The first two squares are bits from my box & chocolate wrappers from a friend; (she didn't share it with me!) denim for a cuff - I was trying to make some cuffs with the denim - I have more than 10 pairs of jeans the kids have grown out of - but I need to invest in a denim needle, methinks! Easter sacrifice, the underside of a ripped label with paper that was wrapped round packets of fags. Being an 18 year ex smoker I object to using anything to do with cigarets but how could I resist that color! I might make an anti smoking statement collage using all the lovely papers I come across at work!
The last is flower doodles - I got the last 2 mied up as I doodled in a brief idle moment on Monday, then on Tuesday I had a wonderful day of yoga before going to work Tues pm. A friend I take classes with arranged it as our yoga teacher goes away for about 5 months over the winter & we sorely miss her. She just got back in time to join us which was lovely, changing from teacher to pupil. My friend is training to be a yoga teacher & I'm hoping she'll teach thru next winter. The day was fabulous & as well as stretching, chatting, relaxing & eating we went a little into the chakra (sp!) which I know so little about, they are within us in certain areas & each represent everthing from joy to intelligence to creativity & the point of sayig all this is the symbol of each chakra is a lotus flower, the petal count & color varying depending on where they are. I didn't know this & altho I don't know how to draw a lotus flower I drew my little flowers the day before the class & just felt a little bit of a connection...I'm rambling, but isn't that what a blog is for?!
