from the sketchbook - studio study

exploring a few of my studio items through the lens and with pen
inspiration everywhere, everyday

collect, assemble, cut & paste

"pause" - magazine & stitch on onion skin dyed cotton
"balance" - magazine, junk mail, printed word on paper
"mmm dinner" - map, magazine, junk mail on paper
Creating collage is my place for rest & growth. It's my place to develop new ideas, to sharpen ones skills, a place to seek understanding, a place to warm up, empty ones mind, unleash ones creativity and most importantly have fun.  

Don't wait for inspiration. It comes while one is working

oh my it was delicious

A recipe for Strawberry Meringue Cake caught my eye in the latest edition of Feast magazine. Perfect timing as I had made husband chocolate mousse so four egg whites were a waiting inspiration. The base is the meringue with crushed sweet biscuit (I used ginger-nut biscuits) and chopped nut (I used macadamia) mixed through. The top is similar consistency to that of cheesecake, a combination of cream cheese, sour cream (I used sweetened Greek yoghurt), icing sugar and vanilla. Decorated with fresh berries - simply delicious. Over the weekend we also visited a couple demolition yards looking for old screen doors to put on the chicken coupe. While out we also popped into a couple of op shops where I purchased serving plates and three bowls.
