First the spikes. Once I'd stamped and stencilled on this page it felt a little spiky, much like the world feels to me at the moment. A few too many prods have meant lots of tears. Do you ever feel like that?
And the vegetables? Well, as I peeled a beetroot last night, the peel fell to the work surface and when I gathered them to throw away, they left a fabulous pattern. Hmmm, I thought, I wonder if that will work on paper? A quick trip to the art room proved that, yes, it does! I just let the peel fall on to the page. I love how there is a pattern like a fingerprint when you look closely.
And some close-ups of the spikes:
