This is the new home of my fibres and sari silks. I have strung them from an old metal film reel that my lovely son-in-law found for me.
The ribbon reels are now housed on an old skirt, pants, tie rack, not sure what it is. I've had it for years and new it would come in handy for something one day.
Tonight was the first time I've done any art all week. I made some 'leather look' paper above and did some more gelatine printing below. I'll be putting together some paper and fabric kits in the new year to add to my etsy store. These can be made into small journals or used for collage and card making.
I'm going to over print this one as it's a little stark.
I'd like to thank you all so much for your lovely, encouraging words re my new career. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time now. I'm really looking forward to going to my studio each day rather than all of the travelling I've been doing over the past twenty years.
I'd like to wish you all seasons greetings and I hope you all have a very creative and happy 2011.
