This is the gorgeous new wallpaper we have in our bedroom! Its totally different from the rest of the house and not 'typically me' at all. But I like it......
The embroidery on the skirt of a fabulous 'cocktail' dress I bought last week. It was reduced in a sale from £100 to £25 - ooooh I do like a bargain! Now I'm all ready for the Christmas parties....A page in my journal ready for pictures and words. I got the technique from Jean at http://bluebirdslivinginthemeadow.blogspot.com/ It was lovely, messy fun, thank you Jean.
An ATC I made a while ago for a swap at Chriss's (http://chriss-rollins.blogspot.com/ ) I used alcohol inks on part glossy wrapping paper, a picture from Piddix (etsy) and angelina fibres. Close ups of the can I altered for our challenge on http://bigartadventure.blogspot.com/
I used gesso, tissue paper, stamps, acrylic paints, stencils and embellishments.
The quote says adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.An excellent book I'm reading at the moment.
Some letter doodling I did after reading this http://artinredwagons.blogspot.com/2008/08/lettering-technique-i-had-to-try.htmlThe rest of Kimmie's blog is well worth looking at, too, she makes fabulous artwork. Have you seen her altered can yet? Its amazing!
This was my altered envelope in Chriss's competition last week. I may actually use it! The bouquet was cut from a magazine, the other flowers were torn from paper napkins and applied with gel medium.
And finally.......a sneak preview of something I'm making for the next challenge at http://bigartadventure.blogspot.com/ The wobbly machine stitching is deliberate. Honestly. Hopefully see you there on Friday!!
