Texture ATC

I haven't been very active on here recently, too busy flying around the country, entertaining my Mum, and trying not to let the weather get me down. We did think of building a boat, as we have had so much rain, but Peter gets sea sick, so thought better of it. The weeds have taken over the garden, and the trees are gradually encroaching, and taking on jungle like qualities. I have made a few things, but not very often, a typical Summer lack of inspiration and time.

This is an ATC that I made for the MAMMA swap. It was to make one in your favourite thing. I was torn between birds, and texture, as you can see, texture won. The background is tissue paper, and texture paste, and the heart is made out of Fimo

Cover for Nature book

This is the cover for the nature book that Maureen, Jan, and myself have done. There are 18 pages all together, covering birds, trees, butterflies, fungi, and flowers.
My cover is made from pelmet vilene, painted and textured with texture paste, and then embroidered with silks. The flower is a crochet piece that I made 100's of years ago. All I have to do now is bind it all together.

Chunky houses

Another batch of chunky houses for a swap I'm in. I really enjoy doing these, as I like working on different shapes. Some of them are textured, the others collaged.
