Had a bit of a break with the blog due to, of all things, a really dodgy back. After my attempts at a fitness regime, and a gentle one at that, I must have pulled something and wham!! I have got a bad back anyway, so it’s back to serious yoga and short walks. How can I do yoga with a bad back I hear you ask? It’s the only thing that I can do that doesn’t effect it. Years ago I was a temp and the job I had (for 6 months) was copy typing all day sitting on one of those awful “typists” chairs, I never had a problem before then – unfortunately it’s stayed with me to this day, it affects sitting for long periods and standing is even worse, but yoga for me is a godsend, so it’s back to what I did years ago. Anyway that’s enough of my stupid back J
In the meantime I had a go at some altered art. I took an image of the fabulous Adele and copied it (it took me 3 hours to sketch it !!!), I then applied watercolours in blue, green and red, then I pasted medium gel all over it and while it was still damp scraped away at the image, and also wrinkled the damp paper, then I applied some gesso with a sponge. I was trying to achieve an almost decayed look. What do you think ?
