more sketchbook

still working slowly with the baby dresses, above using Ko i nor dyes
Sian suggested holding areas up to the light, so i draped one over my lamp so i could see all the layers a bit like an x ray (husband said 'oh you're going to burn the house down'!) so the above and below are straight drawings through a light source

then i got the Quink out (do they still make it?)and worked quickly looking at creases and tucks

finally a rubbing over a sleeve on tissuetex with a wax crayon, would love to try the idea of pressing in damp paper. Now to finish making felt!
