Title: speckled brown wood fired wren & rustic blue wrenMedium: ceramic At the end of last year I had a small shopping spree after deciding that, rather than just liking people's art on Instagram, it would be nice to show my appreciation in a more practical way and actually purchase a few pieces. Nothing extravagant,… Continue reading OPA: ceramic wrens
Series: Wanderlust 2021 #15 In a change from the inspirational art journal page that Kasia usually makes to introduce a new theme, this week she demonstrated two techniques that could easily be used to create silhouettes or more detailed work. Once again she used a picture of a person to work from and, once again,… Continue reading Wanderlust: two techniques

I was vaguely aware of the existence of bleeding art tissue, but hadn't been… Continue reading Wanderlust: mini collages

It's my younger nephew's 17th birthday and, short of inspiration, I turned to my collection of things that have caught my eye while reading blogs or Twitter. Nothing specific leapt out at me, though there was a technique that used inked-up embossing folders to create a simple card and that reminded me that I haven't… Continue reading Metallic cogs
Series: Wanderlust 2021 #13 I don't know whether I was just in the wrong mood when I watched the video for this week's Wanderlust lesson, but it just ended up annoying me. I liked the technique she used to create the background and, although I don't use them in my mixed media projects, the pocket… Continue reading Wanderlust: pocket of tags
