Art in a Carton
The cartons are ready for sending. I left the painted outers as I showed you before but with the minor addition of interference pearl ex - to give them a lovely shimmer depending on the way you hold them. They will be filled with just three pieces of my art work - an ATC which I showed you before, a wild art angel doll and one of my silk carrier rod pocket bags: The cartons will go in the post on Tuesday - I need to get them wrapped up and I will look forward to receiving two back (I already had the third from Sue).
I had promised the wonderful ladies of the Cotswold branch that I would send them a postcard following our workshop. These went in the post on Friday. So I hope they will have received them on Saturday. My only request was that they send me one back at some point. So I am looking forward to receiving these too.Several of these have my snippety bit sandwich and sorbello stitch.
I have received the following lovely items in the post too. The lovely tag from Karen T - it is so pretty - thanks.
Whilst out the other day I purchased two magazines - I don't think I have ever paid so much for magazines before - the Fiberarts cost me £5.75 and the Craft Arts International was £8 !!!!! I purchased the Fiberarts as I am in costume making mode (for the HH course but I can't tell you about that yet - you will have to wait until July - when I will show you all the work after the final exhibition!!) I think Art to Wear may become a focus for me (??). I bought the Craft Arts International just because the photos of work inside are just so fantastic I had to have them in my studio!! It is just full to overflowing with vessels and sculpture which I found myself thinking - this could be interpreted in fibre, that could be interpreted in fibre until the whole mag was covered with sticky notes to that effect - so I took them all off and will just leave the ideas open to feed my creative soul!!
