Back on track

So for the last two days I have been re reading and going over what I have done for Module 4 so far. It was pleasing to see that there was more work completed than I had thought. So I have made more notes - very good at this! - and begun at the beginning by playing with envelopes and stamps. I have three sketchbooks on the go with Media Research, Lettering Research and Grid Research all are in the process of being filled and the results will be posted on the Module 4 blog very, very soon.

After a busy September of organising the Children back into school routine, Church Flower rota - will have to tell the Lady who organises this that September is not a good month for me - and the renovating of the Banner. I was hoping for the first Thursday of October to be the first whole day I could devote to Coursework BUT OH NO... School decided that today would be an INSET day as the Children had been busy helping at the Open Evening until 8.30pm last night and they needed a rest day. Inbetween helping Daughter to pack her rucksack for her Duke of Edinburgh experdition this weekend - she goes tomorrow after school - and helping Son with homework I just managed some time this afternoon to play with the Photoshop Pro. I am a complete novice and should have some lessons, but I did get some interesting images for the sketchbook.

Blue Stamps with topography and eroded Edges

Orange/Gold Stamps with Contour

I like the Contour effect and I hope this piece will be inspire some interesting paper designs. The ideas are busy running through my mind with awhole lot of other personal stuff at the moment, but that's another blog for another day...

I love the effects you have achieved with your stamps and photo shop pro - super job!

Thanks for the comment about being published, yes it is a kick, but I can't believe it's really me!
