and then.....

Well my latest page for dear Martha, a member of the FABRIC GIRLZ, is finished and in the post to Magda in Germany. Martha's wonderful book had a theme of a secret garden with a wonderful gate that opened into the book on the front page,with a brick wall the other side for us all to use as a graffitti wall to sign-in , really FUN !

I painted felt with metalic paint and sewed images that I had stamped into air dry clay and rubbed with coloured rub and buff. Turned it all into a big pocket with treasure hidden inside.
So inspiring to work with earths grand colour scheme,the greens, golds and brown have a calming feel about them I think...
Added tags to encourage viewers to touch and look...
Really enjoyed this book so hope Martha will like it.
Now this little fella is only very small but gave me so much joy to create while visiting with a lovely friend. He stand just 1.5 inches tall, a shrine by COFFEE BREAK DESIGNS that ARTISTIC JOURNEY sell in their online shop. Love these little shrines that come in many different shapes and sizes and can be turned into a necklace or tiny earings.
VERY COOL !!!
