3D Printing



Before Christmas my husband was wanting ideas for gifts and I said I wouldn't mind one of those 3D pens so it was a big surprise when I opened a large box with 3D printer in it, it was not a pen but a printer!
But it is very hard for my little brain to learn how to design things to print. All the items here are not my designs, they are available on the web.

I put the fairy house in my miniature garden


Items are printed in a plain colour such as this brown. This is the fairy house before I painted it.

This dinosaur has three poorly's, my toddler Grandson thought it would be fun to throw him down, but it is quite delicate in places.

This is the printer if you were wondering what it looked like.

Cream Crazy Patch



I'm calling this patch cream although it includes other colours, various browns and whites.
I've used shells, parts of necklaces and wooden beads as well as 'normal' beads and sequins. I've not used patterned fabrics on this one just fabrics with different textures plus lace, ribbon, ric-rac  and cut work fabric and of course lots of embroidery





I think the mistake I may have made with this patch is sewing beads to close to the edge, I think I will have problems when I sew the seams.

Altered Book - Pages 65-74

More from the altered book Somerset Studio 2003 Art Journal Calendar. You can't tell on some pages that it is an altered book, it could be any sketchbook.
Don't know if you were expecting more than 6 pages, ie 65-74 - I'm just using the calendar pages and leaving the art pages as they were [in the book one side is art, one side calendar]





I remembered to join in with Paint Party Friday this week, go along to see more art.

Altered Book - Pages 49-62

It has been a long time since I posted pages from this book even though it has been finished for a while. Here are 8 pages, there are too many to post at one go.

The head on this character was found in a brochure,

I used an old Woman's Weekly from 1986 on this page. {saved for a pattern that was in it}

The cat was cut on my cutting machine, my design. The background is a print from one of my tablet doodles.

The weird top creature was another tablet doodle, the middle was from wallpaper [I think] and the bottom one I drew in the book.



A collage with found papers and card, watercolour paper and a handmade clay button.
