Prayer Flag swap



Yesterday I made 4 sets of Prayer Flags for a swap on Goddess Guide Book , 2 will be flying off to USA and 1 will be staying in Australia and the 4th set will be a give away on this blog and Dotty Jeans Journal FB page.
Making these flags was such a calming & serene way to spend my afternoon, it was definately an act of active meditation. Each flag is 5 x 6 inches, hand died, embroidered in the centre with a spiraal of seed beads then hand sewn onto natural jute for hanging.
All you have to do to be in the draw for the Prayer Flags is to leave a comment on my blog and suggest my FB page to your friends. Make sure you ask your friends to mention your name when they like the page. This competition will be open until the end of October so there will be plenty of time to enter.

Supplies Me homework



I have just finished my first weeks assignment for Supplies Me with Jane Davenport. I made my journal from a tutorial by Teesha Moore, I have a short attention span so made the journal instead of having a large one to fill I will have several smaller ones. That way I won't have an anxiety attack thinking I have so many pages to fill!! Mind over matter works every time.
I have really enjoyed the process of making this first journal spread, I didn't know what my firs page would be until I woke this morning. It all came to me in my sleep, I would create a page depicting me as a butterfly emerging from the cocoon of self doubt into the world of creativity. I love metaphors, this one is perfect for me. Now I'm inspired I am off to paint the background of some more pages.

I'm excited

I have just joined Jane Davenport's Supplies Me online workshop, this is the first time I have participated on such a workshop. I have made myself an art journal using Teesha Moore's tutorial, I am so looking forward to filling the pages with beautiful art. This is going to be such a fun filled class full of great students who are so inspiring and Jane is such a great teacher.
I hope to have some pages to post in a few days of the start of my journal, because I have a short attention span I have decided to make smaller journals instead of one large one.
