The pieces are coming together.. The china teacups have been decorated.
The stormy sea's have been painted..
The frame... Before crackle...
After crackle..

Paper cups, stormy weather... Diorama

 Not a lot to write about at the moment, just playing with ideas..

 Not sure where this is going.
 but have a lot of ideas swirling around in my head..

'Iconic women'.. 'Female icons'...

A few weeks ago a young lady brought two of my brooches. 
She has some dexterity problems and is not able to attach them herself and she asked me if I ever made necklaces as they would be easier for her to wear.. 
So I gave it a try.. And here are the first results.. 

On Saturday I was wearing one and a young guy came up to me and said... 
'' I love that icon necklace your wearing lady''.. 

So the design name was found just that I'm not sure whether to call them 
'Iconic women' or 'Female icons'.. Decisions decisions...

Business card box...

 This week to distract me from the UK 'Brexit' vote.
I played with the idea of making a business card box
This is the finished box..
And here are a couple of photo's of the work in progress.
Just a little sad that I didn't take any earlier in the  process for you to see..
Papier mache
Recycled card, telephone directories and a lick of acrylic paint.
.. And a little gold leaf of course..
