This is closer to the real colour, I scanned these with my scanner.
I've also been making some resin elements to add to jewellery.
This one has an ad for a movie from a very old newspaper. I've added coloured thread and some solder balls to the resin. I want to incorporate one of my very old small light globes into the necklace to follow the theme of Edison.
Artist Sophie Munns is calling for people to create a post card for Open Studio Week in the Brisbane botanical gardens Queensland in July. The theme is paying 'homage to the seed'. The invitation is here. I think the only thing you need to be aware of is not to send actual seeds or vegetation as our quarantine laws are very strict. This looks like a wonderful project. Sophie has some beautiful art on all of her blogs.
On Saturday I had eight wonderful students attend my Vintage canvas workshop. I love teaching and seeing the beautiful creations evolve. The art produced by everyone was amazing as you'll see in the following slide show. I remembered to take photos of their work this time. They all certainly excelled.
