Finished at last !

Holly in Oil

Its really strange but when i have an oil painting drying i find it hard to get on with other crafting,i cant seem to concentrate on another project when i have one unfinished,hence its been a few weeks since i have a commission to paint Ballet shoes in metalic Acyrlic paints (bronze ,copper and gold) on a block canvas ! thats going to be a challenge,but i know i will enjoy it hopefully.Really must get that done quickly,cant wait to get back to my Fabric Art ,such a lot of ideas going around in my head !

Naughty but nice

Mixed Media Fabric Postcards 4"x6"
Loveee making these,the brown one is a little bit naughty,but as its a postcard i thought it worked lol.

The background is needlefelted then free stitched on my machine,the flower is sort of shabby, done with diecuts and the image is fabric transfered with freezer paper through my printer.

The pink and green one is much the same but i used rubbers stamps onto fabric which is hand dye'd...."Tempus Fugit "means Time Flees,I had to look it up lol,
This one is for a swap in my UK group,the theme being "Time " The backing is thick white Vilene.

If anyone is interested in doing a one to one swap please let me know,i just love making these in fabric though,would like to start a collection !
