Little envelope paintings-I am using the window part of envelopes (and other parts too)-inspired by 'etc'by Sibella Court-a beautiful book I have just read-she talks about glassine envelopes. Even the word 'glassine' is lovely. I don't have any of these special things, but the windows are also glassine, so I have those. Also I have been inspired by my friend Chinmoyee's recent acquisition-some tiny Indian paintings done on old postcards-on top of the writing. The paint is opaque and matt and I thought it might be like gouache paint. So I bought some to try-it is lovely stuff! I have never used it before. It covers really well, dries quickly and is very intense in colour. Like very posh poster paint.
A bird doll-for a challenge on cloth and clay dolls. So far I have made and stuffed the body and head and am having some trouble with the beak. It looks like little legs. I am going to wire it and cover it in plaster bandage-to make it more beak like.
Two tiny quilts-I have just finished these and am going to put one on ebay and one on etsy-and will probably sell neither-but you never know!
Not to get into the washing machine
Not to drink paint water
Not to sniff candles
Not to get on the worktop
Not to eat the poisonous plant
Things Cassie has already learnt-
That people food is very interesting
That the bed is the place to be
That the big plant is fun and tasty
That getting on the worktop gets you splashed
That Tiger and Lily can be pushed quite far
