we were basically playing with paper, stitch and fabric. our initial task was to make some 'coloured papers'.
|using acrylic paint and scraping circles|
|more scraping, sticking of spots and mark making|
we were then given 5 tasks to make a series of small pieces joining firstly 2 pieces together, then 3,4,5 and 6 using the above coloured papers and any 'found' pieces we had brought with us.
|2, 3, and 4 joins i knew there would be a use for those Rizzler roll up papers i picked up from the street|
|5 pieces joined|
|6 pieces joined and cut through|
then we had to make a collage using again the paper we had coloured, found papers and any image we liked. i continued with the cloud shape i have used in my lace chapters.

we then had to turn it over and cut it up without considering the front! Difficult! then we added stitch etc to some of the pieces.
|left piece has the addition of some tufted organza|
finally we were allowed to 'play' with a more considered approach. i have recently been thinking beyond the Diploma (if there is life after!) and sketching from reflections in windows/mirrors etc.so i based my 3 pieces on these images.

|i have wanted to use that piece of sellotape for ages, this piece working with cotton organdie|
|using lettering and pieces of paper stuck onto card, painted to give 3D effects and more organdie|
|adding a piece of metal and spray paint|
i felt exhausted when i got home and only beginning to surface into normality, i actually managed to work on my windmills today and have a tidy up. i will certainly use what i have learnt with Louise in the future.
