Corner to Corner Crochet Afghan C2C

This crochet afghan was created on the diagonal. While in-progress it grew larger and larger, becoming a seemingly immense triangle shaped half square, eventually levelling off to a tidy rectangle. The technique for this blanket is known as Corner to Corner or C2C. It's a simple easy pattern that is definitely worth a go, even for novice crocheters. There are several excellent video tutorials to be found online by searching "corner to corner crochet" and "C2C crochet."

This bird is a quick loose sketch created on a colour washed background. It's more art journal experimentation, this time feeling out the mix of graphite and acrylic.

Dog Art Journal Painting

This dog portrait is something a little different, because art journals are for experimentation and play. Using a limited palette of primary colours with black and white, this painting was a chance to practice colour mixing, and having a dog as subject matter allowed for new challenges on a whole other level. Good Dog.

Torn Book Page Bird Stitched Collage

Winter is a collage combining paper, paint, fabric and stitch. The accent colors in purple and orange hint at the remnants of Autumn while the muted lighter areas suggest a cool Winter sun. The collage began with a book page. Small scraps of fabric and torn paper were glued and stitched, a bird image wad added and finally paint was applied to small areas to complete the piece. It's a mixed media meditation on the beauty of the ever changing seasons.
