‘Best wishes for Christmas,however you may be spending it, and for a marvellous 2021 to all my fellow club members’
Avril had fun today trying out her carbon paper which worked well, using Frances' tree photo as a base. Brush pens were used to section off the various shapes and black outlines with felt tip. She says, 'I think it is hard to find the abstract tree but is a different technique to try. It could be sectioned into smaller areas and make interesting shapes for textiles.'
She also used a wreath as the base for her Christmas greeting.
Is the message from Avril to go with the card.
'Wishing everyone a merry time this Christmas.'
'Another collage, with Press and pencils. The Fuchsias are in full bloom in the garden, so they can be my Xmas card to everyone:
'Wishing you all a peaceful and hopefully uneventful New Year. Thank you to Noreen and Hannah for the blog and everyone’s ideas and challenges, which I’ve really enjoyed. Diana x'
