Extreme Creative Textile Day

We had a wonderful day at the Arc Centre and Gallery yesterday doing all sorts of nasty things to fabric! We scorched, burned, singed, rust and tea dyed, heated, distressed and frayed the fabric as a basis for our patchwork creations.

The Happiness Project 2014

I’ve been struggling with this image for a year or so, I think because I have never drawn a face as beautiful as this under the guidance of an american artist, Suzi Blu. It was the first thing I did in a new journal, so it was a shame that I felt I couldn’t continue to use the rest of the journal, until I had finished this one! Anxiety had built up about it but recently I’ve had a small operation which has made me have to slow down and rest for a few weeks. I’ve been able to think about it and decided to complete it as an autumn picture, especially when I found the beautiful quote by the British poet John Donne. It has made me feel happy, so I feel I’ve given myself the permission to carry on my journal with the Happiness project and other journalling too!
