A New Page

Do you remember this? 
I've taken it out of my sketch book, and put it into my Ledger.  I've decided I'll develop different ideas in here instead.
The first thing I did was a representation in paint.
Then there was emulsion on tissue paper with watercolour.  I've used shapes that make up the arches and the outline shape of the brick, in a very simplified form.
Inspired by the cobwebs in the original picture, I've used scrim lace on parchment.  I cut out an arch to mirror the holes in the air brick, and the scrim lace was attached using FME.
This has given me layers to my page, first glance it looks like this,
turn over to this,
Then finally, this. 

There will be further development to this page as time goes on, but it's fun trying out different techniques.

You are so creative. Me I need patterns or instructions most of the time.

This is a really inspired page! I can see you developing this a lot further than you already have. Your creativity seems to be so inspired at the moment.

You are on a roll with this ledger. Each page is more lovely than the last.
