colour your day!


I woke today at stupidly-early-o'clock and decided in my wisdom that it was the perfect time to 'treat' myself with a really demanding yoga workout-fantastic!-although I am now faced with a very long and DARK day, (even the studio lights seem dull in this greyness) and it's feeling a little hard to keep the energy going now...
Time to chase away these dull winter days and check out all the scrummy flower rings available in my store HERE
-add a splash of gorgeousness to brighten up YOUR day!

'love' fabric art album...

This album was created using fabrics and papers with stitchery and vintage image embellishments. The style is very much grunge/shabby chic,with layers of yummy fabrics and papers,raw and torn edges and uncut threads-do not assume,however that the style means it is loosely stitched! It is firmly finished,and whilst designed to fray,the edges have been finished to prevent too much unravelling-it is very much designed to be handled!


There are eight pages, plus the inside of each cover is also lavishly embellished.
Entitled simply 'Love'( title is embroidered) this cute piece of textile art is filled with scrummy little tags,handmade using papers,beads,fibers,vellums and all manner of stitch and fabrics,tucked into pockets,the front cover is also embellished with one of my handmade flowers .
A lovely place to keep a few of your most precious mementos,or simply to enjoy for your self or as a gift,just as it is!
Available for sale PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR LOTS MORE PHOTOS!

Altered Block Set

The set posted below is now sold-but not to worry, I have just in time completed this lovely new set of five (5) altered art style collaged and painted wooden blocks.

The photos show selection of views, please click on the image to enlarge for a closer look-or visit the sale listing ( link below ) for more pics!




In a previous life these were traditional wooden children's building blocks.They vary in size,the largest being about 2" square.
Each block has been sanded, painted, collaged and decorated. Together they create an interactive sculpture which can be arranged in lots of ways either piled or flat,or to make the words 'FOLLOW YOUR DREAM', or simply displayed to show off your favourite sides!
Very effective! A totally original work this cannot be repeated and is strictly one of a kind. Ideal gift for a desk or shelf in an office or study, or perhaps a special corner in your own workroom or studio!
Currently available fore sale HERE!!
