Zentangles The Godess within.

I haven't been blogging lately as I gave been struggling really badly with PTS. It was advised to me by my therapist that I meditate and try and do things that will really distract me. This really works because although there looks like some sense of design, there really isn't until I start seeing a face appear.
I guess in some weird kind of way I would like to wear a head dress like this and live in a world that I can create for myself.

Okay we won't try and analyse this one, but it was a wonderful meditation.  My mind races with memories so this is like doing Mandalas except that it doesn't have any set design. I think  I could get addicted.
I am also starting to get ready for my Christmas show in  October. This little picture took about  an hour and a half and I think turned out really well. Nice to use up all the scrap pewter.

Blushing Bride

Anyone who follows my blog can see that I really love flowers and the Blushing Bride is my favourite. It flowers in September and is really hard to find. They don't last long, but when you dry them after you have enjoyed the fresh flower they dry beautifully.
The Blusing Bide is the soft pink inbetween the roses.

Sea Glass Chandaliers

I haven't got much time anymore to post my own art work so every now and again I find something really special and just have to share it. A friend of mine was collecting sea glass and she posted some pictures on Facebook. One of her friends left a comment and a link to follow and these are the beautiful chandaliers made with sea glass by this amazing artist. I couldn't save some of my faves but follow the link and take a look for yourself. Riaan Chambers
