think are really important in designing and creating my art are free machine practice and sketchbooks. I am not as diligent in either of these two things as I should be.
I am going to try and do a quilting sample every day. It is something I need to do, because my quilting is a little haphazard at times. I will be doing a little four inch sample each day and will bind them with eyelets and rings into a little sample book I can use to refer to and to show.
My method so far is pretty simple
Another thing I think I need to do every day is to take photos to use in my sketchbook, art book and journal. My sketchbook is where I simply draw and paint. My art book is where I encorporate mixed media and samples into little pieces of work and my journal is my notebook, where I record ideas, write notes to myself and generally nut things out.
So here are today's photos
There is a significant trend in my photos, isn't there, but this is what I see each day.
I will try to post on these two things once a week or sometimes every two weeks when things are really busy. I will also try to include examples of using these two things, like quilting in pieces of work or sketchbook or artbook pages.
