So… what’s on my desk this week? The next page of my Recycled Mini-Album.
This was my desk as I was sorting out the materials and photos for the page.
This is how far I’ve got.
There’s still a bit of tidying up to do, but I think I’ll probably leave it at that.
I’m sorry I didn’t get to visit many desks last week – in between being too busy for my own good, I had a bad week with my M.E. and spent a lot of time on the recliner, and some of the time was too poorly to be on the computer (and that’s really saying something lol!). I’ve got very behind with everything again, and when I did manage to spend time in my ARTHaven, I seemed to have lost my touch as far as design was concerned – poor composition and generally leaving me feeling pretty frustrated!
See what I mean?
The centre design, made from woven strips of multi-coloured papers from sugar wrappers, turned out quite well, but the Zentangle is a disaster so I’m going to cut it out and re-mount it.
My hubby and I went to the Devon Guild of Craftsmen Centre in Bovey Tracey the other day and I had a good look at the felt in particular – gorgeous work, and it gave me an idea of what to expect at our final felt class which was on nuno felting. This is what I did – I only managed one end of the scarf but hope to complete it sometime.
I’ve got a couple of weeks off before starting another 5-week course with the same teacher, this time on soap making. There will be more felt in February.
Later in the week I got hiiiigh on alcohol ink and made myself even more drunk on my feet than usual, and this was the result – quite satisfactory:
but then I made a card – I had to do it in a hurry because I forgot it was my friend’s birthday the next day:
I was very unhappy with the bitty, messy composition. Am I losing my touch or what??? Time I got my act together again, and hope my creative mojo isn’t on the way out, and that this is just the latest manifestation of the strange disease I suffer from!! (Decomposition? I do hope not…)
Anyway, enough drivel from Shisho (suffering from frainbog) this week – hope you all have a great creative week with lots of mojo and excellent composition. Happy WOYWW everybody.
