Travelling Art Book

I've just made this little art book with 12 blank pages inside. It's going to be sent from artist to artist and each person will decorate a page. It might be a while before it comes back, if it ever does!

Here are some of my latest sewn projects.

Felt with free machine stitching - not sure what to use it for yet


Master-board Designs

I have been using the master-board technique for a while to make postcards and ATCs but I only recently discovered what it's called!

The series of cards is all made from one master-board design that has been cut into pieces.

Here I started with some fabric scraps and Gelli printed them with acrylics before adding lino prints.

Next I used free machine embroidery to outline and define the shapes.

I then cut them to the right sizes and satin stitched the edges.


Here are my latest tags. The milkshake ones below are for the Tim Holtz tags of 2015 challenge.


Dressmakers house ATC
Here are my latest ATCs. Some of them are for an ATC village swap and are the houses and stores in a mini village.

Village general store


This ATC is for an Alice in Wonderland swap. I think she is one of the most ugly things I have made. Hopefully she'll give my partner a laugh!

Journal Pages

Here are my latest journal pages.


I've been using paint, collage and fabric to make lots of postcards to swap with other artists around the world.
