Playing with marks and letters

Some play today - with letters and a few of those marks I've been generating ... fun and games with brush, pen and ink, a cardboard window and the scissors ...





I think this is nothing more, just fun and games (and a set of cards to be sent to friends when the need arises) ... but nevertheless good to do.

  1. Lovely marks and I also liked the wet on wet ones.

    1. Thank you, Debbie. I've almost finished my current mark making book and then I will move onto something else - marks with stitch? or marks on a variety of papers? - or in colour? I have yet to decide!

  2. The texture of the paper particularly calls to me, I suppose as a printmaker, and your marks fall together besutifully on that surface - the solid blacks, the textural transparent areas and the bold reds! Stunning.

    1. Very many thanks for these kind and encouraging comments. I think in another life (one of several possibilities in my imagination!) I might have been a printmaker, having done graphic design as part of my teacher training in the mid-sixties. I remain drawn to paper with its textures and struggle with how to reconcile it with the other thing I enjoy now - handstitch on (mostly) white ground. These small pieces came out of all the mark making play I have been doing recently, coupled with the excellent workshop on asemic text I took with Anita Bruce at the end of March.
