A very relaxing activity combining yarns, threads & beads produced this delightful necklace for a very special little girl.
By creating a mini “loom” made on cardboard I was able to weave a background of textural soft pinky / mauve colours.
Sparkles from my bead collection were then sewn on … and voila, this necklace became ready to wear.
Blue & mauve link so beautifully together on pure silk with it’s sheen.
Looking at the various meanings of the name Maureen, using my best handwriting, this scarf showcases the personality and personal characteristics that I feel are connectd to the name, Maureen.
Using wax and cold water dyes with both my tjap and tjanting this piece of handmade work creates visual happiness.
Embracing the opportunity of summer’s super heat to do some botanical dyeing on silk, and then introducing some extra hues of the rainbow, brought delightful results.
These colours are permanent because I avoid plants that produce fugitive dyes, and the effect brings colours that are so so soft, yet retain the colour of Australia’s bush.
Needing some downtown time to beat Dungog’s heat, a bundle of hand painted cards emerged from my hands. These three are a sample of the 20 cards I made today. Landscape abstraction is something I feel to be special as it comes from within me, as a result of the natural landscape surrounds where I live. I welcome your thoughts – how do these images affect you?
