Leafy Ring Dishes | Art Elements

I almost don't remember when I last played in the monthly challenges hosted by the Art Elements team. Challenge host for this month, Caroline, chose the theme Foliage, and I was sure I wouldn't find much time for creativity this month either. Then somehow, in the eleventh hour, I did find an opportunity to play… Continue reading Leafy Ring Dishes | Art Elements

A Shadowbox Begins

Wow, did this month fly by or what! It feels like only yesterday that I thought the Art Elements theme of the month, Repurposing, was perfect for a project that I'd been thinking of, and it's already reveal time. Many thanks to Lesley Watt for hosting this theme, since it turned out to be the… Continue reading A Shadowbox Begins

Art Journal: Birds of Prey | AE Challenge

I'll admit, when Cathy came up with Birds of Prey as the theme for this month's Art Elements Challenge, all I could think of was making owl polymer clay beads and use them as earrings.

At first, I thought this was perfect to try out gel prints with a recently accidentally bought gelli plate (we found we'd ordered a round one instead of a square one.) But I still have hit-or-miss… Continue reading Sweet Dreams Earrings

Elegant White Earrings

It's time for yet another reveal at Art Elements, and this month, Claire Fabian has thought of 'White' as the theme. I ran through my ever-growing to-do list of projects, wondering if white could be the star in any of them. In the end, as it happens more often than not, I made a brand… Continue reading Elegant White Earrings

Image Transfer: Coasters

I've not participated in challenges lately due to my creativity having become sluggish, but this month's theme at Art Elements - Stars by Laney Mead, brought forth some tiny sparks in my right brain. 🙂 By the time I thought of joining, I'd already created some Diwali gel prints using the only stencil in our… Continue reading Image Transfer: Coasters

Swirly Pendant | Art Elements Challenge

I'd thought I would have loads of inspired ideas for the Art Elements 'Swirl' theme, but I found myself continually revolving around only one concept - swirled polymer clay lentil beads. However, I couldn't really think of anything much different from a couple of lentil bead buttons I'd made a long time ago, so it… Continue reading Swirly Pendant | Art Elements Challenge
