The teen is tired

I get to play guilt free again !
So every time I switch on to Google there’s a to do list for the last three months its suggested that I finish the Washington DC and Africa books.
Today i finished the DC book.I’d already prepped a complex accordion fold but finished it of with a wrap that holds the sketch journal which I took with us.I needed to debulk the spare pages so made the teen a small black sketch book for his rucksack.The very cool clothespegs/pins were a crafty christmas gift from Norway-thanks E they are awesome


You again ?

Told you that the deadly sins was a place to play.Yesterday I just played with tissue paper and one of my favorite mediums-crayola metallic and glitter crayons.This an the head template was a little light muse.

A place to play

So I’m lucky enough to have a growing collection of arty and mixed media books.I’m also really untidy so wanted to develop a place to play in the next few months.
This is my desk try out area for 2012-the first deadly sin.Altering books is still regarded as this in my house by some..It’s not designed to go anywhere just a place to try techniques, ideas and share as the whim takes me.

I also added to my collection of books over the holidays.I finally have my own copy of Collaborative Art Journals by LL Ludwig and yesterday discovered Personal Geographies by Jill Berry.Got to doing that hand thing again !

It’s been a painful few months but I’m hoping things will continue to move on and improve.As Yaz says the only way up !

I also need to get on with exploring Surface Treatments Workshop so I’m off to play with that as well.

Tidy Space

Not quite sure how but I spent Boxing Day afternoon tidying my space and now have it fit for a New Year.
There are a couple of pieces missing from last year including my first self portrait

Part 2

More disc’s prepared for my final.
Way back it was suggested I make slinky books in necklace form.

The plan is to make two that nestle in the road to wealth and visually explore the concept of wealth.The artist statement will need to be much longer.
