Adrift Pages 3 and 4 Complete

After absolutely blazing through page 3,  I thought I would keep going and post pages 3 and 4 together.  And then life hit me, and it took me over a month to complete page 4.

Admittedly, this photo isn't the greatest.  The cloth is so large that I have to fold it over and over and that's what gives it this rather messy look.

I have a few closeups that I also took.  You can see a bit of a blending better in this.

Apologies for the big shadows over the right side.  But you can see the blending of the colors of the sky a bit better. Plus there is a little bit of Krenik in there, that gives the sky a hint of a shimmer. It's really pretty and I wish this photo did it justice.

I'm on to page 5 and 6 (6 is little more than a block, so really shouldn't be counted as it's own page) and then I am done the first row of this goliath!   I'm pondering taking a break at the end of each row and just doing a page of something completely different, like the Winter Owl.  I feel like I need a hefty dose of bold color after working on such muted colors.

Anyway, enjoy! Hopefully page 5 won't take me long and I will have an update for you in a couple of weeks.

  1. Congrats on surviving through page 4. I would have gone bonkers dealing with muted colors for that long. I probably would have skipped down to the page that has her hair and face. Of course anyone who'd take on a HAED project gets Kudos from me as I'm to chicken to start one.

    1. You know, they are not so bad (HaED). If anything, I think they have ruined me for other patterns, as I find Mirabilia's too easy and not challenging enough anymore.

      But these are big projects for sure. I find I just focus on the page that I'm doing and work through the project that way. This is my 3rd HaED, but it's by far my biggest. I think it will be amazing when I'm done, but it's not going to be done for a very, very long time.

    1. Thanks! They are really quite pretty. I'm surprised I'm not completely sick of the colors yet.

    1. Thanks! I'm really only now getting an idea of how unbelievably huge this will be when it's done. I'm thinking I should have maybe done the mini!

  4. Click update movie at yidio - Great movie that never lost my attention. Between the surprising twists (that I won't mention because they would be spoilers) and the intense action all through the movie I was glued to the screen. Shailene Woodley's great acting carried the movie like, in a smaller way, how Tom Hanks captivated in Cast Away. Definitely worth seeing. I would suggest see it without knowing much about the story.
