Bits and bobs
I'm making a new journal out of recycled manila folders and the green heavy card folders that are used in metal filling cabinets. I've cut them to size but have to assemble them. I'm not sure if I will spiral bind them or come up with some other process. The black lacy background is actually a paper napkin, it looks so much like lace and even has a texture to it. The pink rectangle is the inside of an envelope and the Lulu/Diva 1 is a paint swatch. The flowers are cut out of my decorated paper scraps.
This necklace is made from found objects.
The close up bead is one I made from Polymer clay and an old washer. I bought some old African beads many years ago and couldn't find anymore so thought I'd have a go at making some. I was quite pleased with the results.
I cut a hole in a metal tag, then cut up an old wooden carpenter's ruler. I riveted the metal to the ruler.
Finally this is one of the pastel paintings for my exhibition, I'll have pastel and acrylic paintings in the show, it's just a case of getting them finished and framed.
I also have to thank Toni for nominating me for the Arty Pico award again. I again thank everyone for their awards.
Don't forget to visit Monica's site for the Pink Artist fabulous doll competition to support breast cancer. Thats' open until the 15th October.
