Hi everyone, been to meet the jollie Stampers group. Todays group were me, Joan, Lisa, Soibhan and Roicine. The weather was atrocious at least 4" of snow so getting there was dicey. We decided to do a manikin here's mine although its unfinished but I want to keep to a black and white theme and only the first stamps I picked up. So it's ok for now but may look entirely different next next. Used,  ranger black soot on tissue paper with clear embossing powder, tattered florals and rosette dies, beads and wire. 
Bye for now.
Oh ps I love the Elizabethan feel so I am going all out next time to capture that essence

Long time no speak

Morning, can't believe I've not blogged for months, but I am mad busy at school. I just wanted to share some work I've been doing for Lifebook2013  it's a fantastic course with tam laporte . I have also enrolled on book of days with wild soul arts , another brill course with Effy wild. There are lots of brill free tutorials on both too.
Here is my fairy art mother for 's the Lifebook . The first picture show the journal I made from wild soul arts. I used the fantastic fresco paints from the wonderful Paperartsy .

This piece is about a life journey for life book.

 Lesson from Lifebook ,art doll,

 I made this sterling silver chain Maille bracelet too. I made the jump rings from silver wire then created the box weave from them . I love it. It would cost a fortune to buy because of the weight.

Here's 3 more journals ready to be filled.

Here's a whimsy for my Lifebook
