Tuppeny sweets

A lovely treasury found this afternoon...I'm not in it, it's just lovely!

And some random studio shots...

Red scraps and lace on a book page. I'm working to incorporate my collage, textiles and jewellery into singular pieces, I feel ready for my work to evolve.

The results of said experiments, so far. This brooch will be listed on Etsy later, and the last brooch I listed lasted about half an hour, so if you want it- be quick!

Mixed media laying around- I've become attached to bleached-out snail shells, and the ocean. Possibly due to the recent trip the beach I took wherein I found sea glass, but before then I've been drawn to that real stormy, rough seaside that you get on the cliffs. Cornish seaside. Old sea captains and Cape Cod architecture. I feel a Flickr Mosaic coming on. :)

Dye bath- porcelain blue which delightfully turned out to be more of a ashen hue (or is that Cornish seaside blue!). These will be stained and over-dyed for my Yuletide collection, inspired by Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol.

It has been too long since I have visited your blog! I love all these images and the pieces you are working on. The "One thing at a time" piece is a great thing to remember. Can't wait to see what comes from the Yuletide collection!

Love the blue and the words, 'the sea was an old sorcerous', but then again, I love anything to do with the sea...
