yesterday… all the craft I managed to do in a day… :)

Having a bit of a break from sewing at the moment, but it feels nice as more and more jewellery ideas are flowing… so yes, keeping in with the creative spirit 🙂

Yesterday we had a fab creative day, made some meringues (before I could gram my camera, they were all gone, he he), first of its kind :).

Then spent some time with colors, textures, heat and plastic:

 I can see some brooches in progress… 😉

Then came some silk paper making 🙂

Maggie making her paper 🙂

This is only the first stage of making silk paper, laying out the silk fiber in two layers and the way of the fibers should cross each other on the layers. Then it gets to be covered with plastic mesh fabric, soak through with warm soapy water then soak it through with glue mixed with water. The kit and inspiration came from an artist we saw on a local expo, Stevie. Her work is so so beautiful!!! Anyway, the silk paper is drying at the moment… we made two, one in orange and warm yellowy shades as you can see on the images and another one in pinks and purples… no pics of that, but wait till they dry out 🙂

And the final craft attempt of yesterday is

well, work in progress…gona be a necklace once I finish it 🙂

In the mean time, have a look at the new necklace and earring I made combining glass beads, silver wire and ribbons.

And remember, crafting is fun, but doing it with others is the best!!!!

Have a happy weekend everyone!
