Some experiments I've been working on/mulling over this week. I can't seem to stop myself when it comes to adding detail. I did promise myself that I'd try to stop for the experiment but it seems (with this Wagashi series at least) that adding detail for the sake of detail can't be stopped!

The W logo I made (for a future print series) in 20 minutes from fresh herbs/sweet pea leaves in our garden. Not sure which one I prefer yet!

After having fun cutting, pasting, and layering I'm starting to believe that every day should be an experiment. :}

Will post more experiments next week...

And reading for this week...

p.s my mum thought you might like this link: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/main.jhtml?view=DETAILS&grid=A1YourView&xml=/earth/2007/11/14/scisurf114.xml
it's a surfer who drew up a theory of the universe (& it is a nice pattern.)

Yes the sweet peas look so vibrant!
I agree, every day should have some experiment or discovery; at least it is great when they do!
Hope you can experiment some more... have fun!

Yep, I so agree. Everyday really ought to be an experiment... happy working and layering and constructing.

Yep I scanned them Lil! All that parallel universe talk is kind creepy in your mum's link but I do love the pattern. :)

Hehe you're totally right Heather, experiments don't always turn out right for whatever reason. I guess the trick is to not let it bog you down when that happens!

Thanks for the encouragement Gracia. :)
