Saturday!

Well this week certainly flew by!! I feel as though I am saying that a lot lately so I had better just "go with the flow"! I didn't get a whole lot of creative time this week but I finished off another Oxford Impressions piece. This one is a little hanger using the sweet little fairy girl image from the latest stamp plate. I experimented with colouring some of that very light weight lacy paper using my Lyra crayons and lots of water and then I enjoyed using them so much I used them to colour the fairy and the paper flowers as well. The whole thing is stitched to water colour paper and then a piece of canvas.

Over the last few days I have received an amazing array of art - three more ATCs from the Surface Design Technique exchange and then I was one of the winners on the wonderfully talented and generous Kelsey O'Mullane's blog. I am SO lucky!

This is the amazing texture paste journal cover that Kelsey sent me -
such stunning texture and gorgeous rich colours).And this a Kelsey Texture Paste ATC - equally amazing!


This fabric ATC is from Jan Ziebol -
a beautiful silk and wool needle-felted combination.

This fabric ATC is from Judy Alexander - hand-painted fabric with
some fabulous stitching and thread painting to create a fabulous landscape.

This ATC is made from fused plastic bags and is from Aynsley McKay (unfortunately no blog)- the top pieces are cut out from fused plastic and are fused to the background layers of fused plastic bags. Terrific result!!
