Creating a winter landscape

 30th December 2020


My last post of the year!! 

Think we are all very glad to see the end of 2020 and look forward to a better 2021.


I am sure I have mentioned the textile artist Emma Wigginton who has been making videos on You Tube, this work was inspired by her....

I collected as many white and silvery fabrics as I could from my stash including silk velvet, silk organza, linen, cotton, scarf oddments and netting. These were then cut into landscape shaped strips and pinned on  cotton wadding after trying different arrangements! I made a long strip as I thought I might make a picture and some cards.....





...selected threads including metallic...


...free machined in place...





...as yet I have only produced 2 cards, thought they would be good for winter birthdays.



I still have a lot of base landscape to play with in the new year!

Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2021x
