These are two of my latest collaged wallhangings
that I have been creating -
"Little Button Boots" is the first one
I did list them in my Etsy Shop a couple of days ago
but they have already been taken.
Isn't this vintage beaded and sequin applique
It really is quite heavy!
and this is the next one!
"All dressed up"!
Layers of sweet laces, doilies and lace fabrics
pieces of recycled silks and dyed scrim -
what better textiles to create with
than these recycled fabrics
from old skirts!
This little sweetie looks simply amazingly dressed
in her elegant gown, black gloves
and draw string bag wearing
the sweetest smile -
I hope she didn't have to stand there and practise this pose
for tooo long!!!
Now as a bit of a face lift to my blog I decided to give my header
an update to reflect a more current representation
of my artwork - I did it myself and think I'm rather
pleased with the simple no-fuss approach!
I realized that it has been 2 years since my last one was created so beautifully by Karen Valentine
I used Picasa as my guide and it really was quite easy -
anyway I am open to any suggestions or comments!!!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend
whether it is warm and sunny or
as it is here Downunder right now.
The freezing nights very gratefully are turning into
the most warm and sunny days for Winter
here so there's plenty of warmth in the
sun to make you still feel motivated.
I'd love to hear what you is motivating you today!!!
Love and hugs,
