petraholain #fromthecuttingroomfloor as asked to share by the lovely and super talented @miss_ness_tay so long ago she may not even remember it! I thought the tag was a great excuse to revisit my holiday photos and maybe do a flipagram or at least a little collage so hence the delay.. Talk about turning a simple tag into a massive job (when none of these photos are in my phone anymore, but in dropbox and there's hundreds of them!) Anyway, it coincided with a very busy time so today I decided to post just one photo, like I should have done in a first place and play with the rest of the photos later, when I have more time. I picked this shot because the colours in this photo from Murano seem to echo the tones in the painting by Waldemar Kolbusz I posted recently. Thank you for the tag Vanessa! 3w

petraholain So much fun, playing with this at the #poeticcollage workshop with @karina_jean_sharpe yesterday! I was trying to figure out how to finish my collage (and ran out of time, was I chatting too much?!) There was (is) a word 'esign' at the top with the letter 'D' chopped off and I wasn't quite sure how to deal with it. And then this morning I found a message from @gisellebongiorno suggesting that the girl is staring at 'esign' , maybe because she allready caught the 'D'. I thought that was pretty brilliant and had one of those 'why didn't I think of that' moments. But then when I went to take a photo, the composition and placement of the word was really bothering me, so I decided to cover it. #whenidoubtaddflowers :)) So she's not catching 'Design' or 'esign'. Maybe she's catching inspiration, trying to turn it into something that's her own. 1mon

petraholain The lovely @ondioco asked me #widn Well, after a first week back at work and a very busy weekend, I finally got a chance to catch my breath today. After a morning yoga class, I tried to get little bit organised and all my craft table sorted. There are few projects waiting to be started. (And few that were started long time ago and are waiting to be finished!) Would you like to share #widn @austrahlee ? Only if you feel like it Lauren :) 2mon
  •   petraholain Thank you Tina! And yes I made them, they're just femo, but I've been obsessed with ceramics lately and I'm considering doing some pottery classes. @cone11ceramics do some at the Abbotsford Convent. One of many things on my list! 2mon
  •   petraholain Forgot to tag @ondioco ^ 2mon
  •   ondioco I forgot to like Petra ......I'm loving ceramics too .....I recently did a porcelain jewellery workshop with Prue Venables at Slow Clay (Collingwood ) ......loved working with the medium - incredibly therapeutic xx 2mon
  •   cone11ceramics Would love to have you. Can also highly recommend @slowclaycentre Prue is a pottery legend!! 2mon
  •   petraholain I have no idea how hard it is, @ondioco but when ever I am on Pinterest, I seemed to just pin one picture if ceramic bowl after another. I love the shapes, the colours, the textures.. So it dawned on me just recently, that I would love to learn pottery. Porcelain jewellery workshop sounds good too! I love making the beads! 2mon
  •   petraholain Thank you @cone11ceramics Your classes are for complete beginners, aren't they? Because that's what I am! :)) 2mon
  •   albeliarchitecture Looks great 2mon
