These are the pieces that I have done for my own themes. The first one is my angel, and the last two are for my Oriental jigsaw. They are all complete, so will mount them onto canvas as soon as I have bought them. I seem to have every size apart from the one I want.
For the Oriental ones, I have used stampboard, friendly plastic, charms, and beads to give them a three D dimensional look. The backgrounds on all of them were painted with a pearlescent acrylic dabber, and then stamped. The Oriental ones have been embossed with clear powder. Two of them have my favourite accent beads on.
Gosh, did I struggle with this one. It's for Sheila, who wanted a homespun, rustic, country, shabby look, in faded blues, green, and cream. I painted the background with acrylics, stamped the rag doll, shrank another one, and added various bits and pieces. I think I got carried away, and put too much on. Just my own to do now.
I am interested in all types of art and crafts,including altered art, ATCs, painting, and textural crafts, especially embroidery, and felting. I also like to combine paper and fabric in mixed media art. My passion at the moment is fabric books. I love gardening, when the British weather and my bad back allows. My gorgeous grandsons and granddaughter also lure me out of my studio, that is until they are old enough not to make a mess in there
