Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Ooooo not long now till YCJ..



getting exciting now!


Consequently I haven't been blogging and won't be much until it's all over, but have manged to do a couple of non workshop things!


Can never resist Sian's ATC swaps cos she comes up with such great ideas, so although I haven't made any ATC's for a while I have made a couple for her 'See through swap' .... think the title is self explanatory!

'Seek' is stamped onto tissue paper and PVA'd to give it some strength and 'Lifetime Journey' is stamped onto acetate. the background to this is sprayed with 'webbing spray' which is mentioned alot on USA sites and I actually manged to find some at Ally Pally. Don't think I have the technique quite there yet but practice will make somewhere near perfect!


Also made a 'Brooch' get well card for my lovely friend Fuchsia, who is one of the kindest most generous people I know and has just had an Operation...... she's not one of the brightest though cos she didn't realise it was a brooch LOL
well thats it for a week, then I can get on with loads ofother projects that need to be done before the dreaded C word!!
