More small pieces from Notes from Studio B

I've got three canvases painted a dark navy waiting for me to attach them.

I've also started the piecing process with a couple of the wet cyanotypes on turquoise fabric. This is how they look this morning on my work table.

A Play Day from Notes from Studio B

Last Friday Lisa and Kathleen drove out to Weiser for a play day. I had a  fresh indigo pot, soy wax  and all sorts of clamps and plexiglass glass shapes ready to go. We played with a variety of fabrics and created some really cool designs.

Here's Lisa tying some organza with bright orange yarn.
