Printed Textile

I’ve just been inspired to work into and improve one of my old print blocks. I’ve cut into the basic shape to make it look more exciting.This image shows me testing the block on paper. I’ve made some extra test blocks in the shape of leaves to use with it.I’ve had this vintage anti-macassar for a while, already dyed with onion skins for me to print on. I’ve been waiting for just the right block to print on it with and decided this was it.Don’t you think it looks great on my Sofa! 🙂

New Painting

I have been relaxing into doing some new paintings recently, being lead by my own inspirations, applying paint to the canvas and seeing what happens next.

This painting is not finished so I’ll just show you sections 🙂  As you can see there is collage and drawing involved as well. Those of you who were following my still life progress, don’t worry, it is still on the easel! 🙂

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! 🙂
