Beginnings, or Channelling Mati Rose

Mati Rose talks about the meditative power of gessoing canvas. As the curse of the clean hands continued throughout the weekend I thought it was time to try a different approach.

Hmmn, is that the stir of creativity I feel? I hope so, I'm a bit lost without it.

Hey, the Northern Craft Bonanza is on this Thursday night. I'd love to see you there.


  1. I have theories that gesso-ing canvas could be like ironing fabric (fabric, note, not ever clothes). Same swooshing, sorta.

    I'm fed up with all these geographical implications. When are you girls moving the Northern Craft Bonanza a small bit South Easterly?

  2. I'm with you... must get crafting soon. I've been so caught up in other things and miss it.

  3. I know how you feel, last week I went through a major blah mood and didn't want to make anything, yet I felt slightly crazy not making anything. I finally had enough a made a little brooch before bed. i feel better, but now my backed up craftiness wants to burst out and I feel slightly overwhelmed with everything i want and need to do...anyway ur creatively will come back and you'll be spilling with it!
