I’ve been enjoying this weeks card making before the last Fakenham Makers Market before the summer break. All made with original art, as you know, I do like hands on messy stuff!
Three painting series finished last week

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! 🙂
I’ve been exploring new Ideas for products to sell on my craft stall and in my Etsy shop. 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 🙂
Meet Clarissa and Morwena.Morwena is now available to buy for £18.00 and soon will be listed in my Etsy shop!
I’m enjoying getting ready for my Christmas open studio this Saturday. Here are some Christmas textiles in the making. These are made from up-cycled fabrics, hand dyed and block printed. 🙂
My finished hare. I couldn’t wait to share it with you, I can’t believe I did it!It’s made me look forward to doing more 🙂
After buying some beautiful new lino cutting tools…….I thought it best to get using them. Encouraged by the Facebook Group ‘Linocut friends‘ I got started 🙂 I’m beginning my first lino print using more than one colour! I’m going to cut away slowly and print each time so that I can monitor how much I want to cut away. We shall see! 🙂
