'Malvern Spring Flower Show' from whence I always blog live (WiFi permitting). Double-click the image if you would like to read the page at full size.
Before any visit to Malvern (a venue we love and to which we return at least three times a year), I start a new creative project. Part-planned before leaving, it usually involves some prepping of pages (or maps) before we leave. And because I am never sure how things will pan out, I all but take the proverbial kitchen sink in the way of equipment and materials. Circumstances now mean I must eliminate boxes and baskets 'just in case'. I've slimmed down but, until I had played with the techniques I want to use, could not decide what I simply COULD NOT DO WITHOUT - and these were predicated on travelling with less. Without my intermittent creative play, truly I would lose my sanity; it is my release, and my way of switching off. So this morning, out with some simple materials, and a little play-time. Colours are necessarily pale to suit this washed out Spring; extra layers need adding. Image shows this experimental page - no proper layout, just repetitive sampling to see what technique works best. Double-click the image to view it at larger size.
