Finding My Way (Somerset Studio Gallery)


Hello
When I was an Ambassador for RELICS & ARTIFACTS, Cat Kerr who was a previous Ambassador, came up with the idea that each Ambassador create a project featuring an R&As oyster shell and incorporate her stamps, other than those specifications, we could create any project working on any substrate, I chose a piece of driftwood.
The oyster shell obviously brought to mind the ocean which made me ponder messages in bottles, tossed into the ocean.  This set my mind thinking of how no matter the stage we are in life, there are times when we are finding our way.  I used Cat’s stamp “Finding My Way” to bring this element to my assemblage.  It could be that the message is written and tucked inside the bottle, a plea to finding the way in life or it could be viewed that the person writing the message has found contentment in that they are at peace knowing they are finding their way, a sense of wisdom washing over them as represented by the addition of the pearls, a flow of pearls of wisdom.  Another of Cat’s stamps was incorporated, a compass which I stamped onto a That’s Crafty acrylic shape.  I also used ICE Resin throughout and Tints which brought the exact notes of colour I wanted to achieve.
We each, separately mailed our projects to Cat, who would mail them to Stampington & Co. We didn’t know in what format the projects would take or which magazine would want to publish them, either as a group or individually.  It was a lovely surprise when the editor of Somerset Studio Gallery contacted me for my assemblage to appear as a Spotlight within Somerset Studio Gallery Winter issue.

  • RELICS & ARTIFACTS Coquille  (which includes the oyster shell and more) is available from That’s Crafty.

The ICE Resin simplified adhering the elements, aside from providing the appearance I wanted on all the elements.The bottle actually has contents but it didn’t trouble me that they are obscured by the treatment I gave to the outside of the bottle and by the resin paper (stamped tissue paper).It was important that this assemblage had a tactile quality to it just as the ocean does with the juxtaposition of smooth against rough, which is also symbolic of life.Fragments of vintage lace reminded me of netting and the Tints used for ICE Resin enabled me to bring colour to the oyster shell as did a dash of PaperArtsy Infusions.
This was a unique project to be part of and even though our projects did not appear side by side, it was still special to work on this project and subsequently for it to appear within Somerset Studio Gallery, a publication which I hold in high esteem.

The Ancient Woods

Hello
Today, over at the That’s Crafty blog, I found myself taking a gentle walk into The Ancient Woods where I stumbled across a cottage, where a Wise Woman spoke to me of her friends from nature who while away the hours of the day with her.
