melting away

Well !!! Its just so hot here 44 c or for you overseas girls 112 deg I’m melting, but the art must go on I say.
I have been work on a book Im teaching for a group of girls who are coming to my house in a couple of weeks.
I have enjoyed doing this project.
Don’t worry girls the moth is coming soon for those of you that follow my blog. I just have been busy working on this class.
We will be working with texture goodies alcohol inks, and ageing (which by the way I do really well just look at my face LOL) .
These are only a couple of pages you have to do the class to see the rest mean arent I.
I have just created these frames for the book and I’m going to be selling them, you can email me if you’re interested I will be putting them on my etsy in a couple of weeks.
Well everyone keep cool or warm where ever you live

This frame Im selling soon

Kim Palmer said...

Oh dear, is drool from the corner of one's mouth a bad look? These are lovely Jen. Wishing I had a 1/4 of the talent you have in your little finger! Isn't the weather there appalling! I won't ruin your day and tell you how lovely Noosa is today, suffice to say sooo much cooler then your yucky stuff. Here's hoping for a break in your weather soon, think cool thoughts!

Sam Marshall said...

This looks like a fantastic class- you're work is amazing!!!

Hi Jen ... greetings from chilly scotland! 44 degrees (I wish lol).I am so envious of those who can participate in your classes, more beautiful art work ... they sure are in for a treat:)

Sarah said...

Oh so wish I could take your class Jen your work is amazing. big hugs x x

Inka said...

Oh my gosh this are soooo unbelievable! I too wish I could take your class .. gosh just to be able to watch you work would be amazing! These are just the look I wanted for the book I showed you too. If you don’t mind I might add some old picture frames and take advantage of your inspiration. I still have not gone any further because I was stuck for ideas : / But maybe now I will get to it ….lol.

Sue said...

How I WISH I was coming to that class!!

Ro Bruhn said...

Glad you too are able to teach from home Jen, it's really great.
How long can we put up with this weather? We're getting a cool change, it's going to drop to 35c, they must be joking, although it probably will feel cool after this week.

Sarah said...

Beautiful Jen, I wish I was allowed to come and play..LOL Apparently the cool change is coming... Winter is only another 4 months away...LOL

azirca said...

OMG! those temperatures are insane!
I would be a total mess in that heat, I really feel for you guys.

Here's to your art classes, I know that they will be fabulous! Wish I could come, even if there wasn't the slight problem of geographic location, it's faaar too hot at your house!

Love your frames, they will be snapped up on your Etsy store, I'm sure.
Stay cool!

Joanne said...

Well where do we sign up Jen???

Gretz said...

Looks like another fantastic class. Those girls are very lucky!

Hope poor audwee and fleur haven't melted!

Penelope said...

I'm sitting here drenched in sweat (such a lovely visual) waiting for the cool change to come through. The A/C is dying, the cats are dying...I'm long past dead!

I'd love to come to one of your classes one day, I think you'd teach things I'm too scared to approach on my own!

Kim Logan said...

Really beautiful Jen.

Vintage Papers said...

this is just stunning! I wish that I could come take your class and enjoy the heat (it's cold and snowing here)! Have a great weekend!

Amber Dawn Inventive Soul said...

When Ro told me how hot it was down there this week I couldn't believe it!
Have you felt the FREEZING icey air I've been fanning over to Ro???


Jen, I sent you an invite for the summer Brooch exchange.
Did you get it?

I'm on the hunt for good designers!
Linda is joining in.
Do you think you might like to play?
Crystal N. is also joining us!

Let me know!


Tumble Fish Studio said...

I come visit and I just drool. Drool I tell you! It's gross! (Not your blog, the drool.) You have such an original style and your work is so top shelf, so finished and flawless. If you aren't already, you would be a great illustrator. YOU are inspiring to ME!

I don't know why you can't comment on my blog. That is so weird - you're the first I've had tell me that. Hmmmm. Will have to investigate. Thank you for the sweet and caring email though - that was more special than a comment anyway!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

lindacreates said...

Gorgeous work Jen! Your students are so fortunate. I wish I was there to take your class. I love your frames.

Julie van Oosten said...

Well you have had it really hot over there Jen. I know what it's like to be in a toaster oven! Great work for the heatwave!

Diana Cohen said...

How beautiful!!! Do you do any classes over the internet?

We have endless snow here.

Jo Wholohan said...

Jacky said...

This looks amazing Jen! Looks like a great class.

Jacky xox

Debbi Baker said...

Now this looks like a fantastic class! Pity I am so far away but at least I get to see you in 5 weeks!! Yah!! PS The frames look terrific too.

Leslie said...

Oh how fun does this look!

Funny that you're melting. I wish my driveway would . . . it's like an ice skating rink at the top, and I'm afraid it might stay in that condition until spring! We're expecting more snow tonight!

Audrey said...

Love what you are up to girl, always love it. :0)
Me thinks you need to come to the west for some play time.
Stay cool,,, if you can

Unknown said...

Best to you,

Hi Jen

I am sure the gals who are going to do your class will love it (think I might know who some of them are!).

You do beautiful work and I am sure you are a wonderful teacher too.

Look forward to seeing you at the retreat.
