Melissa's Moly - Jan's page

My addition to Melissa's Moly was chosen because of those watery little dots Clare left me. I began the pattern and wanted to keep the local flavour Clare had started so I chose to go beach.
In the original woodblock print by Hokusai. He included Mt Fuji in the background. In mine I've put South Solitary Island and it's lighthouse. The beautiful coast at Coffs Harbour is protected by the Solitary Islands Marine Park. From Coffs we look out over these islands. It is truly beautiful.
I'm not sure how long this limited colour phase I'm going through will last. But I'm really enjoying it and I pushed myself to add just a touch of colour to the island itself. The rest is silver, white and black. Oh, and a touch of blue pencil. I will post it off on Monday to Alison.

I've finished Kerry's Travel Theme Moly and am mailing it out to Melissa tomorrow. I have a long-standing affinity for vintage large letter linen postcards and decided that it would go nicely with the theme. I am going to have the post office "stamp the stamp" on the faux postcard.

Melissa, I've outlined the rest of the US shape. I didn't know if you needed it, but if you did, it might be hard to find the right scale. It is in pencil, so you can erase it if you don't need it.

Sorry ....

...for the delay but at long last my moly entry is finished..

Not at all sure about the perspective on that saxophone, something's wrong there but I've tried to keep going with the style and the "story" started by Alison.....and I'm now the proud owner of a 0.05 micron pen. Really interested to see what happens to the mouthpiece on that saxophone!!

Right .....off now to pop it into the post!
