Boro

One of the things I like to do is recycle.I’ve also been interested in Japanese Boro technique for many years.We have that huge glass table and I’ve been working on a series of placemats from our families old jeans.

These are really basic starts and I’m looking forward to long light evenings adding more stitches.

I’m off to Sydney Australia this month, am trying to book a Master class and will be connecting with a long term internet crafting friend.

 

 

Women and Creativity ATC

I’ve been invited to join the Women & Creativity ATC Play along again this year.

ATC’s or Artist Trading Cards are 3 1/2 by 2 1/1 inch pieces of art created by artists ¬†for many different reasons.Maybe to try a new techniques, as a learning opportunity or to make a statement.

My Great Grand Father was a lithographer in London.I made an acrylic 3 layered background on green card.I then made a simple print block and hand-tinted flowers.I then used a glitter fabric pen to highlight the edges.
