Brooch Swap Completed - "The Daydreamer".

Well here I have it, finally, my finished effort for the brooch swap - "The Daydreamer"-  so called because I still have the Surrealists on my mind from last terms study and thoughts of the unconscious mind! I hope my Swapee likes it! Mailed right on the deadline, started 3 days before that once I had my essay and other work out of the way. It's the first brooch I've ever made and I really, really enjoyed it - I'd like to make more but I think I need that little bit of pressure to  get things done (unfortunately). She's made out of mostly recycled materials too. There's a couple of process shots below....
I'm off now to have a look at everybody else's efforts. I've resisted until now in case I got intimidated and stressed about not having started!!!

This brooch is amazing. It reminds me of the ones Anna of Able & Game used to do. I'm gonna be all over your blog (in a good way)!

(You've got your comments set so I can't send a reply email.)

Here's some of the ones Anna of Able & Game used to do, but she stopped over a year ago:
She used to sell them in cards with little bios of the 'ladies'. I always wanted one but didn't get one before they went off the market!
I might have to try to wheedle one out of you for love or money.
wow- I love it so beautiful

Wow - Jo you have been so busy and so fabulously creative. I have been so busy and wish I had more time. Remember that Orange skirt with the doily? Fancy swapping it for a one of your cards?

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!

Robyn Lea — Bohemian Living.

Just as I decide to commit to a more minimalist way of living I discover Robyn Lea's gorgeous book Bohemian Living and I just don't stand a chance. The showcasing of 20 artists and their homes —Australian and International — plus their art and there I am, back again, craving colour, clutter and limitless creativity.

Are Ears The New Black?

Hooray! It appears girls with sticky outy ears can now come out of hiding. If the above photos in this months British Vogue are anything to go by the long wait is over. No need to be shy anymore. Such Good News (not personally you understand...I'm just pleased for those poor unfortunate girls who now can take their hats and headbands's nothing to me...).
