My Little Kokeshi Dolls



I may have mentioned that I am having a little trouble finding my mojo again.My mind has drawn a blank recently, which is weird for me

But tonight at least I am smiling again, with a little help from photoshop

I messed around with my graphics tablet this evening, and came up with these adorable little kokeshi dolls. They always cheer me up

These ones are inspired by the digital art seen on Etsy like this one

I hope they bring a little smile to your face too :)

Dating My Hubby



Sorry for the lack of updates, I have temporarily lost my artistic mojo!

It's been an unpleasant time of late, dealing with petty family dramas.
I have no idea if my sister has had her baby yet, or whether everything is going well, with these stressful last days before giving birth.

I keep making presents for her, then not sending anything, because she does not want any contact at all.
Then, I learnt that she has been saying malicious lies about my mental health, saying I am unfit to be around people in general, especially children. I tell you, this has been really painful, and I even got advice from a legal firm about slander

Anyway, all this combined with other less dramatic downers, eroded away at my abilities to do anything artistic...which has been weird

My hubby has helped me bounce back though, yay!

We have done some amazing retail therapy together. I hadn't bought new clothes in years, so this was so much fun! I got a new trendy coat, boots, kitten heels, dresses, and tops!!

Then we have been going out lots. Now his work schedule is less hectic, I get to dress up, and go to the theatre,cinema,restaurants and galleries, and shops.

It has felt like dating again...

We've been together nearly 15 years, but this has been so blissful
I highly recommend dating your spouse again, it's very romantic!

As for the artistic side of things...its creeping back, thanks to low maintenance fun with polymer clay

Flower Power Week







These are the pictures of the latest pendant. Its a bezelled Sediment Jasper gemstone, embellished with a touch of wire sculpture too.

The weekend is going at a nice lazy pace.The hubby is on the verge of having a major headcold and is trumpeting and sneezing around the house.
Awwwh....

I've been indulging in a lot of flower themed fun this week. It started with a bit of watercolour painting, and became a full blown polymer clay explosion of sculpted flowers. See the pics below...

Polymer Clay Flowers










Hope your week was as fun as mine!

Polymer Clay Art


I came across this book today, a collection of polymer clay artists work. It looks so beautiful and awe inspiring... a lovely coffee table book (or in my case, a studio table book!)
