Northcote Community Gardens by the lovely people at Melbourne Rooftop Honey. They are elegant little fellows and let me stick my camera into their faces with only a touch of annoyance. I intoduced myself and we had a chat and they seemed to tolerate me. To switch topics completely...on my way to the gardens I spotted this new bit of street art and it delighted me.

Sketchbook Project 2012 run by the New York based Arthouse Co-op. Now I just need to fill it up and send it back to them before the end of January next year. I was really excited to find out that all the sketchbooks will be on display here in Melbourne at the NGV next year too as a part of their tour around the world. Once they've done their travelling they are then held at the Brooklyn Art Library- cool huh? It seemed like a nice opportunity to "get something out there" considering I haven't managed to get a show happening this year, and I have even coerced Ms Kerry-Ann into doing it too!

Inkodye- a product I first spotted on How About Orange. I am delighted with the results even though I was a bit messy with the dye in my enthusiasm! I covered a stretched canvas that still had it's plastic wrap on with some kitchen paper then taped a cotton napkin to it, stretching it out as much as possible. Then I applied the Inkodye (Blue) with a large brush. The company recommends you use a foam brush and I was sure I had one but couldn't find it, so I just used a large bristle brush instead and I think a foam brush would have given a more even result. Deans Art stores here in Melbourne. I think I may be addicted to it!
