Notes to Self

Ideas are forming. Still just notes to self, but getting there. Lots of ?

very pleased to see you are thinking about a clay cover - are you anxious about shipping clay all over the world?

What an interesting and challenging idea. I too like to make notes, heaps of them and as new ideas emerge pop some really old ones into the bin!!. Other people's notes are always intersting reading.

yeah these ideas might be just total fantasy when it come to making them but its good to get them out there. yeah postage is a worry Ida but if I really want to do it I will think of something suitable. Perhaps inlaying a slab/tablet of clay into the front cover so its supported and surrounded by card? I dont know. Got the day off worj today so will go to the studio and play.

Thans for sharing the process Abigail - the notes and sketches are a great place to start - who knows where it will lead? My notes often have lots of questions marks thru them as I ask myself questions - its nice to see others do as well! Have fun!

Love to see the process. Everyone works so differently, its fascinating.

It looks as if you work the same way as Sara - starting with form first - or have you already decided on the content?

i think form and content go hand in hand generally; but one always influences the other so if i know a certain form is right for the idea then the content will reflect it.....or the other way round! this time its fairkly balanced i think; i have an idea of content but nothings set in stone.
