The third theme of the Wanderlust year was "Rivers" and we started off with inspiration from the organiser: Kasia Avery (blog, Instagram). I like rivers, and water in general, and everywhere I've lived has had a river nearby, but they've never played a particularly meaningful part in my life. I never went sailing or fishing… Continue reading Wanderlust: two rivers
The fourth week of the "Faces" theme and the last of this theme's guest instructors: Anneliese Bates. I have to be honest, I'm really not that keen on this project. I was never much of a fan of dolls even as a child and this falls into that slightly creepy category. Technically the face is… Continue reading Wanderlust: spoon doll

It was fun to make because the whole… Continue reading Wanderlust: doodle dolls

I could use the excuse that 1st February (when this class went live) was also the start of the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring… Continue reading Wanderlust: portrait
Week four of Wanderlust 2019 and we're back with Kasia Avery (blog, Instagram). After having said that I don't do the whole word for the year thing, guess what this week's exercise was... I also said that even if I did "my words would be the same every year: explore, play, learn". So what word… Continue reading Wanderlust: do!
I picked up a bag of assorted Stampbord pieces on sale ages ago and they've sat in my stash unloved ever since. Then this post went by in my feed reader; I thought it looked really pretty and was inspired to have a go myself. To actually make one there and then rather than just… Continue reading Stampbord butterfly
