Helloo strangers

Hi everyone,

Apologies for my blogging tardiness, things have been really hectic this past month...

You will all be pleased to know that my art mojo is back after a great weekend away at Shoreham on camp! I am absolutely exhausted as a result of little sleep, but the guilt of not having posted for so long is forcing me to the computer, especially as I now have something to blog about....

The mojo had slowed down (left the building really) whilst doing the collaborative book for ArtyOz - probably because of the sheer number of pages required (31) and the repetitive nature of doing it. But they look really good - and are ready to be dropped off to Teresa, so here's a sneak peak:
But more of Shoreham. I was PROLIFIC this year, and have a serious amount of stuff going postal over the next couple of days! I have done a set of "twinchies" for ArtyOz... twinchies being two-inch squares. A challenging requirement of black, white, orange and 1 other colour... I have gone with PINK! (man, I was so far out of my comfort zone with this one!). Here they are:
Excitingly (for me anyway - there was a happy dance involved) I have completed my swap obligations for PaperArts for August AND September (yay, yay, yay). So here is the August caught in crystal ATC:
and the August mini hinge book. Outside:
and inside.
It worked so well that Lesley has a asked to teach it at Little Bits in Keysborough. A paid teaching gig at last!

The September PaperArts project I completed was the pages for a Gothic Arch Screen. I did it in Verdigris colours with burgandy highlights... and I think it looks really good!

So that's it from me for today... I am going to lie down! Will speak to you all later...

Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend! All of your work turned out wonderful (as usual) - welcome to the Little Bits team! I'm sure you'll be a hit.
