I have had some vintage kimono fabrics in my collection of 'special cloth' for a while now, and just recently felt inspired to incorporate snippets into my mixed media work.... I have made several brooches - truly mixed media - and each with a slightly different construction, which is good for me as each is a little design puzzle and an interesting journey. My starting point is a tiny stitched figure and from there I decide how she may be layered and how her surroundings may be, a patchwork of fabric and stitch.
The new brooches and other mixed media work will be in my shop later on this evening. I'm also working on new dolls and pincushions, again using the kimono fabrics, and they will be in my shop later on this week, on Friday - just to pace myself. I'm also making new work for a lovely new gallery opening and I will share more about that soon!
thank you and I hope you enjoy taking a look at my new work later this evening, if you have a moment to pop in.....
