Slowly progressing




I can very slowly see the light at the end of the tunnel, still a fair way to go, but getting there. My decorated papers are finished and all cut to A4 size there are seventy two sheets altogether.
I've also managed to print out more business cards and package some of the earrings.
All of this is for the Artistic Journey retreat here in Melbourne which starts on the 15th May.





These are some of my finished (almost, they still need sealing) collage canvases, I still have a few more of these to complete.
My journals are almost done and I have the big task of turning all of the jewellery jumble in the last post into necklaces. I'm enjoying every minute of it as I can see progress on a daily basis, although my poor studio is screaming out for a tidy up again.
Oh well there's always tomorrow, or the day after.
