Assemblage – Fuchsia

Assemblage - Fuchsia

Some time ago, you may have seen my post about it, I ordered some sari fabric remnants.  Well, at first they didn’t arrive and the seller made enquiries with her postal service.  With no sign of the parcel of sari material, the seller apologised and gave me full refund.  That was way back at the begining of March.  But guess what? The material turned up last week!  I’ve been in touch with the seller and she would only accept the cost of the material, declining the postage, and apologising again for the postal delay( poor girl, it wasn’t her fault!).  Anyway the sellers name is Fabricana, she sells on Etsy(here is the link  – Fabricna), she has lots of lovely material and she is lovely person to do business with.

What is sari material.  Visit the Wikipedia page to find out more – Sari on Wikipedia.

I love the imagery and they are sure to inspire new assemblage dresses.  Thanks to Beauty Comma on blogspot.

Blue Heart Collage

A section of one of my own collages from a while ago – Blue Heart Collage.  Anglesey is well known by artists for it’s amazing skies, this was the influence behind the original piece.

I put this up Tom, beacuse I’m having my blue heart trailers back.   😆

Collage – Sepia Swallow

collage

A simple collage

The swallow has been painted using sepia coloured ink, then washed over with a gold acrylic to give an aged look. It also has a small gold heart relief on the wing. I’ve made the flowers by layering and creasing different papers and fabrics, and then sewn then together to give a layered ruffled look. The small bird has been embroidered with a duck egg blue thread. Parts of the collage have been washed with white acrylic to the piece an aged but timeless look.
