Purchases from OSS and Sketchbook....

1st August 2017

Where has this year gone, can't believe it is August!!

I had a great weekend catching up with two of my children, lovely to have time to chat over a meal.

Yesterday was an 'Alba day', always enjoyable as she is full of fun!

Today have done washing and put samples from the course in my sketchbook, started in March in Cornwall, while I remember details....

...hand embroidered front cover....


....printed using wooden block, free machined and hand stitching...



....ideas of leaf designs for soluble film and organza...



....can't wait to play with Tyvek again..


....will certainly use glue dots again...


....will make more prints using Therma blocks.....


.....painted Bondaweb on Kunin and velvet...




...will try this on hessian next time.

My purchases from the suppliers who came to OSS...

....ironed recycled sari silk strips, such wonderful colours and the raw edges make super texture...


....all rolled up...


....a selection of hand dyed felt, scrim and silk threads in various textures.


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your week...
