Head over to Julia’s blog (see link in my sidebar) to see what this wonderful mid-week blog hop is all about, where we nose about in each other’s workrooms and see what we’re all up to!
This week I’ve been continuing to work on various projects in readiness for a sale that’s coming up in our church at harvest. I’m hoping to sell several pieces, and if they don’t sell, they’ll do for Christmas presents, and I may start an Etsy store.
A while back I painted a whole lot of small floral ATCs with acrylic paints on a crackle glazed background, and I got half a dozen small frames and have just finished painting them and mounting the small pictures inside. I’ve done crackle glaze on the frames – small tins of emulsion in the background.
You can also see my Steampunk Clocks Mirror, now finished. In front of it, sitting on top of my mould-making box, is my new EasyMold Silicone Putty which arrived this morning – at last I’ve got my hands on a reasonable quantity of mould-making silicone putty at a reasonable price – Ebay, from the USA, so I’m now looking forward to getting on with some more mould-making. I’ve subsequently discovered another website (also in the USA) which sells similar stuff, a bit cheaper still, I think – and they’ve got some excellent video tutorials and other stuff on their website.
Following the fun breakfast picture last week, I thought I’d put in something I had for breakfast this morning. I peeled a perfect clementine, and as I held it up, the sun shone right through it, making it glow, which made me think it would make an interesting photo, so I shone my ARTHaven Anglepoise lamp through it, holding the camera with one hand and the clementine in the other. After a bit of photo editing in Serif PhotoPlus, I came up with this somewhat surreal result – not exactly on my workdesk but I thought you might enjoy it! After photographing it, I went back downstairs and ate it.
Happy WOYWW, everybody! Hope lots of you will come and visit me and leave comments this week – last week was a record for me – we all love comments!!
