Is it really March already???

Well I haven't had the best start to 2010 having lost my brother on New Year's Day, but I am finally starting to feel ok and have been doing a little bit of art journalling and silversmithing - I will have to photograph some of it to share next post.

Meanwhile I thought I would post a pic of this artwork that I have just made for the very talented Julie. When I was home at Christmas time I raided my Mum's stash of old buttons and very much enjoyed going through them all to add some (with original threads and material still attached) to this piece for Julie. I currently have them in a fancy glass vase on my dining room table!

Wow, this is great. I want one!
I notice a lot of depth to this masterpiece too Gaye and the owl is just wonderful. Great theme.

Oh Gaye,
This is such an amazingly emotional piece. It really draws you in. Love the intense colours, and of course that little extra touch of your mum's own buttons. Julie is indeed a lucky gal.
