|The first draft|
April's design was well received by Elizabeth, but she suggested that it might be edited. She's right of course, with the lines it had made it all a bit busy. Plus - like me - she was a bit distracted by the birdhouse pentagon (she thought it looked like a coffin - ouch! (grin)). So I played for a few hours this week with the design - again. Tessa, my teen, still thought the arrow was a bit much (and she could very well be right) but I elected to keep that.
|The final draft|
After several - and I mean several edits - I finally decided on a design. It wasn't too hard to come up a decent value sketch - and I had already come up with a palette - how hard could it be to pick out which fabric goes where?????
OMG - after pinning up fabric on my design board for an hour - I gave up and decided to try it on the computer. At least this will give me a better idea of
where to start with the fabric trials. The afternoon flew by and since tonight is the opening night of the Tessa's spring musical - I had to give it a rest. I don't feel like I got much accomplished!
Find of the Week
I have come a bit late to the new world of the "App" since I don't own a mobile phone (that's right I'm one of the 5% who doesn't in this country !) . Since I won a nice kindle at work, I could now explore them a bit. I found the game Blendoku which is a great puzzle game where you blend colors by hue and value. Not only is it fun but its also good practice! I must be learning a thing or two in my studio since I can easily beat the "World's Average" time. The game is relaxing - not too taxing and its not a huge time waster. Anyways - I know you can find it for the kindle Fire (and Android phones) so I wouldn't doubt there is a version for the Ipad too.
So what have you been up to creatively this week?
