Paper Dolls

These are altered paper dolls, I just used the outlines and shapes. They have new faces and dresses. The dress fabrics are my designs, the faces were created on my tablet.

Bird T-shirt

I used one of my motif designs for this t-shirt which I had printed at Zazzle. These same birds but on a background were featured on my 2014 calendar tea towel which is still hanging in my kitchen.

Zazzle shop.

Knitted Blankets and Fabric Swatches

I've used the last of my knitted swatches into blankets, these were stitched to a fleecy blanket to encompass the loose threads on the back and also make them more snug. You would probably class the swatches as vintage now as they were made a long time ago.

And the first of my fabric swatches of the year. These were designed for the coral, mint, black and white contest, I entered the lower one and it didn't get far....there were 674 entries for this contest.

Plain or Fancy?

I made the stamp out of a used foam nail buffer block, then added colour with brusho and posca pens.

Do you prefer the plain version or the colourful one?

Dance on the Table

Two collages from my sketchbook. I used part of a paper bag above and the dresses below were made from a picture found in a magazine of vintage ceramic brooches.
