Taking a peek in my Studio

Hi There Blogging Friends! Oh my goodness I've been busy lately. There is so many fun things to make and do that I seem to be dabbling in them all so; I thought I would give you a peek at what I have been up to.

First up; is my Mixed Media work. Our craft group is having a display for Autumn(Fall) so I created this canvas for it. I've used acrylic paints, texture paste, stamps, glimmer mist and sponged with found objects. Loved making this one.Here is a close up of my "mother bird". I used my 'Stampin' Up punch and punched her out of mulberry paper .Did you notice her little nest in the main pic? The leaves were stamped then handpainted with acrylic paints here and there.

This canvas is also for the Autumn display. I'm still working on it....background is done and I hope to get my girl finished this week. She is going to be throwing some Autumn leaves around.....Have you been tempted to lift up an armful of those gorgeous Autumn leaves and throw them in the air? I have!
and...Yes; I have been designing as well. Here is a cute softie shelf sitter. 'Happy Cat' got finished to-day.

and Yes; I have been knitting also. I fell in love with the delightful Mug Wraps that Val Pierce (UK) has just published in her book 'Knitted Mug Hugs'. Take a peek inside this fabulous little book....
Aren't they divine!! I purchased my book from our local 'Spotlight' Store here in Australia but if you want to track it down on the net; go to www.searchpress.com (the publishers) as I am sure you will find it there. Val has a range of these books called the '20 To Make Series' and all are filled with lovely little things to knit or crochet. Perfect little gift I think!

Finally; the mail has been kind to me with the sweetest tag, arriving from my swap partner from The Altered Paper Blog. As St.Patricks Day is in March, my partner Jane made this darling tag for me. I love it; as I don't have anything for St. Patricks Day. It will come out each year for display from now on. Thankyou Jane!

  4. Hi Judith,

    Here is the US we are just coming into spring. Your projects (all of them) are so very nice. I love the mixed media piece with the bird and her little nest. I thought the leaves were real ones - you did such a great job on them!

    I also love your girl and the idea of her throwing fall leaves up in the air. Very cute. I tried to knit a coffee cozy and just couldn't get it right --- yours look wonderful!

    I can see why the "Happy Cat" is happy - she's so colorful.

    Lots of great projects here. Thank you for sharing!
