Today we had the morning off and celebrated by taking my trusty Bernina in for a service. I have worked it so hard lately that I thought it deserved one. I'm gearing up to start a new body of work based on the Above the Earth book.
I have an idea for a series - the titles are there: earth stories, earth mother, earth elements and so on. Clive suggested 'The earth moved' but I have treated that with the contempt it deserves.
I have scanned and printed a few images, as the book is so heavy to have on one's lap. Tonight I shall work on some drawings. Have you ever played 'swoopy' games with the (flat bed) scanner? They are a bit like 'swoopy' photos in that you move the source as the scanner is in motion. I find the just moving the book up and down slowly gave me this result - original image below and swoopy one below that.
If you wiggle the book you get an image like this.
Making a negative image works well here.
Quite fun - have a try.
