Butterflies!

 
Have been making a whole batch of Butterfly themed cards. This one incorporates a butterfly which had been machine embroidered then mounted on hand stitched vintage  fabric layers.

Shabby Chic Light

 
 
 
I really enjoyed making this light using collage techniques and have plans for several more if the pile of jars on my desk is anything to go by!!

Collage Birds...

 
Still looking back at previous work and to keep you going while I work on top secret stuff!
Meet Birdie, Cath , Chardonnay and Daisy, paper collage art work which were the starting point for some stitched work. Looking at them now I think I should develop these further, perhaps making 3d versions of them. Watch this space....

Mirror Mirror on the Wall....

 
 
 
 
I made this on a workshop with Mark Gould. Follow the link and see if you can spot it on his blog. I had a lovely day experimenting with layering paints and mediums. It was a million miles away from my usual colour palette but I love it!
 
Looking forward to the next workshop.......
