Things I have made this week

I'm not sure if it's because Ten found my feather necklace the other day or that feathers are really cool... I just can't stop painting them.

I use acrylic paints and poscas for this one. It's now up for sale at Emerald Arts and much credit goes to tafe for getting me to paint something that didn't end up having paper cranes glued to it. Brancin' out, yeeaah.

I also made a little bird cage necklace out of some lovely bird egg blue leather and a red cage.

And also, a goldfish, also on the necklace wall at EA.

Then on Wednesday night I made my bff Tenski smoked salmon sushi. So tasty when it's fresh mmm.

My first attempt at making an Artist's Trading Card (ATC) was a gnome with a red hat.

The second was a mushroom. Can't wait to get back into the studio (sat-tomorrow) to finish them. Today I clambered all over King Edward Park taking photos and making sketches for my landscape. Will do some practice watercolours then too.
Spent most of this afternoon mailing the lesson Program for the kids classes to all and sundry. Have decided that stressing never got anybody anywhere and that the only way to make these classes a success is to put my marketing hat on and get the word out there.
Wish me luck ;)
