On the first day of the workshop, Julie (Arkell) gave us each a little packet filled with bits of fabric, little charms and a small papier mache medallion.
That was it for me.
The little charm made from paper touched my spirit and the ideas began to flow.Here, at the bottom of the packet, is the beautiful little medallion.......sigh....
Danielle, Sue, Kate and I pulled out the glue, wire and paper and made our own versions of medallions.
We all loved how they looked drying on this wire..... and then came the painting...
This bracelet was experimental with the flowers, but the delicate insect drives me wild!
I have collected them for years.
I used to embroider them on my boyfriend's trousers....
I draw them all the time - almost on a daily basis.
These little charms are the perfect size for insects. They make me very, very happy.
I am looking forward to making more of these tiny gems.
