This page is just drawn in pencil, and generally, that is where I start, then I go back and rework the pages later with color. going back over the sketches this way allows me to revisit ideas and remember what I was going to do. It's a great way to find inspiration when you are at a loss.
Another thing I learnt when doing this page was that ink jet prints do work with medium and PVA and will not bleed - BUT you have to leave them for a few days, maybe a week to allow the ink to set and use neat PVA or heavy medium (the less water, the better) to glue and gloss over them.
I have had bleeds when using ink jet prints in the past and now I think that perhaps I really did not let them set properly in this way and used PVA with too much water.
Any way, that was just a brief look into my always incomplete and sometimes messy paper work. Perhaps because of my painting and drawing background, I find this work invaluable to my textile work. Like this blog, keeping a record of what I do and how it all turns out does come in handy down the track.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Design is knowing which ones to keep.
