Collage Panel #6

...last one before leaving for Exeter....

Hope to see some of you there...

...come sit and stitch with me :-)



I'll be working on some more of these blocks/panels at the show and will have a "Sit & Stitch" table on my stand.

So...if you need to rest your feet...I'm on G32/G35 (not quite sure which yet!!)...

...except when I'm doing my talk entitled "Work a Theme & Work it Small" at 1pm each day.

Collage Panels #3 & #4

...all done...

.....and ready for Exeter!




I have a few more in my work-basket...

...but whether they'll get done between now and next week is a bit doubtful.

Still...

...you never can tell....

Collage & Stitch panel #1

I've been beavering away on some more small medieval tile print panels...

...intending to do "something" with them.

They became more and more intricate...

...and grew a few more layers in the making too.

Here's #1 finished and mounted onto a collaged background...

...on an 20cm x 20cm canvas...



Canvas panel is covered with crumpled tissue that has then been sprayed...

...stenciled.....

....had more embellished tissue applied...

.....and finally given a polish!

I'm very pleased with the outcome and have another three to finish for Exeter...

...where they will be up on my stand...

...and for sale.

Another Beakhead in the making....

Back from Bristol...

...and preparing for Exeter.

No time to rest up!

I'm trying to get a few new things done for my stand at the Exeter show...

...and this big(ish) Beakhead is now well underway.

It's a bit frustrating to have to keep waiting for layers and layers of paper and glue to dry before I can put on more....



.....but I'm sure it'll all be worth it in the end!!

Have a great Friday.
