The First Post

Well here goes with my first post....
I had decided to enter the November challenge on the Graphicus blog to make something with a resist technique and/or metallic colour theme. Then I read the instructions and discovered I'd need somewhere to post a picture of my entry, hence this blog. Needless to say it has taken me ages to get to grips with creating a blog - I've spent far too long playing with the layout and colour options in Blogger - and so missed the challenge deadline and never even finished anything to enter.

My namesake at The Kathryn Wheel has recently posted about making an Art Calendar. I think I'll start one for 2010 so hopefully I'll have something to share soon. I've just to tidy the mess in the kitchen left from making 12 gifts for a Twelve Days of Christmas swap before I can start. We're opening the presents we swapped one per day from 12th so I'll have to keep them secret until Christmas as I don't know what day everyone will open my gifts.
So I've got something to show meanwhile here are my first attempts from a couple of years back at altered book pages for round robins run through the sadly now defunct AlterNatives group on Yahoo, with apologies for the poor quality of the scans (digital photos are something else I need to learn how to do)...

A page for a green themed book.

And a couple for alphabet themed books:


  1. Hello Kate,

    I too am taking part in Kate's challenge and thought I'd pop in and say 'hi'. It should be a fun year.
    Happy Blogging.

  2. Love your work. I am doing the challenge over with Kathryn, it should be fun.

  3. Welcome to blogland!! I'm doing Kate's calendar challenge too and looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with :)
