Just a quick post to update you on my persuits........and a couple of Dragonflies !

Hi Folks, still very hot here in the UK ! ! !  I've been playing around with some experimental stuff, take a look.........................

This beauty has been coloured with watercolour pencils, his body
is made up of bullion stitches......love the coloured pencil effect !


much more to do on this  !


Playing with colours and textures.......and this is what happened !

Fabric art, and Roast beef ...A.perfect Sunday and maybe another secret revealed !

Hi All,Having a relaxing Sunday and playing with all my stash.......Got the sewing machine out and making a very colourful Fabric Art Journal ! This is so much fun, I've got ribbons, beads, charms , Sari waste, sequins, pearls, threads galore and more......take a look.......













Lots more to do on this piece !


This is the book that has inspired me to have a go !
I have also found a new technique for tranferring 
images from print to fabric using PVA glue and this 
is the result that I achieved...................


A superb result ! I can now embroider upon this and
really bling it up using coloured pencils, beads, glitter
etc ! !  Maybe if people show an interest in this technique
I may do a tutorial on it  ? Please do let me know  
if you would be interested in a tutorial...........
I shall continue my creative colourful and 'tasty treat'
Sunday....Blissful........., hope your Sunday is great too! !
