Hats and Headgear

Well ! I shall be scraping through by the skin of my teeth to get this in for Tag Tuesdays's  'Hats and Headgear' prompt. The new format for TT is proving very successful with lots more joining in.
One of my favourite artists is Leyendecker  I have used a number of his images here cutout and overlaid. I enjoyed doing this.

Bookworm for Tag Tuesday

My first creation for the new and improved Tag Tuesday 😀 Well that's a lie for a start!! I made this some time ago I was going to make it into a greetings card but as with all my good intentions that didn't happen. 😧 I think that  it just about fits the brief.
I actually own the Nursery rhyme book and it appears in a few digital images.

Kind Regards to anyone kind enough to take a peek.

The New Computer.

 I have a passion for new technology. Digital art in particular. I have embraced it to the detriment  of my traditional art.
I recently bought a second computer and was so pleased to find that my eight year old version of Photoshop could be loaded on it.
You cannot buy a new version of photoshop you have to rent it from Adobe.. What a money making swizz!

I was getting a bit excited at this point!

This is my first photo manipulation made on my new computer.

The case of the missing Mojo.

Well! it's October already and my Mojo has been missing for most of this year, 
I am ready to attempt to find it,  I shall take it very slowly, perhaps if I creep up on it I can catch it unawares!
What I shall try and do is take a photo of everything I make during the course of one week this will include my digital doodles, works in progress and attempts at artistic photography. 

Week starting yesterday 17th October 2016.
I made a start on some bunting for my grandaughter's bedroom. I had already made the curtains.

Lots of fabric from The Bull Ring Market Birmingham 

Not bad but it is not artistically challenging is it?

The image below is a WIP. I go to a class on Fridays which is hosted by a superb stitcher. She despairs of  some of us getting anything done. We have such fun in this group. Occasionally I follow instructions this was one of them. Our glorious leader let us plunder her stash for bits of hand dyed fabric and told us to do random and free size cross stitch on it. It may, eventually, sometime before I shuffle off, become a pincushion.
