f Souls in the making... - Art Eye Candy

Souls in the making...

We are all 'Souls in the making'
or at least that's what I believe.

I was  recently sent this book from a friend Teresa in the US, 
it's an old book called 'Souls in the making' (all about psychology) and it's for altering, 
for making into an art journal.
I'm not really started with it yet but the title does 'speak' to me.
I think with everything that's happened over the last twelve months, and the things that are continuing to change and evolve, it's got to be true on some level.

Anyway, it got me thinking about how to use it and what to do with it...
So far, I put some pages into my Art Zine from the last post, and 
this weekend I put some bits and bobs in my latest pieces.


can you see it?

and you might have noticed that this chick has been framed too.
I found some old unwanted frames in a local thrift store and upcycled them.
They're just perfect.

This is the other one that I did,
she's already SOLD and on her way 
Down Under.

the frame is getting a little 'do'.

I'll definately look into getting more pieces framed, it just finishes them off so nicely.

This weekend,
in between being arty and other things,
I was interviewed on BBC Radio to talk about my art.
If you'd like to take a listen
(the link is only good for six days, I'm in the final hour of the show).

Talk about exciting,
it was fabulous fun.

Here's to being a 'soul in the making'.

Love these pieces. You have inspired me to get some of my work into frames to hang around our NYC apartment! :)

Hi Heidi,
oh thanks for stopping by... Yes frames are always great for 'pimpimg up' your art.

I am yet to start my altered book project. I have to find a book I don't feel guilty about gluing and/or painting on the pages ;-)

Yes that's the tricky thing... this year I decided to just 'go for it' and that my art wa good enough for any book. once I'd said that, it felt ok to start.
Good luck
