Fabric-art postcards

July 28, 2013

Lately I have been focussed on preparing pieces for my “Growth Rings” exhibition in a few months time.   Feeling tense I needed to escape confines creating without too many  demands on style, and to do this I made fabric art postcards with fabric and stitch.    These are a few of my latest ones – all sold instantly, to people visiting Dungog’s Quiltarama.  My box of cards is now empty and I am now ready for bigger adventures.                                                                                                                                                        IMG_1254IMG_1252IMG_1251IMG_1248IMG_1247IMG_1321IMG_1320IMG_1253


Growth Rings

July 20, 2013

Gearing up for Growth Rings exhibition at Dungog in October 2013, I have just finished this piece, having worked on it for over a year (in small bursts at a time).   Watercolour painted background is a new technique I have been exploring, and I do quite like the textural effect created.  Thermofax prints have been added, in addition to machine and hand stitching.   It is as yet unnamed as the image makes me think of a few titles.   Love to know what you think of this piece and what your eyes are seeing. Image

Dungog is once again holding the Quiltarama exhibition – in two venues in our town.   At the RSL club – also the CWA rooms in Dowling St where demonstrations in textile art are being held.

I will be there demonstrating how easy it is to create individual and unique fabric art postcards.   Love to see you there.

This piece has been “refurnished”!   I made this 12 months ago and it has been hiding its face all this time.

Too dark – too moody – it needed some sunshine.   So I added to it with fibre and stitch and it seems warmed up and smiling now.

What do you think – love to hear from you.
