Collectors Dolls

A new product for my stall and outlet for my creativity is my new collectors dolls. You may have seen examples already. They are made from vintage and my own printed fabrics.These three came with me to Fakenham Makers Market on Saturday. Victoria, Katerina and Morwena. Katerina has now gone to a new home, yay! ๐Ÿ™‚

Painting

I have been itching for quite a while to do some painting. It has been over shadowed by admin, trying to earn money and making things to sell. But my itch has won and to my greatest of pleasure I have set myself up a still life!

Another problem I think is that I’ve always used student quality acrylics and at last I have bought myself a trial set of Golden acrylics and am amazed at the amount of pigment in them and the brightness of colours!still-life-1 still-life-2Scale and proportion are difficult but I think I’ve made a good start ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Dolls

I’ve been exploring new Ideas for products to sell on my craft stall and in my Etsy shop.ย I’ve come up with a way of using the textiles that I love, hand printed and recycled, in a very creative way, collectors dolls ๐Ÿ™‚

Lampshade Commission

I recently up-cycled this lampshade for our living room and shared with my friends and followers on Facebook.lamp-shade-2It has resulted in me getting a commission forย a Lampshade of a specified design which I realised just in time that I’d better not say any more in case they read this post!!! ๐Ÿ˜›
