I’m very excited to be taking part in the first Armadale Open Studios Art Trail: Thursday to Sunday 17 -20 & 24 – 27 September, when my studio and many others will be opening to visitors. There will be several events happening as part of the Spring festival in the Armadale Hills area including art […]
Leaf & bark litter We’ve now gone through the colours of the rainbow but the challenge continues. Here is my collection of brown images for this month’s Roy G Biv. To see more & links to other blogs taking part, go to Julie B Booth’s blog here & Jennifer Coyne Qudeen’s blog here.
I bought a few of these coloured glass vases – this is the first cover I made – thought they might be nice for the cafe shop. What do you think? Another opened out book cover made with lots of left over pieces.
I haven’t had much time in the studio lately but today I did some thermofax printing. The design was done from a photocopy of a grevillea leaf from our garden. Note the thermofax screen is taped instead of having a white plastic frame. I didn’t like using these at first – it is easier to […]
These are a few of the covered books I’ve been making to sell at Genesis in the Hills vegetarian cafe. They’ve been selling so well, I can’t keep up! Above: the background is made up from tiny scraps of quilt fabric and some yarns with a sheer fabric over – the heart fabric was made […]
Much cooler today – to everyone’s relief, but we’ve had a couple of days 44 and 41C with our hottest night on record at over 29 minimum. A horrible bushfire in the Mundaring/ Parkerville area yesterday caused around 50 homes to be destroyed. We live in the hills too, so I really feel for the […]
I had some pressed rose leaves which I used to make 2 thermofax screens so I thought I would also do a sunprint with the idea of possibly using it in my ‘Living Colour’ quilt. I may over print it with the thermofax screen too. The circular print above is a different kind of sunprint […]
I got a few more covered books made today for the Mia Flora craft fair tomorrow, as well as pricing and organising everything. Hope its not too hot as we’ll be outside.
I finished these yesterday, they are for the Craft fair at Mia Flora Garden Centre and café, Brookton Highway, Roleystone on Sunday 27th October. I tried my new stencil in my sketchbook and on fabric – quite pleased with it. Below: a new thermofax screen made from a photo of fallen leaves from our perssimon tree. The […]
Block print and hand painting on linen. Below: sequin waste used as a stencil over background print. Journal pages: various stencil and print techniques. Some of my small framed textile works. Glass makes it hard to photograph. This machine embroidered fabric collage on a thermofax printed background is now framed too. Sketchbook cover with appliqued […]
