Creativity: Making a Book II

IMG_4872 (Large)

I’ve been doing a variety of creative things while I’m all alone with no distractions apart from the three cats (mainly Zelda…), including working on content in the book I made last week. It’s autumn (well, now winter) and there are plenty of colourful leaves to pick up. I’ve made rubbings (just like in primary School!), and made little paintings as well.

On a walk one day, I found a magenta button, and a clear red bead on the path (not together). I have sewn them on the front cover of my book to make a closure – I need something on the back, plus a string or cord to tie it together.

I’ve put the rest into a gallery – click on an image for a closer look. I’ve taken the book along on outings, and drawn at a bus stop and in a cafe, I’ve also done some drawing whilst watching Nirvana on YouTube with a cat on my lap (Zelda – who else). I painted a peony from a Japanese Kimono fabric, and Kurt from my Rolling Stone. On the opposite page (not shown) is a Kikki K sticker that says “Inspiration is all around you” – so true!
