I decide that as I'm turning the big 60 one day this coming week, I should have a giveaway to celebrate. I'm not sure how I feel about turning sixty, it makes me realize there are so many things I still have to create, so I need to be around, functioning normally for at least another thirty years.
The giveaway consists of some of my decorated papers and laser prints of my work, a hand carved stamp, beads, fabric, ribbons, paper napkins, a collection of things that I use in my work.
If you want to be in the draw just leave a comment and I'll get my dear husband to select the winner on the 19th of April.
In the mean time here's some photos of what I've been up to this week, as well as working on some jewellery. This paper is a piece that I made after watching Anne Bagby's dvd. Anne's work is amazing. She also carves her own stamps and makes the most magnificent papers for her collages. I now have to work out a way that I can use her techniques without actually copying what she does.
These are more pages from my DJ journal. They rabbit in the 'blue' page was part of a postcard that DJ gave us in the class. The paper it's attached to is actually a tea bag that I stamped with the base of a biscuit container to give me the blue circles.
The last two photos are backgrounds waiting for attention.
