Hi Everyone and sorry this is late !!
I’ve been well and truly getting into this mixed media lark now, I’m having so much fun trying new things, being inspired by amazing mixed media artist and well just plain having a go lol
I”ve finished off a few little tags using cardstock, gesso, paints, lots of bits and bobs, sari ribbon and yarn, mechanicals, buttons, coins, papers, silks anything and everything that I can get my hands on !! And waiting for the postman as we speak
I’ve also made a little teeny sort of a house, I’ve followed a tutorial on Luthiuns blog http://www.alteredalchemy.com/ she makes the most amazing things, originally made from copper sheet , this one is my practise one using card stock and I even made the little leather book, the whole thing is only about an inch long and it was so much fun. I’m now waiting for some copper sheets to arrive so that I can make a real one lol
i think i went a bit mad and made some little books, just in case !
Ive made another foil art journal to and im just trying to keep myself very busy
I know I’ve gone away from felting for a while but I really cant help it, I’m having a great time and learning lots, im going to try to and make some silk paper today to use
Now for some news and I wasn’t sure I was going to say anything but I decided that I would.
I was talked into taking some of my things into our local gallery, I had to sit in with their members and kind of have an interview, ( if I had have know about that I probably wouldn’t have gone,) having to show what I make and explain how its done was fairly intimidating, but once I was there I couldn’t back out ( the lady that talked me into it was there waiting for me lol So once we’d talked through everything I had to leave so they could discuss me !!!! and i’d hear from them out in a day or so for the verdict . Well as you know me I thought ok, that’s the end of that But to my surprise the president rang and said they’d wanted my things in there !!!!!! Im meeting with her again on the 1st of may and taking the mixed media pieces, (that’s what they wanted) . So now I’m quite excited and hopefully I can sell some things in their gallery. I have to add that was a huge huge huge thing for me to do but Im glad now and looking forward to seeing what comes of it .
Then I was also offered a fantastic sewing machine as a gift, I haven’t had a chance to collect it yet but I know its an awesome one coming from the lady that owns it. She has no need for it anymore and she’s more than happy for me to become the new owner, so im excited !
Do you think it was my week, yeahhhhhh and after the last few weeks we’ve had here it feels good to have some happy positive things happen
