Stretch Your Wings And Fly: Pendants (Somerset Studio)

Hello
This is another re-wind post, sharing two pendants which were published in Sept/Oct 2018 Somerset Studio, two Mixed Media pendants which had focal elements of a word (Red Lead stamp), stamped onto birch tree bark, with an application of ICE Resin.I worked with all I had to hand, including some beads which were re-cycled from broken jewellery and the stamped birch tree bark was layered onto suede which was from an old suede skirt. Packaged with re-cycled corrugated cardboard with one of my Affirmations stamped onto scrap calico.  Wings…the second pendant.You can see that this pendant is a variation on the first onewith similar style of packaging. Thank you for taking the time to visit this post.

Learning to Fly (Somerset Studio)

Hello
I am winding back the clock to the Sept/Oct 2018 issue of Somerset Studio, when at that time, I had the lovely surprise, of this submission, featured as a Spotlight.
I remember at the time, the inspiration for this project and another which I am sharing in this post, were the fabulous Greyboard Wings from That’s Crafty and their Art Shrines. With beautiful image of a young woman from Red Lead, I had the possibility of giving her wings, outsized wings which would enable me to attach chain, suspended from a tree branch.Although there is a strong nature element to this hanging shrine, it is also an Affirmation.  The shrine is trying to convey the spirit of a person, most especially when that person doesn’t see what is actually within them, almost blind to their own spirit and what they are capable of.PaperArtsy Frescos enabled me to bring a speckled appearance to the RELICS & ARTIFACTS Imperial Egg, nestling inside the Art Shrine. 
The twin to this shrine, has the message of “Fly, Soar”, almost saying to the young woman from the first shrine, you have the spirit with you, this is now time for you to fly, for you to soar.  The light catching the wing.At the time of working on the shrines, I was not conscious until setting them side by side, viewing them as twins, possibly a subconscious nod to Gemini.  Side by side, they could be viewed that it is one side of the personality, nudging the other side, supporting it, shoring it up to say you are able to achieve anything, believe in yourself.
Thank you always for the visits you make to my Blog.

Earthy Affirmations (Somerset Studio)

Hello
In the latest issue of Somerset Studio, one of the articles I have is Earthy Affirmations.
I was inspired not only by the Somerset Studio Art Call for the theme of Blush but also inspired by That’s Crafty white/greyboard Doodled Shrooms. Instead of matching them with their corresponding clear stamps, I wanted to give them a grungy, earthy appearance,pairing them with Affirmations.For each collage I worked with the same items, torn papers including stained That’s Crafty Rice Paper, layered onto eco dyed watercolour paper. Partial Affirmations appear on a stained shipping tag, with a central word taken from the Affirmation, to be layered at the base of each mushroom.Machine stitching the layers brought extra texture and interest to the collages.PaperArtsy Fresco Paints were used, swiped here and there, with my fingers, onto the panels.Corrugated cardboard, oh it is simply wonderful to work with!  I used the corrugated cardboard which comes within That’s Crafty’s Surfaces Mixed Media Paper/Card Kit. to form pockets for the collages, making one pocket larger to contain two collages.A full supply list and details of the pockets can be seen in the Somerset Studio article.
Thank you so much for your visit.
