As you may have realized i have been rather quiet for a while,sorry you guys been quite busy!
Just before Christmas i plucked up the courage to submit some work to my local art gallery to be considered for their new year exhibition!after much cajoling lol.
wasn’t sure if my work would be good enough or fit in with the gallery standards but had nothing to loose so gave it a go!
got an email through on 13th Jan entitled “happy new year to all our exhibitors” could not believe it!
still not sunk in my work is in a gallery full of artists ahhhhhh!
got open evening on Monday 3rd Feb which is also my wedding anniversary!
exhibition is on for two months so ive been working hard to stock up some work as if my work sells i have to provide replacements.
Sorry been rather busy making pictures,thought about time i told you all about my crafty weekend last week.
My husband and i went to find the craft market,had a good look round at all the stalls there was a wide range of crafts there.Including card making,jewellry,knitting,and paintings etc but nothing like my work.
Managed to have a good chat with some wonderfully creative people got lots of ideas and good advice which is great!!
Then to top it all managed to book a stall for the next market on the 12th october. yes!! next job is to make sure i have enough pictures made.
The following day i went to a papercraft show which wasn’t as exciting as last year as there were less stalls. Although i did manage to learn decopatch which i am now using to vamp up my tatty sad looking sewing box in my spare time(not that i have very much these days) hope to be back on track this week so watch this space!!
well got a busy weekend ahead,been to craft group today.Off to local craft market tomorrow for a good mooch hoping to book in for the next one.
Get an idea of what to expect so i can prepare myself may even get some good ideas whilst i’m there will let you know how it goes.
then sunday after church i’m going to a papercraft expo which is like putting a child in a sweet shop! i will be in my element. good job i only found out about it yesterday otherwise i’d probably be breaking the bank!!
boy is it fun learning to play
Little did i know when i started doing 3d decoupage, that a couple of years down the line i could be making pictures to order for people!
And whats more be working with a couple of artists on board!
who knows where it will lead to next but at least i’m enjoying myself in the meantime.
As an experienced crafter it was my dad who first introduced me to 3d decoupage. i started off with card making then gradually progressed to pictures.
I invested in some shaping tools a foam mat and a trusty pair of tweezer sissors,the rest they say is history!
