Journeying back to Japan

This time next week:
we will be back in Japan
enjoying the time together, the history, the traditions, the natural beauty, the people, the food,
the shinkansen, the shopping, the fun, the change in climate,
most of all the adventure and travel.

Buckle Up

Interesting old found obejcts
which have been lying around out of sight
and unappreciated, 
brought to light and arranged,
hopefully, aesthetically.


Some more abandoned finery sitting beautifully in the landscape.

The Pointing Finger

"The Moving Finger" immediately sprang to mind whilst 
thinking of a title for this one but couldn't
use that because Agatha Christie
already took that title!

Not quite dark & mysterious enough to be Steampunk
but Tesla is definitely popping into my mind lately
especially since I found my beloved's
copper electrical wire stash (^o^).

Time Cog

Playing around with old bits and pieces
of metal and paper,
trying for a beaten vintage look.

Ghost Book

Anyone noticing a pattern here?
I do love a bit of text in artwork
and am having immense fun playing around 
with different ways of utilising nails and letters
in my works.

Little black book covered in Angst.
Trying for a bit of a retro feel with this one.
All brass & copper and old book pages.


Cut pages and lots and lots of lovely, wonky tacs

Mucking around with cut circles, gold leaf and copper wire.
Like a big fat worm moving from one tunnel to the next.
Perhaps I should have entitled it "As the Worm Turns".
