Oh, the irony, making an art journal into an art piece so them I can’t make art in it…
I can’t believe this worked! I used an old roll of Aliminium Foil hidden at the back of the kitchen cupboard to make this DIY book cover!
So easy: I layered the foil, embossed it, painted it, applied accents and other fancy stuff. Perfect and oh, so cheap DIY!
I am still in disbelief this worked!!!

This used to be the most hideous set of drawers…upcycle win!
I absolutely LOVE IKEA’S glass domes (BEGÅVNING)…although, I’m not entirely sure they envisioned them showcasing anything like this…
Knowing thyself…hmmm, if asked, how would you, truthfully (please remove your rose-tinted glasses 😎), describe yourself?
A description that would allow ‘others’ to know you; to really understand, what it means to be you?
No? I couldn’t either…because such knowledge is frustratingly elusive. This intrinsic awareness of oneself, exists just beyond our grasp.
And yet, knowing this, I embarked upon this maddening perusal, of trying to ‘know’ myself; scrutinising the darkest corners of my ID. All research, for my next artwork; the oh, so dreaded, self-portrait.
There’s nothing more satisfying then fonishong an artwork for a friend…hope she loves her!
