I have to tell you about Creative Textures which are video online classes and they are all about,well, its all in the name lol, creative textures.... They are video recorded classes for you to do whenever if ever you choose. They are given by 2 wonderful artists who are informative and fun to watch, they also share a lot of secrets on the forum and interact with all who wish to take part. There is no time limit or commitment to these classes. Here is a picture I did after watching several of the videos, they are so inspiring I have several more ready to finish. I had initially painted this various colours of oranges and reds but although they were 'my colours' they were too much for this. I'm finally happy with it, it has been overpainted so many times that I should just varnish it now so I can't put any more layers on it lol. Hope you like it :0)))

Creative Weekend

Hi folks
Back again with another bag - I know I promised I wouldn't but they are kinda addictive lol. Audrey came to stay the weekend and we played non stop with fabrics, wire, silk paper, procion dyes etc etc. We enjoyed every moment learning from each other and topped it off with a nice walk on the beach thrown in for good measure. Here are some piccies I promised.......

Its springtime

Hi folks, the sun is shining and there are blue skies here at the moment. I hope wherever you are that the sunshine lifts your mood like it has mine. I thought I might show you a few of the things that I made over the past week. I do keep busy almost daily as I do my City and Guilds with Linda Kemshall but I sometimes like to dabble into other things just for me too. I made a bag last weekend and some jewellery for a night out and also took part in a workshop yesterday and made another one (I seem to have made a lot of bags when I think of it, must dig out the rest of them). I have also shown a paper collage which I did as part of my C&G coursework, I had fun doing this using tissue paper, paint and oil pastels. Thanks for dropping by and leaving your comments.
