New Journal Page and Giveaway

This model is the face of one from the artist Edward Byrne Jones - there is such a look of softness and innocence about her.  I chose to use these soft colours of mushroom pinks, light and dark grape, khaki and olive green in fabrics of pintucked cotton, tapestry, crushed velvet, silk, brocade, pink satin,  laces and mohair.  The antique feel comes from the very beautiful vintage silk sari fabric from my dear friend, Jo.
This braid gives the piece a lovely textural feel.

Embellishments include buttons, velvet, a tassel and a guinea fowl spotted feather.  A have a small collection of these feathers from friends, Pat and George, who own these particular guinea fowl.  Aren't they gorgeous?

Whilst I'm here posting I would just like to thank EVERYONE who
has left the kindest comment on my blog in relation to my GIVEWAY.  There is still one week to go!  All entries must be in by
Wednesday, 24th November.  Good luck to you all!

I play with fabric now and then...I like the experimental stuff and hope to one day own an embellishing machine.I've had a shift to jewellery lately as I have developed a back problem and can't sit for very long at all.Just being creative in any way shifts the focus of the back pain so I am thankful of that.Your work is amazing.I love Dale Rollerson and deb Bakers fibre art too.How great you get good things in the second hand shops down there...there is crap here LOL.

  2. When I saw the photo on google reader I was intreged. I had to come over and see it for myself. Just beautiful. So many layers and embellishment items that just add to the mystery of this piece! Great job!
