I say! Has it really been that long. Forgive my inescapable ability to blog with any kind of regularity and take comfort in the fact that I bring you not one but two beach based projects to continue the summer holiday feeling.
The first is a new garden fetish [*ahem* not the 'behind closed doors' kind of fetish]. The kind that is made up of numerous pieces of flotsam and jetsam acquired on one of the many beach combing trips where it is customary to find a piece of string and then thread as many items with holes onto the said piece of string. Or collect bits of stick. Whichever you fancy.
On a recent forage through my garden shed I discovered a bag of unused sticks and instead of continuing to sort the shed I had a Derek Jarman inspired moment [which come with alarming regularity when I'm in my plantless garden] and created my latest plant replacement sculpture.
As you can see - made with bits; including a dolls arm, an amp-meter, a shell and a bicycle light. This now accompanies fetish number one:
Again made with beachy flotsam and jetsam.
The second beachy project I wanted to share was a mini book commemorating my 30th birthday; which, was only in June so I may be lackadaisical with my blogging but at least my mini books are kind of up to date!
I used *best* with abandon in this project cutting 12"x12" willy nilly, sticking stickers and rubbing rub ons like you would not believe. I even used my favourite set of travel tags bought in the USA in about, *ahem* 2003.
The tabbed book is Kaiser craft and the papers and stickers Creative Imaginations.
Thanks for dropping by, I hope you enjoyed our little jaunt to the seaside even if it didn't involve an ice cream and I promise to try and not leave it so long next time.
