Ipod bag

A few weeks ago I bought my first Ipod. I just needed something small to take along with me for listening to music, meditations and watching inspiring videos. Because I can't afford very expensive "the latest of the latest goodies" I bought an Ipod classic that was on discount and which has lots more space (160 Gb) on it than all the new goodies with touchscreen, wifi, etc. 

Yesterday I decided to make a small bag to protect the outside of my Ipod against being scratched. I recently found some Nepal wool which is very thick and easy to work with. So this is what I made.

I used tshirt transfer paper for the image (a detail of one of my Art Journal pages) and added some sequences to it. I'm now thinking about making another one where I don't have to take the Ipod out of the bag anymore for watching videos.

Fresco Art Journal page.

Finally finished my fresco Art Journal page for Joyce's workshop! I chose to make a mermaid again. The left page is covered with plaster of paris and the right page is just the paper in my Moleskine. I used watercolor pencils, watercolor paint and gouache.

A fresco jar

Another project for Joyce's workshop is finished! It's a fresco jar with cute little birdies I copied from Marjolein Bastin.

I'm feeling really tired at the moment. I think I need more sun!!

Another fresco.

This is my newest fresco for Joyce's workshop! It's a sample chart with 3 different kind of surfaces using plaster of paris. The first bird is made on a surface with only plaster of paris. The second bird is made on plaster of paris mixed with sand and the last one is made on plaster of paris mixed with dirt (black sand) from my garden. The birds are copies of Marjolein Bastin's work.
