If you’re interested in a Christmas Canvas Workshop .. then head on over to Emit Photography for all the details ..
We celebrated two birthdays last week … my Mum (h) and my daughter’s good friend (t) … both born on the same day!
I recently ordered some fabric from Art Candy … I love Amy Butler’s designs and the colours are gorgeous … and decided to customise some notebooks … love how they turned out! (My Mum really loved it too!)
Matthew was invited to Claudia’s party and I was so happy to make something pretty and pink.
I’ve had this mdf mirror for ages .. and it was so much fun decorating it. I used this piece as my inspiration .. and I was very happy with how it turned out.
And Claudia liked it too!
Jamie (4) was recently invited to his first birthday party. So very exciting!! His first thought was “What should we make for Tyson … how about a “t” for Tyson.”
This comment made me so happy .. and who am I to disappoint my 4 year old. So off to Spotlight to find a “T” … and I found this Papier maché letter – perfect!
My daughter Grace turned 10 last week … and I still can’t believe how quickly a decade can pass by!
It was a very exciting birthday because there are certain privileges that a 10 year girl in our family can now enjoy.
Privilege # 1 – getting ears pierced – check!
Privilege # 2 – having a mobile phone – check!
Privilege # 3 – drinking a cup of tea – check!
Privilege # 4 – slumber party – check!
Lately there has been a lot of gift giving … which means I’ve been busy in the studio …
I love giving handmade gifts … I’ve been doing it a very long time!
This fabric notebook was for my Aunt who recently celebrated her 60th birthday!
And a lovely card to go with it!
And this little canvas was for a 6 year old princess who had a wonderful disco party.
I am very excited to announce that I’m holding my very first mixed media workshop!! Next week!! Can’t wait to share some mixed media goodness!!
I wanted to sneak my first workshop in before Mother’s Day … I think it would make a lovely gift!!
The workshop will be held in my studio on the Central Coast of NSW.
Please give me a call to make a booking as there are limited seats available.
Over the Easter long weekend I was able to find some creative time … I finished this family canvas … I loved working with all the different layers …
Interweave Press had a sale recently on their downloadable videos … I have been wanting to get collage fast & furious with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer for a while now … and this was my chance. I loved it … Julie is so lovely and I love that she lives in New York City. I was inspired to start an art journal page … which I will share when it’s finished.
I also have to comment on how much I love technology … I was able to download the file and transfer it to my iPad and watch it on the couch (with headphones) while the kids watched a movie. It doesn’t get much than that!
