Jill has been running an Embroidery Guild workshop making these brooches. We all had a good time it was good fun. They are made from coloured magazine pages cut into strips and applied with machining to aqua soluble fabric then washed to dissolve. When gathered we hand sewed beads and sequins on. I shall wear them over Christmas and then probably use on a book cover
I have had a big 000000 birthday so to celebrate my old age I painted a canvas. The photo was touched up but having lightened it I now have white hair I really dont have hair that colour. The background is mostly Sherrill Kahns sorbets I have had a set hanging about for sometime. I purchased a set of small bottles not wanting to use them all I have hardly touched them daft isnt it. This was all done on photo canvas it came out well apart from it didnt take stamping very well. I will pin it up on the wall in my craft room.
