Exciting day



Made really good progress on sisters bag. All textile work machined on. Ready to put lining in. Have stitched handles. Moved onto making a fabric ATC. It has gone really well. Used a piece of fabric i made that was left over from a box i created. Then foiled and embossed it. Then used a piece of modellin paste work that i created at a workshop. I used inks, metallic wax and lustre powder to decorate it. Now i have stitched the item together. Just need to find someone to swap it with.

Have been reading loads about the found art thing today. Really keen to do this. Want loads of people to do it too. Think i might leave some when i go to Reading festival. Also found a cool webiste, thanks to the cool people at flickr, which sends out letters about creativity.

Gonna give this a go.
Also found this really interesting article about keeping an art journal:

Already thinking about what i want to make for the found art work. A painting???
Heres to another exciting day tomorrow.
When you give away a little piece of your heart, you're giving away the only thing you can give away, which, after you do, you got more left than you had before you gave some of it away.-- Don Hutson
