I've Been....

..on a mission to find a mustard and black 'Art teacher' necklace but not found anything I liked. I found this necklace for £1 and decided to make my own. ( I bought two)

 I took it to bits, painted the edges black and covered the pieces with patterned papers.

and restrung the bits

Just need to find some outfits to go with them!

....last week I took a workshop with Jaki Bogg.... Textile taxidermy.
What a great day

I had no idea how these things were contructed..till I had a prod and poke at the sample... it's easy when you know how. Contruction was a bit slow because it's all hand stitched and I had a hard time trying not to be too's supposed to look shabby, I did try! and for once I followed the instuctions.

I used bits from my Linton Tweeds collection.It's quite a large piece, around18 inches tall.

If you get the chance to do this workshop then I would thoroughly recommend it.

Stamps, theses have sat in a drawer unused for the best part of four weeks...time to try them out.

I looked on the Neat and Tangled blog for inspiration.

They had used a little bit of glitter 

All in all a versatile set of stamps.

Modern and fresh

Reminds me of Sanderson wallpaper.

... This month at EfemeraInk we made dream catchers...with embriodery hoops and vintage doilies..

The center is coloured with a copic pen.

The feathers are cut with a Tim Holtz die and then embossed.

Lots of random beads.
A bit of gold embroidery thread is woven through the doily

The center is a ready made rose from Cosmo's old!
I knew it would be used for something someday!
