A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

Moths Wings and Lobster Pots

A section from an art quilt that I'm working on. It isn't finished yet, so I'm only showing small areas to give a flavour of what it's all about. Again, this is inspired by a moths wing, and this time I've used the paper lamination technique. Below are two more images.

Finally, below is the finished article from a previous piece of work that I posted about in July. It was from a photo that I manipulated in photoshop that I took on Ferring beach. My daughter has taken a shine to it, so I've finished it off by quilting in some ripples and reflections, to make it appear as though the lobster pot, rope and pebbles are under water. Hope you still like it Emily!!
