It's been a roller-coaster ride...

...like no other these last couple of weeks.  My studio is chock-a-block full of partly finished projects (what else is new, right?), from this bottle awaiting a final coat of varnish

Mermaid's Song

to a journal loosely packed with paper and ephemera additions,


a gooey layer of Kroma Crackle medium on top of a gessoed box,


some tape waiting for a Gelli printing session to be reborn as washi tape,


and a video workshop in the making.


It's no less crazy at my Puffin workbench either, where another bottle is in the works (not sure what ghoul is at play here, but there is certainly some Halloween in the air),


and a book sculpture starts to take form.

And just in case you think this has been a rather colourless post, I'll leave you with some close-ups of the bottle...



That Kroma crackle certainly looks different when it's dried and painted, right?


I hope you're having as much fun in your playroom!  If not, consider joining me this next while here in Creston - we've got some fun sessions for you here.

  1. Lots of excitement in your art and life. My life has been taken over by many strips of colored paper and glue but I am having fun! I hope it is ok to share the workshop page on FB because it is happening anyway.

  2. You've got so many wonderful projects on the go Win! The bottle looks fantastic! I saved a jar to alter ages ago and still haven't done anything to it. Your bottle has given me some ideas!

    1. I'll be watching your posts to see what you'll do with your jar. I love seeing how people take a concept and do their own unique twists!

  3. Hi Winn, this all seems very familiar. I am considering making a video though it's a new thing for me so will have to see how it goes. May need a bit of research on how to actually post it. The bottle looks interesting. Don't you find that Croma Crackle takes an age to dry! Thanks for the visit to mine and happy crafting, Angela x

    1. I hope you do start a video, Angela. It's taken me a while to sort out the steps to doing them, but I'm getting better and faster at it as I progress. And Kroma Crackle takes FOREVER to dry, but the final result is such an extraordinary one that I think it's worth it!

  7. Wow it looks like fun in your studio Win and you have some amazing projects on the go. I like Kroma too but it does take forever to dry (and then it falls off lol) Have a great weekend. Sue xx

    1. I'm with you on the Kroma - I find that if I seal it after drying with liquid medium it hangs in there nicely.
