We finished our circular patterns…we`re not sure entirely how we will use these maybe to create a three- dimensional card or picture…
We carried on working on our beak books….
We designed bookmarks taking inspiration from this one i found at a heritage venue….
Here is one of the designs….we`re going to get all the bookmark designs cut out of walnut…
In my role as Arts and Health Officer for Blackpool Arts Service, artist Philip Davenport has been working with my Arts for Health groups to create a beautiful book, which will include the groups` images, stories and poetry, which all link to the beautiful Blackpool archive. Friday was sooo exciting as we went to Stretford print finishers, where the books will be bound and foil block printed….
We chose the cloth we want to use….
and decided we wanted our book to look old fashioned with gold foil block lettering on the front and spine.
If you`d like to visit me you`d be very welcome too…just drop me an e-mail
I`ve been going for a few years now and usually i`m there (fairly) early and come back with lots of things….i wasn`t feeling too well….but i struggled there…. these are my finds….
I bought this for a close friend who is getting married in April, we decided her dress needed a bracelet so i`m going to change this beautiful art deco belt buckle into one.
I couldn`t resist this beautiful netting…..i think it may inspire me to make some headpieces…
I received this very exciting handmade invite to a wedding from a very close friend……..
I can`t believe how beautiful it is….it makes me feel like it`s going to be a very special wedding!
