New experiments!






I was so excited today as my new supplies arrived. I wasn't sure how they'd go as sometimes it's hard to tell when you order things over the net but I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived and I even managed to put a couple of things together this evening. It's so cool using the Japanese paper that I picked up while we were in Japan! I've got so much of it that it'll no doubt be popping up in all sorts of my art work.

These two pendants were made using oval acrylic cabochans that really magnify the image, I've never used these before so I really enjoyed fiddling with it. I've got so many ideas of prints that I could use in these too so I'll no doubt be ordering more :0)

The last shot is a little snippet of my new art area. I want to get some paintings on the wall first before I give you a proper look as at the moment the walls are bare but I wanted to show you the chaos that is my desk right now. I've got so many different ideas and projects going on that I'm a bit scattered but I can't help it. I'm working on a commission for someone which involves sketching and painting etc then i've got a charcoal sketch that I did for this weeks illustration Friday but I need to paint it first, as well as my Japanese paper and new pendants etc. I really should try working on my to do list again ;0)

oooh, those pendants are scrumptious! Japanese paper is gorgeous! I use it in my art alot, but alas, didn't have the joy of picking it up in Japan like you, I had to go the boring route of getting it from a local shop :-)
