My studio is in it's usual state of chaos. I have an altered book workshop coming up this Sunday. I'm also working like crazy on my preparations for my up coming exhibition here. I usually have at least half a dozen projects on the go at once, that way I don't get bored.
I love the feeling of stepping into my studio after a day at work and just being able to let go. It's winter here and the last two days have been very cold, for us anyway. It's lovely and cosy in my studio at night, the curtains are closed, the heaters going and the lights are glowing, pure bliss.
This is the background to a collage I'm making. It will have my lollipop trees and crazy sheep added.
This is the first layer of some background paper that will be cut up to make a journal.
My decorated papers waiting to be turned into more collages.
My kits ready for assembling for my Sunday workshop. Each one of these has one of my carved stamps added to it.
Finally this is a collection of necklaces lined up waiting to have hand wired hooks and rings added to them.
Now back to the paint pots.
