It's officially New Year's Eve...

As we begin to prepare ourselves for 2018, I am making goals to create art as well as continue with writing. Online classes are perfect and can be done at your own pace.
So, with the 'Fabric Book' class by Kate Thompson, (previous post), I am taking Annie Hamman's, 'Creating Soulful Art with a Story' (1). Her art is beautifully soulful. It will be fun combining the two classes using mixed media. Another couple of classes that appeal are 'Lifebook 2018' and Ivy Newport's 'The Storytellers Art'.
Just click on the classes above to take you directly to the websites. 
I have also signed up for Art Therapy course ~ HERE
Looking at the next year, I'm wondering about venturing into this area for work. We'll see, meanwhile I'll be having fun exploring art and words. Yay!

Material Desire...

AMETHYST PEN

Cradled by an amethyst geode, this Haute Creation writing instrument in amethyst and gold is hand-carved from a single Brazilian amethyst using ancient lapidary techniques to preserve the unique personality of the precious stone.

Fabric Book Art with VENETIAN PLASTER

Hi everyone 😁
So 2018 is almost here and I've decided to take a few online art courses. Yay! I'm still going to be revising book two 'Awake in Purple Dreams' but needed to let the muse play with colour and texture too. There are quite a few great classes available (link HERE) but this one, in particular, lured me in as I would like to create wall panels from drop cloth (dust sheets), even Calico could be used. I'm sooo excited! 



Below are a few of Kate's videos ~

Venetian Plaster



 

Jennifer Lanne's art inspires me. It's where I got the idea for combining plaster to drop cloth. I love the vintage feel and prefer the lighter colours. Beautiful work.

I think the unicorn will be my first attempt at a wall hanging. It will almost have the feel of the story I want to write 'The Paper Unicorn'. Perhaps, I can use text from notebooks to place onto the fabric.
