I loved the course I did with Roxanne Evans Stout which resulted in my Four Seasons book, so have done another course with her to produce a Nature Journal.
Flowers from the garden photographed on a plate, surrounded by real flowers that I glued down with matte medium:
Painting of flowers and a scrap of eco printed rice paper:
A drawing and a mono print:
More eco printed paper with a mono print:
A tiny concertina book glued on to the page: The birds and butterfly are taken from RSPB magazines.
I so loved the effect that I did a second:
The background on this page is a piece of paper on to which I pounded the imprints of leaves and flowers, then enhancing these with ink:
Walking out from the studio, I saw the sun red in the sky. Together with the strange light in the sky it was an extraordinary sight. I spread modelling paste over some grasses, which i then removed and when the paste was dry I used inks to colour the page.
This is a work in progress, I intend to continue until I have used up all the pages in this sketchbook! There is always something new to see in the garden.
