Scribble Picnic - Umbrella

Umbrella is the third challenge with Scribble Picnic.  Something a little different, fabric, paint and stitch.


Hand painted fabric, with the exception of the polka dotted umbrella, and then all stitched.

Doing a series

Although I did not realise it at the time, but I unconsciously do art in a series.  In the past I have drawn little individual books of birds, cupcakes, cats and dogs.  I have loads of sketchbooks with specific themes in each.  I have not really done this with my textile art before, but things are changing.

I love curves (and straight lines) so have started free cutting my fabric without much thought and putting them together again and adding lace, beads and top stitching. The results are these beach scenes.




More will be coming, as I have sold the top one at my local Hayloft gallery.
Update, now sold the bottom one as well.

Scribble Picnic - Cabin

Scribble Picnic got off to a good start with octopus last week thanks to our host Michael.  This week we have cabin.  I would love to look out of my window and see this whimsical cabin at the bottom of my garden, perhaps the fairies could live in the top storey!


Last week I dragged out my coloured pencils, this week it was my Copic markers on Bristol board. 

There will be lots of different cabins over on the Scribble Picnic blog, just click on the icon on the right.
