Judy comes to town !!







A weekend without Husbands and children. But instead, spending the weekend creating with 17 liked minded women. A dream? No, it was real. “A Judy wilkenfeld class” in Melbourne.
It was a terrific weekend a lot of fun and laughs, being told off for making to much noise in our room and that was all just two country girls Sarah and I LOL.
Judy is truly a very talented and wonderful teacher ,sharing with us; great techniques and allowing us to purchase some of her wonderful antique and vintage goodies.
My theme of my book is Nature a few picture I have used are of Charles Darwin. I haven’t finished yet but here are some pages I have completed. As most of you have noticed my blog has become very Jewelry orientated lately but this book has brought me back to my collage roots.
I will share more of the book as I finish it

Lisa Cook said...

You lucky girl! A class with Judy must be so special for those of us who enjoy using well loved "pieces left behind." That is the term I use in my artwork when describing it to others! I just saw that I do not have your blog linked to mine, so I shall do so immediately. Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Hang in there in designing your birdcage. It took me a long time to problem solve how to construct it. Take care

azirca said...

Stunning! I love the layers, textures and the collage work, everything looks amazing!

Babsarella said...

In a word...WOW! Each and every collage is jaw droppin gorgeous. All the vintage elements are so beautifully combined into such amazing compositions. LOVE THEM!!!

Inka said...

OMGosh what a wonderful array of beautiful art! It is not just the assortment of elements but the talent to arrange them where the eye can take in one part and then naturally progresses to the next until you have been able to consume the entire piece. A showcase of skill from the talented lady behind it!
