This month's theme is words... a nice one for me as I often end up with words on my sketchbook pages. Sometimes I wonder whether I am being lazy by using words - shouldn't I be able to say what I want with images?
I wonder what you think? I welcome your thoughts on this - so please let me know!
Here are two of the images I uploaded to the Sketchbook Challenge flickr group this evening - two recently made pages.
Wine farms - one of my favourite subjects - part of a doublr page spread that might just get made into a quilt one day.
OAK - after sweeping up lots of fallen leaves I had a big pile that I made into some nice pages, and then made a little bonfire with the rest.
Words are figuring a lot in my work at the moment - I have just completed 3 quilts that are literally smothered in words. They will be on display at the Unfolding Stories exhibition in Bradford on Avon next week, along with 2 others made not too long ago. I will post some pictures next week once the exhibition is up and running.
