My new organisational regime for 2014
is, so far, successful.
I am like a whirling dervish in the mornings
and afternoons, with a strict timetable to
adhere to - and then I go crazy mad with
my Life Book and Soul Food arting :)
|(Life Book - Positive Affirmation for 2014)|
Life Book, Lesson 2, was with
and was a journal page with our own
positive affirmation for 2014.
I decided that I will be the
Queen of Time.
Al the bubbles represent the units of time
floating away, lost forever, if I don't
take control of them.
|(Soul Food - sketching with pens)|
Soul Food, Lesson 2, was with
and was all about sketching with pens.
No pencils. No rubbers (erasers).
I am surgically attached to my rubber.
This was a really interesting
(and difficult) exercise, and I learnt to make
sure and meaningful marks on the paper without
the safety net of being able to rub them out.
|(Soul Food - Layer Cake)|
Soul Food Lesson 3
was with Cathy Bluteau
and she made a beautiful cake
out of scrapbook papers, beads
I started to make one too but, you know,
it was too perfect,
Anyone who knows my cooking knows
that I could never ever produce
anything like that!
So I started again.
lots of it.
Much more like the cakes that
emerge from my kitchen!
Grant likens my cooking to that of
Ria from Butterflies,
which is, I think, a little harsh.
(Do you remember this programme?
I loved it!).
Although I did forget to put the milk in a
pudding this week which made it
a rather unusual dish.
I made sure they ate it all up.
Anyway, back to my layer cake -
I used patterned tissue paper for the cake
layers rather than scrapbook paper.
I am so enjoying both classes,
although I'm getting into a right old
muddle with the next Soul Food lesson.
I haven't got the right sized paper
so I'm having to scale everything down -
it's making my brain tickle :/
Thank you for looking!
