Looking back thru the recent pictures of my work, it seems I am a little obsessed with the octopus!
One of the things I love about being an artist is getting a design idea and working it into as many different pieces and mediums as possible.
It all started with these simple octopus on a barrel pendants.
Which then led to putting an octopus on one of my glass buttons.
Then along came the hand painted silk pillow.
The inspiration then came to do more with the octopus charm, so I made simple, round beads to match a charm and created a necklace on sterling silver chain.
My latest completed project as been a journal cover, but this won’t be the last octopus you see from me. The ideas are flowing now. The biggest decision is which idea to work on next!
I used one of my glass buttons as a closure on this journal cover.
It’s the legs on these guys that I love so much. So much fun to work with and twirl around into a design.
The journal covers fit a Mead Composition Book, so when your journal is full you can replace it with another Composition Book. They wash really well also, so don’t worry about getting it dirty!
Can anyone guess where the octopus will appear next?
Happy Hump Day! Let your creative juices flow this week!
