I was making a pendant for a forum swap and couldn't stop at just one. I have been meaning to make one from some of the metal etchings I have made recently, this is my fav piece as I love how the colours of the brass changed when torched.

Old, used, rusty - and that's just me ha ha. I've made this centre piece out of old bits and pieces lying on my table, the very centre piece is an etched piece that was probably over etched but I like how delicate and old it looks, it is layered onto an old torn leather spine of a book which I love. The background under this is a rust patina over distressed paint and its then layered onto a 10x8 canvas board which started its life as something totally different too. I'm not sure if this is finished yet or just what to do with it. I think I will have to look at it for a while. TFL xx

Thank you to all of you who have been posting and viewing over the past few weeks. Life took on a role of its own and creating was just not a possibility. I hope to be back to some sort of normality over the coming days and to get back to my craft room and play some more. I have had some work done this past few weeks which I havn't shown you, they are small journals which are very addictive. I love the leather ones in particular but unfortunately I have run out of my leather samples so I wont be making more of these. This lot will be going to an art fair very soon. I thought I might get a lot more done but some day soon :-).
