  • Taking the time…

    I have to admit, I’m really enjoying taking the time to be creative again. I’ve worked my way through the free workshops for the first time now, but am thinking of revisiting some of them as they were so full of inspiration that I’m sure I’ve missed some of it first time round. But I’ll share some more of what I’ve created so far.

    Urban Story

    I created these two images in response to the workshop led by Kate Crane. I love how Kate uses recycled cardboard as a canvas to create her images – she’s definitely a lady after my own heart. I’ve been using ‘junk’ in my artwork for many years now.

    Having Fun

    Rae Missigman always inspires me with her workshops, and this one was no exception. I’m not quite sure how the pages got to be so pink though cos I am definitely not a pink person normally!

    Symbols of a Dream

    I thought I was going to struggle with Andrea Schroeder‘s workshop, but the results took me by surprise. As I followed her instructions, I found pictures kept popping into my head waiting for me to add them to the page. There’s still some journalling to do, but I’ll probably add that later.

    Playing with Flowers

    Diana Trout‘s workshop is definitely one that needs to be revisited. Her enthusiasm is so infectious, and I only took in a small portion of the amazing ideas she was sharing with us. That said, I really enjoyed creating this page and am pleased with how it turned out.

    Hmmm… what shall I play with next?

    Playing Games

    I’ve been busy altering tins and making game cards for Diana Trout’s class on the 21 Secrets 2013 course.

    Game Cards - 21 Secrets 2013, Diana Trout's Class

    I took two old cough lozenge tins, sanded them and primed them with gesso, then painted them with acrylic paint. It was not a success – the paint started to flake off! So I covered the paint with tissue paper glued on with gel medium. Success! I still wasn’t happy with the way they looked, so I added several more layers of acrylic paint in different colours and another layer of gel medium. Once I was happy with the tins I created their labels using a stamped flower and a digital label. I coloured both of these using Twinkling H2O’s. I made the game cards from double-sided scrapbooking paper, then used the same stamped flower and digital label for the instructions.

    I found this class to be quite a challenge, but I’m glad I did it – I learned a lot. Thank you Diana.

    Leftover Kaleidoscope

    About a week ago I posted this blended image and said I didn’t think I was quite finished with it yet. This is why – I just turned it into a kaleidoscope! I love the colours and all the faces in the patterns. How many faces can you find? I keep losing count!
