feeling graphic-ee

i've been a good girl and done some tidying up - well a little bit - between throwing some paint around and stitching. Anyway - one of the good things about tidying up is that you find things you had forgotten you had. This book was buried -- along with about 10 others i made -- under a mountain of life drawings. it's nice being reunited with old friends and it brings back memories of what i was doing when i made them.

I just want to dive right in there and explore your book! I know what you mean about finding old work...like reuniting with a part of yourself too.

yeah, me too! i want to look at them *closely*!!

that's the thing about books/journals ... when i look at them later they take me right back to what i was doing/where i was at the time. it doesn't matter that i don't remember details, what matters is going back to the overall theme (if that's the right word) of the time... it makes me smile, it makes me say, 'oh yeah, i remember that.

Lovely, and beautifully photographed too!

Talking of memories and art evoking them. I listen to music while I work and certain pieces of music remind me of certain art pieces and vice versa.

Hugs,

hey kate, i received my package too -- thank you! when i saw the envelope my eyes lit up ... now who could have sent that? (it got here so fast) i love it all -- i will use the bits and bobs with great relish.

over at 'the pulse'... loved your answer today. and i have never, ever associated what you do with prissy. it's total non-prissyness is what calls me.

ooh! I like the bottom one especially.. would you talk us thru the process?

I have to say a big thankyou for my stuff, I had to laugh it was so neatly packaged. That was the first thing I ever won, so its very chuffing.

how did i make it? As far as i remember.... well first of all the theme was lettering so i took loads of photos of lettering (including some i already had like the graffiti on the berlin wall and the writing on hector pieterson's grave). then i mucked around on a photocopier. my favourite buttons being the zoom and the inverse buttons. then i made the cover by stitching 2 layers of acetate and trapping things in it. and made takes from old paper and metal. i think that was more or less it.

sorry - i forgot - the orange is flourescent spraypaint.
