I had a fun day today and as a reward for being so good I received these two beautiful Journal pages from Mary Larner in England.
The titles of the pages for this month were "It's been a slice" and "I want to lose myself in your song" . Mary, as always, had created perfect pages to illustrate the challenge. Last month I received Mary's pages too and I will be quite happy to create an album just with Mary's work! I love her blog which you can find in the sidebar. Tin Can Tart.
The fun part of the day was creating my first dyed silk scarf. I want to try silk painting but I am a little nervous about it so I thought I would start with a method Judith Baker Montano describes as "Blobs". It was very interesting seeing how much the dye spread out. I used a dry white silk scarf as the dye is water based. Next time I will dampen the scarf to see whether it spreads further. I did learn not to leave the material folded as there is a slight line on the fold, noticable if you are really scrutinizing the scarf. I am very please with the end result, after all I haven't tried to dye anything, (hair doesn't count does it?), since I tie dyed back in the 60's. Silk painting here I come :)
