The New Computer.

 I have a passion for new technology. Digital art in particular. I have embraced it to the detriment  of my traditional art.
I recently bought a second computer and was so pleased to find that my eight year old version of Photoshop could be loaded on it.
You cannot buy a new version of photoshop you have to rent it from Adobe.. What a money making swizz!

I was getting a bit excited at this point!


This is my first photo manipulation made on my new computer.

The case of the missing Mojo.

Well! it's October already and my Mojo has been missing for most of this year, 
I am ready to attempt to find it,  I shall take it very slowly, perhaps if I creep up on it I can catch it unawares!
What I shall try and do is take a photo of everything I make during the course of one week this will include my digital doodles, works in progress and attempts at artistic photography. 

Week starting yesterday 17th October 2016.
I made a start on some bunting for my grandaughter's bedroom. I had already made the curtains.

Lots of fabric from The Bull Ring Market Birmingham 

Not bad but it is not artistically challenging is it?

The image below is a WIP. I go to a class on Fridays which is hosted by a superb stitcher. She despairs of  some of us getting anything done. We have such fun in this group. Occasionally I follow instructions this was one of them. Our glorious leader let us plunder her stash for bits of hand dyed fabric and told us to do random and free size cross stitch on it. It may, eventually, sometime before I shuffle off, become a pincushion.

January new start.

I have seriously lost my  art mojo in recent years. I have only occasionally made a half hearted attempt to do something .
Recently I treated myself to a new Wacom Graphics tablet. The one I have used for years is very basic. I celebrated by making a frothy, pink, girly image. Tah Dah!

WOYWW and other stuff.

My work desk is not exactly brimming with completed projects this week. I have just started to work on my 'Wreck this Journal' I find it very hard to be destructive so It's probably a good exercise eh? 
I decided to use a limited colour palette of purples and pinks in this journal (imposing order you see) I popped into Staples for some Sharpies, picked up about six at £1.40 each. At the checkout desk was a complete set of colours on offer for £9.50. You have to have your wits about you, dem shops is slippery divils!
You can also see a set of felting needles from Heidifeathers they are sized and colour coded. I'm just getting to grips with the technicalities of it all. 
Still ploughing through my PHD's it's the turn of the half finished felted stuff this week. This post is for Julia's WOYWW
Hope you all have a happy productive week.
 Don't forget to visit Julia at Stamping ground if you haven't already.
