I have enjoyed a very relaxing (but also very busy) 5 weeks and am re-energised for the new academic year. These 5 weeks have seen Christmas come and go, a year end and another one begin, friends from interstate coming to visit and stay and the past week and a bit I've managed to do some crafting too.
I've managed to get a number of projects finished as well as starting on some new ones.
In my last blog I spoke about a Mixed Media swap I'm involved in and, even though I posted a picture of the finished product as an amendment to that blog, I've decided to post the picture again. It is 8" x 10" and is on a flat canvas. The brief was to create something in Black and White with a splash of Red.
I used black and white gesso, white modelling paste as well as textured paper that I ripped and painted over. I also added a beautiful Pre-Raphaelite image. I used copic pens to add the splash of red.
I wish I made 2, one for me and one to swap...but alas I didn't and I will just have to be brave and part with it. At least I have the photos.
Here it is.
Here are some of the other projects I spent time on during the week. (most still need embellishments)
My granddaughter Isabelle and I spent time together yesterday, cooking pancakes and doing craft and this is what we did...(she is really camera shy, so I had to take this one sneaky peaks...still a nice photo).
Firstly I'll showcase Isabelle's efforts, some of these are for me, some for my husband and some for her mum.
And these are my effort...as I said...I still need to add embellishments.
So as you can see, I've (we've) been busy little beavers...
