There is a lot of activity going on but there is not much finished.
I took these towels off the loom yesterday but now they need to be washed and hemmed.
This is another warp ready to put on the loom. It is hand dyed silk and I am going to make a kimono like top out of it.
Then there is my new mailbox, here it is with its first coat of paint. I haven't decided what I will paint on top of this yet.
Here is a sneal peak at the suitcase I am altering.
I started on the journal using the Creative Awakenings: Envisioning the Life of Your Dreams Through Art
This is the cover, you are supposed to decorate the aluminum with alcohol inks but I really didn't like how it looked so I took it off. The cover is supposed to have symbolic elements. I chose a raven and the four directions are here along with the moon, sun, stars and a spiral. I also stamped things I liked on the cover like turtles, hands and dragonfly's.
This shows the center piece a little better.
I do like how the back cover turned out too.
In the beginning of the book she asks you several questions and I am going to do journal pages on some of them. This first one was all about the past year.
This one was all about your personal and creative strengths. I thought it would be easy but found it difficult to come up with very much, I know I have more strengths so I will probably be adding to this page at a later time.
Paper Bag Journal
After countless hours trying to get a video made of my paper bag journal I went to Slide and had them do it. Its on my sidebar if you would like to look.
