Primrose Paper Arts has arranged quite a few events recently; the AGM (which is always a lot more than just the formalities), social days, Special Interest days and another get together held at a venue more in reach for some of our southern members who don’t get up to Primrose Park very often – if at all.
I took my camera along and recorded some of the art pieces our members have been working on. Here is a selection of what everyone has been doing.
Peter had all his supplies (including his guillotine!) and was making books and I was collaging tissue paper to create a sheet for a new hard-cover book.
Lou and Ang were stitching with paper yarn.
Rosemary brought her embossed handmade paper, while Annette showed us her stitched pieces that will end up as book covers. I especially liked the text hidden between the layers (close-up above).
We got the chance to flick through two of Diana’s beautiful books, and it’s not just the covers that are stunning. Here are a few of her pages. Mouth wateringly lovely.
Our southern Sydney get together had a group of us (under the careful guidance of Jill) making some amazing folded books and photos of those will be coming shortly.
Webmaster Note: Keep your eye on our up-coming blog posts as we are thrilled that Diana Brandt will be sharing some of her mark-making skills with us at our November Tips & Tricks day. Details coming soon.
