If you are just visiting for today, you may wish to go the the first post for the day as this is the continuation of my weekend ART project.
I finished a layer on each page of glazes. I tried very hard to get a dark, neutral look. My inspiration for the darkness is Judy Wilkenfeld at Red Velvet Creations. She does the most gorgeous work and in dark tones that just grab me.
All I can say is somebody is going to have to hide the colors from Norah'S sight. No matter how hard I try, color just creeps in. For example, I was all done with this stage and picked up the green gold that I had so far resisted. I agreed with her, the muse, that if I was going to do flowers on each page, I needed to add a little green now.
Here is my first sketch. You may notice it is in the back of the book. Not quite the last page but close. It just happen to be the page that spoke to me.
In the CPS article Jean Littlejohn says, "No page is ever complete; each can be revisited and worked into to provide a constantly evolving reference."
I like that. I like knowing that I have given myself permission to come back to this page and the others again and again.
Will you come back tomorrow? I will be getting up early to start working on the cover. I hope my inspiration for that works out. You know I will show ....and tell......
