So, this is my second blog post today. I am taking it easy. We've been working hard (see earlier post) and I have a crummy cold, which I think I got from Sofia, who, poor baby, has had a cold and ear infection. She is feeling much better, but I'm not. Yesterday I heard her laugh out loud for the first time. Big guffaw-y "Ha, ha." What a joyful sound. She is a cheerful Charlie.
Here's another Japanese Garden piece. Same size and format as the previous two.
I have had this idea of trying to depict the moon for awhile now. I discharged the circle behind the moon with a bleach pen. I was surprised that it discharged to purple, but it was OK. Below are the littles I made at the same time. My scraps were looking awfully somber, so I dug around and found a piece of orange and purple hand-dye to liven them up a bit. I am noticing there is a lack of any kind of yellow in the littles I've done so far. I need to remedy that. Though I am using up scraps as I work, it is not a rule that I limit myself to only those scraps. Hey, I'm making this project up as I go along. There are no rules!
