A Review of June 2009

Unfortunately, I have been unable to do any more work with Friendly Plastic this month, after submitting my entry for the Marbling Magic Design Challenge. My time has been spent doing full-time temping work. Today is a day off but I am trying to finish two outstanding paintings for our apartment. Tomorrow, I am going in for an introductory day before starting my new, permanent job on 1st July. Once I get started in my new job, I need to make time available for continuing my 'Journey of Discovery' with Friendly Plastic.

Marbling Magic Design Challenge - entry

Yesterday, I submitted my entry for The Art of Friendly Plastic 'Marbling Magic Design Challenge'. The challenge was to design three or more pendants using various marbling techniques. The three pieces I finally submitted bore no relation to my original design ideas (some of which did not work out so well and some I was restricted by a limited amount of tools and accessories) but I felt these were reasonable attempts for a novice.

The closing date was 15th June, which was a bit of a rush, as most of this month has been taking up with 'temping' work, job interviews and negotiations. After I had submitted my entry, I found out that the deadline for the competition had been extended to the end of the month. Never mind, it is done now. I will just have to wait with curiosity to see the standard and designs of the other entrants, when they are posted for voting.
