|Photo frames have many uses ...|
We are on the ferry returning from Ireland (Rosslare to Fishguard) where we have been travelling for the last ten days. It seems a world away from Warwickshire Open Studios and my excitement at greeting so many visitors into my caravan studio. Days in which I have hardly had time to think of the mixed-media journal I was to create whilst away - but that's work for you; it takes over, though I have notes (pages of them) and sketches a-plenty. When I have had time to think creatively, it has been of new directions - decisions on what I want to do; new style journals using techniques and materials that are as yet unknown to me.; and completing all those projects-in-progress. I haven't yet set down my plan, but just before we went away, I bought these two little photo frames (can't recall where, which is a nuisance, because I may want more!) Wood, with space for a back and front cover image of some sort, on fabric most likely, and inside - individual pages or concertina book - I am not sure, but the subject will again be TREES (wood is turned into paper, and the frame is wood, so what better subject could there be to fill this book-with-a-difference? The plaster hearts will grace some other project. More details will follow at some later date, when I drag myself back from the magic of Ireland, and when I have better WiFi access than 'internet@sea' - very slow.
