Upcoming classes

I'm teaching a class tomorrow morning at Kraft Crazy in Tidworth called Inky ideas - some more techniques using distress and alcohol inks.  I haven't got the samples here to show but I do have those ready for my class on 27th February which is about memory capsules. Here are the projects we will be making:

The smallest frame is actually a little (2 inch square) accordion book and here is the inside:

And finally back at the beginning of December I went to a class at Rumpelstiltskin in Broadwindsor and Tania gave me a cigar box to decorate.  I didn't finish it at the workshop but finally got it done this week (you can tell I've had a week off work!) and here it is:

It's holding my metal moulding tools.
If only I didn't have to go back to work on Monday I might get some more half completed projects done.  Ah well.


My daughter and I were inspired by Linda's art dolls on her blog Eclectic Visions of an Altered Journey.  I've linked to just the latest one but if you scroll further back you will find more.  So we decided to produce versions of our own.  We used an old Barbie (knew she'd been kept for a reason!) and some Mold n Pour to make a mold of a face and produced it in fimo. The body is chipboard and we've added Stewart Gill paint, stencils, flowers, skeleton leaves and trims.  My daughter drew the shaped paper templates and as is fitting her two are tall and slim whereas mine is rather shorter and squatter.  Here's mine:

And here are my daughters':

Thanks to Linda for the inspiration!
