Cup 09/06/09
I think I am berry addicted at the moment. This strawberry cover is apt as the cup contains a strawberry and blueberry smoothie for my post-cycling breakfast.

This week I am moving into the red. The texture here was created using a natural sponge.

Cup 05/06/09
A not entirely successfully experiment trying to blend 2 colour pastes into each other with the comb, whilst creating paste grain papers. The pink/red is a little too puce.

Cup 04/06/09
This picture of blackcurrant fool sprinkled with contrasting green pistachios caught my eye. This seasons blackcurrants just need to ripen before I can do something similar - I don't think I've cut the recipe up....

Cup 03/06/09
This is cut from an craft paper bag. The kind you get in art and craft shops, made out of paper used for printing synthetic fabric. The offcuts could be used to print on synthetic fabric at home by iron over the bag, print side down on a piece of synthetic fabric. Results vary.

Cup 02/06/09

Cup 02/06/09
Unfortunately the texture cannot be clearly seen here. I used some old face scrub/buff - which has always been a better art tool than it ever was as a bathroom accessory. Although the texture isn't clear here I was trying to acheive something that reminded me of the chive flowers currently in bloom in my garden.

Cup 01/06/09

Cup 01/06/09
I am looking at colour and for some reason starting with purple - this is the week of predominantly purple. Continuing with the letter 'P' I am looking at some of old design techniques - so paste grain papers. I found some wallpaper paste and mixed that up with some acrylic and cast about for some pattern making tools. I found I had an old tile grout spreader to comb through the wet paste.
