What a busy time at present. Sorry I haven't posted for awhile, I will try and improve on this situation.
I had another great workshop at home yesterday, this was the Junk Journal class, I had a lovely group of students who produced some fabulous work, they went home with a new enthusiasm for junk mail. Unfortunately Norma couldn't attend as she had a dose of the dreaded flu that's around at the moment. I hope you're on the road to recovery now Norma if you read this post.
My jewellery work table has lots of components waiting to be turned into another necklace.
I received some wonderful gifts as shown in previous posts and so decided to make a 'tree' for my studio to display them. I pruned a branch of our apple tree then covered it with very colourful fabric. It makes a great place to display them as well as cards and jewellery. This bird was from the very creative and generous Elizabeth.
The goddess doll and flower were from the lovely talented Nic and the Klimt doll from the very clever Jacky.
This lovely piece arrived on Friday from Sylvia, one of my students, it's a fabulous journal pin. Sylvia makes these and sells them on her etsy site.
This was also a gift from Samm, another lovely student. This is a brooch made from Samm's hand made felt and stitching.
Pages from my junk journal, my 'onion roof houses'.
My 'lollipop tree houses'
This is the cover and spine of the finished journal, it's the largest journal I've ever made and is not the sort that I could just slip into my hand bag, but it looks good sitting on a coffee table.
This is the junk journal class and the fabulous array of 'stuff' on the tables.
