Mixed Media Art

The class I did at Fibre Arts Ballarat was Mixed Media Art Books with Jen Crossley of A Mark in Time
Jen is a fantastic teacher and the 5 day class was so much fun I wished I could stay another week.
The class was for 2 books. A cloth spined photo book I haven't finished yet. I didn't want to rush this so I just worked on the pages, this is one of those pages. 

I bought the cabinet photo from an antique shop in Ballarat, the lace and glass buttons are from my collection, the little butterfly came from one of the traders at Ballarat Fibre Forum last year and the page is from Jen.

I have nearly finished the metal covered book, I added a concertina fold section for some art work in the back. I also want to add some more embellishments to the spine. I am planning to use this as part of an exhibition I am involved in later in the year.

I also bought one of Jen's books - for no other reason than I loved it.

I can highly recommend the Ballarat Fibre Arts organized by Glenys Mann. I have been going for 4 years and love every minute of it.
