Draw the book your reading.

I love AndyGoldsworthy's work with leaves and the book gives a bit more insight into the processes he uses. Beginning with using only windfall leaves and progressing to testing them at various times of year and finding what each type of leaf wants/ is prepared to do. I particularly like the boxes of london plane and the most basket like of the sweet chestnut structures.

In my own mind some of my explorations of unlikely plant materials for baskets and paper seem a bit less mad -- knitting with couchgrass roots anyone?

I made this

I made this ( and then drew it).
I've been meaning to try making my own stitched notebook for ages, #13 of the 75ways book just gave me the impetus to get on and do it. 32 pages stitched into 4 signatures, a recycled cardboard box cover and a press stud pop fastener.

I've got the signatures folded for my next notebook already- going for a coptic binding this time.

Ooh a and a lovely link for book binders

Anyone wanting to buy me a present, one (or all 4) of her little books would be lovely. From the Etsy shop on the right hand side bar.

75 ways to draw more

I've joined in Michael Nobbs 75 ways to draw more group on Flikr, and have consequently been drawing loads more. It's really good fun, it's stopped me waiting for inspiration to strike, cos I can go to the list and choose something. I particularly like No 8 -Do lots of bad drawings.

Permission to do bad drawings makes the chances of the odd good one happening much higher.

So my new flikr photostream is here.
here is my drawing for #29 Draw your lover
