Wanderlust 2021 - weeks thirteen to sixteen - Silhouettes
I am so pleased I signed up to Wanderlust this year as it is bringing me a lot of joy. I am loving using different techniques and media and learning a lot. Week thirteen was about using a gel plate to manipulate a print and image, adding colour to it to look a bit like an Andy Warhol silk screen print. The second technique was tracing over the image and then blotting it carefully on another piece of paper, then painting it in. Both of these techniques were new to me, so it was a learning experience. I think the end result on the right is more Matisse than Andy Warhol though!
Recycling is the theme for the next four weeks. I'm so looking forward to it!

Latest card makes and looking like Harry Potter
I have been making various cards for friends, family and colleagues.
...and the back.
Finally, Easter cards.
In other news, I, like a lot of the UK, am desperate for a haircut! At the moment my usually short and under control hair is crawling down my neck and tickling my ears.

In fact, I think look a bit like Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, which may be a good look for him, but isn't for me! I have an appointment on 22nd April which can't come soon enough.
