Some of you may know that apart from trees, i also have an obsession for pods...my collection is growing nicely and yesterday i spent the whole day drawing pods...I really want to begin creating sculptures...but as you may have noticed, i jump from one 'project' to another!!!! Its quite frustrating and i have a major problem with following something through to the end!! These pods have to be created...
Funnily enough, the lovely Babelfish of Crust station sent me this fantastic link yesterday as some of Jo Pond's work reminded her of mine!!! Check out the pods/cocoons!!!!

It was great reading everyones 'thank you' posts...we have a lot to be thankful for!!
This week my first group of calendar pages should reach their destinations, so i will show them here. Also, Shari's CWP ll begins...great fun!!!

Hope this week is a good one for all!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh wow. What a gorgeous drawing! And... I got your lovely calender page! You must have put so much time in it. It looks amazing (and I see some tiny pieces of familiar paper :-) Thanks, Julie!

    I LOVE those drawings.
    Yes go for it...jump from bi-dimensional to 3D. Just get some clay, fimo, molding clay, whatever and so it.
    It is interesting that I started to work on something like this on friday. We were asked to draw several objects and then we had to select part of the drawing and then remove and draw all elements composing that selection. Then we had to think and shape it into clay. Challenging and very, very interesting.
    I undestand what you mean by jumping from one projct to another. Although it is maybe important to follow something through to the end I also think things may be in stand by and them we can always get back to them.
    The important thing is to work, to be constant in that process.
    So don't worry too much about that for now.
