my creative space

i've been working on packaging design for the garlands ~ they need to be tangle free, bend proof and waterproof . . .

have also been playing shop. etsy have developed a coupon/discount system which looks easy to use. i'm going to use it for black friday ~ cyber monday. this code: 'mycreativespace' {without the ' '} gets a 10% discount on all things in my shop, including originals. starting early!

happy creative space day :)
to see more/play visit kirsty.

** big thanks to emma lamb for this xx

i've found another fun way to spend my time! collecting images of beautiful work {and sharing new stuff} on tumblr. and, when my monthly internet thingy tops back up, i think it'll be a very quick way to blog ~ kind of like in between posts here. so often i see things i'd love to feature, but just don't have time, or internet power, to make a full post . . .

hope you're having a fun week {and surviving the heat if you live where it's summer!}.

i spent some time on the couch with the new paper punch today ~ might not have been the best idea after getting sore muscles fixed yesterday. but, i was very keen to see how the curvy squares would look. it's a little bit addictive!

the school art show is on tomorrow. i've donated a few prints and have no idea what to expect!

have a fun weekend :)

my creative space

going where the ideas take me this week ~ which is all over the place i guess! i'm having fun with the little pieces, they are really no threat. great for liberating ideas and trying things out.

also experimenting with triangle garlands . . .

and off to the city {in the rain} for supplies. will pop in to yours when i get back.

happy creative space day! visit kirsty for more spaces :)

my creative space

had/have lots of things i need to do on the computer ~ but ~ i felt an overwhelming need to get to the other desk!
making mini collages on wood, some with stitching. am hoping to try out another hanging idea when some supplies arrive.

fine art friday is a new movement set up by jessica torrant and sarah john afana about sharing the work of independent artists ~ i love it!

i thought i'd share some of my favourites by annamaria potamiti :)

:: i made a dress, the dress didn't make me
:: dreaming days

happy friday!

my creative space

thanks for all the great comments on the last few posts ~ it's been fun {and a bit exhausting!!}.

i've been finding a groove with the garlands. they have been fun to make ~ love the sound the needle makes chugging through the paper. this one is with blue thread. i bought a paper punch to ease up the measuring and cutting process and some new coloured threads. will keep playing . . .

have a fun + creative day. pop over to kirsty's for more creative spaces.
