It's been a while......

....around FOUR months to be exact. Don't know why, I guess life got in the way. Some illness, some home refurbishment, lots of socialising, and many workshops. For instance I did four workshops with my friend Noela Mills.

1- Bookmaking

My first efforts

2- Monoprinting and Chine Colle

3- Repurposed Jewellery

4 - Brush making and mark-making

 After that I did another online workshop with Carla Sonheim...such fun ! 

Imaginary Creatures 2:

 So, I haven't exactly been least not all of the time.   It's nice to be back.


  1. Lucky you, love those brushes, actually I do love what you do.

  2. Beautiful little books and your jewelry looks fabulous! I'm looking forward to a creative New Year and hope you have one as well!

  3. SO god to hear from you Jo!! I knew you just had to be busy living the creative life and so you have! Love all your examples here. I have been contemplating the Carla Sonheim class for a long time:)Oh, and I LOVE the brushes!

  4. Your creative ventures are all so fascinating.
    You are an artist with many talents Jo!

  5. Wow - Jo a very creative finish to a fine year - wow - love your brushes!!

  6. Well you sure were busy in those 4 months, love your discovery of new things, we need to keep learning and incorporating vibrancy into our work mix don't we. xox

  7. You and me both have been away from blogging. Glad to see you here again and I have to say I'm a bit envious of your classes with Noela! I love her work and follow her blog. Your repurposed jewelry looks amazing and speaks to me as a fun exercise. I have lots of bits and pieces of broken or jewelry I'm tired of that might suit this exercise. Thanks for sharing what you've been up to and Happy New Year.

  8. I'm even later than most who visited. Seems it takes me awhile to wake up to the fact that you have posted.

    I'm in awe of the classes you took. Those books are fantastic. Of course, I really enjoyed the Chine Colle. Did you use a press? You got some wonderful results. The jewelry you created was fun, too. Although I don't wear jewelry, I certainly appreciate well designed pieces. Made from repurposed pieces always makes me smile, too. And of course those brushes looked fun to make, and the piece you created with them is very YOU!!

    I hope you had a fantastic new year, and I hope 2016 brings good health, happiness, and lots of great art.

  9. Hi! I've been absent from blogging for about the same time. You have been wonderfully creative during your absence. Oh my, that jewelry is exquisite; something I haven't tried my hand at (or book making). If we could only get 26 hour days or 8 day weeks, maybe......

  10. Jo,
    I absolutely love the piece you created with the brushes you made!! how wonderfully versatile you have been! Look at all of the fun classes you have been taking and the beautiful art you have been making!

    Welcome back!!

  11. In this manner my friend Wesley Virgin's biography begins in this SHOCKING and controversial VIDEO.

    Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he found hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the CIA and others used to obtain anything they want.

    As it turns out, these are the same tactics lots of celebrities (especially those who "became famous out of nowhere") and the greatest business people used to become rich and successful.

    You've heard that you utilize only 10% of your brain.

    That's really because the majority of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Perhaps this expression has even taken place INSIDE your own mind... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's mind about seven years back, while riding an unlicensed, beat-up bucket of a car with a suspended driver's license and $3 on his debit card.

    "I'm so fed up with going through life payroll to payroll! When will I finally make it?"

    You've been a part of those those questions, ain't it so?

    Your success story is going to happen. Go and take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.

  13. This way my acquaintance Wesley Virgin's biography starts in this shocking and controversial video.

    You see, Wesley was in the military-and shortly after leaving-he discovered hidden, "MIND CONTROL" secrets that the CIA and others used to get everything they want.

    As it turns out, these are the same SECRETS many famous people (especially those who "became famous out of nowhere") and elite business people used to become wealthy and successful.

    You probably know how you only use 10% of your brain.

    That's really because the majority of your brain's power is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Maybe this expression has even occurred IN YOUR own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head about seven years back, while riding an unregistered, beat-up bucket of a car with a suspended license and with $3.20 on his bank card.

    "I'm so fed up with living check to check! Why can't I become successful?"

    You've taken part in those questions, ain't it so?

    Your own success story is waiting to happen. You need to start believing in YOURSELF.
