The theme over at MMM this week was fashion. I've been eyeing up this large puzzle piece for a while so decided this was the time. Had a lot of fun with the distress and stamping on the background, loving the white pen, but for me the most fun was sewing the fabric flowers. They may be popping up on pieces for a while to come.

Grungy Trinchie

Trinchie is such a great size to work on and Joan picked this at the theme on Mixed Media Monday - yes I know it's Thursday but timekeeping isn't a strongpoint. Saturday's workout theme this week was gringy so this is my piece for both.
The background is a mix of acrylics, gesso and inks with clear embossing and a little bit of gold leaf and then since the weather is so far from summer I went with an autumn theme.
I promise no more orange or birds for a while!

Bits and bobs

Well I was supposed to be tidying up but you know how it is. I found some new paperartsy minis and instead of putting them away I reached for the ink and made this couple of quick tags for no reason at all. I'm loving working with fabric at the moment and try to incorporate it where I can.

I also thought I would share the birthday card I made for DH. I bought some lovely postcards while we were in Paris and have used part of one and coloured it to make this since he loved the city so much.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Who inspires?

I was very excited and honoured to be given this award this week by a very talented and good friend Ann. She makes the most beautiful candles and is so generous when it comes to sharing her knowledge and skills with others, a rare commodity sadly. Make sure you check out her blog!

There are so many talented people out there but these are people who constantly inspire and although I know will have received this already, but will also appreciate the genuine sentiment behind it.

It's going to

Kaz - one of the most talented, and big hearted people I know. If only we didn't have the ability to lead each other so astray ;-)

Audrey B - she truly is a mixed media artist, so many different techniques to see on her blog with a style that is unique and true to herself. Such a genuine person too.
Audrey H - such an inspirational artist. Lots of fabulous things to see on Audrey's blog and I love her style!
Femmy - again a genuine person with lots of beautiful work on her blog - I love visiting her blog!
Thank you ladies!
Enjoy your weekend x
