Hello hello and happy Valentines everyone!^_^
Whatever you do may this day and every day of the year be filled with LOVE!
I'm sitting by the window trying to focus on typing this post, there is a cat outside that I see everyday and it's making me laugh right now! It's got this funny look- white paws (all four of them!) and they look like tiny shoes, grey round body and I am thinking -a stroll is definitely not what that cat needs! More like a dog-cat chase to lose some weight! ^_^
Anyway distractions aside I've been browsing blogs today looking for inspiring works and images and came across this post with an amazing collection of mixed media textile arts. Truly beautiful.
I studied Textiles and I loved it so much and often look through my portfolio with such a sentiment, I really miss doing Textiles but somehow I find it quite difficult at the moment to stop sewing clothes etc and go wild with collages and mixed media again..maybe I am put off by the mess that would create haha.
This work is one of my portfolios piece- mixed media art.
I remember my hands and clothes being stained in all sort of things afterwards! Wax, ink, paint, soft and oil pastels.. It was a nice and satisfying feeling though so I will definitely be getting messy again^_^ I bought this brilliant and inspiring book lately, I love it! I've forgotten so many techniques already and the book is a great reminder!
Ok I'm gonna shoot now. The cat is still lazying about outside so I'm gonna take an advantage of the sunny spell before it goes away and join it!
Have a wonderful day!

Thursday, 7 February 2013
Can't believe it's Thursday already! The week has gone by so fast! And today is late night shopping and it made me realise that I haven't been shopping for so long...well that's actually a lie- I have been buying fabrics and other sewing related materials but you know what I mean buying something just for me!^_^
Anyway I've been working on these foxes which I think are great for Valentine's (but definitely not only that) and I am enjoying the process and the final outcome so much that I'd thought I would share it with you guys... in pictures.
And in the meantime have a lovely evening!
