Red canvas challenge

Here is a pic of my first effort.  Red makes me think "China".  I hope the photo comes up!

I've added several layers to my papier mache piece based on the Fibonacci number sequence. The next stage is to sand it to try and smooth out all the lumps and bumps before adding more layers. This piece is for our exhibition later in the year.
The 4 canvases are for our Red challenge - they look distinctly orange at present (uh oh!). I'm going to define this as the under-painting (grin).

Useful websites

Hi everyone,

I've added some of my favourite websites/blogs and will add the information to enable other members to post to the blog this week. Then I hope you will post some photos, maybe from Saturdays meeting which I missed. You'll also be able to add some of your favourite links.

I'm running a giveaway on my blog at the moment - just leave a comment there and you could win a small thermofax screen and some other bits and pieces.

Above: machine embroidered reindeer and felted bag made by Juliet for our Christmas decoration swap which we always do for our Christmas meeting each year. I was lucky enough to receive these.
