Well I have begun my Heart Strings
on-line DVD workshop
under the excellent guidance of the
wonderful on-line tutoring of Diane Cook
(see my previous post below for all the details)
and, although I am travelling at a snail's pace - I have to
admit that I really am enjoying this completely
new medium whilst still getting used to
using these tiny jewellery tools
so, although, not yet finished
I have some of the decorated chains ready
to show and the sari silk ribbons sitting on the right
hand side of the tray
are almost ready to be joined with the chains
after waiting the arrival of a few more items
including the brass thimble under which
all of the strings come together.
(I must admit I am rather happy with the little nestie
with the pearl)!
In the meantime I have been putting together a few gifts
and tags so here are some of the collaged tags
(the gifts I will show a bit later!)
I have a beautiful new book cover stamp purchased locally
and it comes in two sizes - this is the smaller size of the
two which covers an oversized tag.
Then there is this one using the same stamp but a very
different image of a gypsy
with some very rich burgandy tassels
So two different versions using the same stamp
and then this one which is completely different again
using a favourite image from Dawn
Thank you so much Dawn for always making these
beautiful images available to us for use in our creations.
I love how natural she looks!
I do hope very soon I will have some completed Heart Strings
to show you!
Thank you to all my new followers for joining my blog
and to everyone who comes both often or even occasionally
to leave me inspiring comments - thank you so very much.
While you are probably sweltering in the northern hemisphere
we down south are experiencing Winter at its very best
with clear crisp white frosty green paddocks
and the most beautiful blue and clear
So lucky to be alive!!!!
Love and hugs, Suzy xxx
