A technical hitch...

I have realised that being without a digital camera may make my bags of fun progression harder to document... However I will not allow this minor fact to concern me. I have thought that I shall just buy a small film and take progression shots like that. They won't be as regular as the others but at the moment that is the very least of my worries. I have settled on an idea, if one can call it that...

I would like to explore via my bag my idea of the face plate which I wrote about some time ago - J's @
allstitchedup bag has 'inspired', 'niggled' and assisted me to explore this 'put aside' idea once again - as I have the 'templates' already cut out I can make a start. once I have the jeans...

Without boring you,who may read this, silly - below is part of a post I wrote Feb 9th 2005 - it was title 'Reflective Thoughts'

"For instance - years ago I bought a triangular plate with faces... I bought initially because I like its design... Over the years as I have looked at it at various times I have always thought of all the other great applications could be made from it... And how with a little 'playing' with could become a great cushion or even quilt design taking into account both the shape of the plate and the faces... Faces have always fascinated me - my windcheater painting days always saw me drawn to faces. I somehow felt a real 'connection' as I painted them - layer upon layer of paint would reveal the character... I digress... Back to the plate..."

I have thought about lots of applications in the way of themes - but I keep coming back to the face one... We will see what transpires - given that tomorrow night may see different things again happening in my life - who knows...

That face on a plate rings a bell....

If I ever get down there again I will bring my camera.

But you could always put sections of your bag on the scanner - and we get to see the whole a little later. That would be fun, imagining the bag from clues.

Hi, don't worry (I know you're not really worried as you're not letting it put you off) about the digi camera. Belle doesn't have one either & is going to scan her pictures. Also I think the main point of the flickr album is the finished photo so a film camers would be fine. The as-you-go-along photos are great tho' aren't they?

Now you've got me musing on faces again! Glad I gave you a nudge :)
