Time seemed to slip away and before you knew it, months slipped by without me showing up here.
Well - it's a new year now and I will try to do better!
(no promises though)
In the past couple of months I created a number of things using the floral drawings I made at the end of my 100 days of botanical bits project.
I made some teeny tiny collages with the drawings on my handmade paper.....
I used 9 of the teeny tiny collages to create this piece.
And then it became bowl making time.
I made numerous bowls using paper pulp, tea bags, paint etc.
decorated them with my floral drawings and finished them with a layer or wax.
Bowls changed to bottles or jars and the decorating continued.
For those of you that have asked about an
online course making paper pulp bowls and bottles
I am starting it next week!
I also used the floral drawings in my collage creations.
To which I added some paint
And some stitching.
Then it was jewelry making time.
I always love making earrings out of strapping metal.
I love when the metal has some wear and tear on it!
I found a bag of leather scraps in the studio that someone had gifted me many many moons ago, and I wanted to make something with the bits - and so the scraps of leather earrings and necklaces were created.
And then it was time to get ready for Christmas
- gifts were made
- goodies were made
- decorations were hung
- presents were wrapped
- and family time was had
It was lovely
The only creating I managed to do over the holiday season was a few journal pages.
This 2020 page needs some writing on yet
but that will come!
Although I hope to post here more often, as I do love my little blog - if you are looking for more updates on what I am creating,
you can follow me on instagram @kimhenkelcreations
BEST WISHES TO ALL FOR A CREATIVE 2020
