My Creative Space

After weeks of procrastinating I finally found some creativity (clearing out cupboards has certainly helped - check out my blogs from earlier this week for the great arty/crafty goodies I'm selling) and finished a couple of bags that I'd started ages ago.  These bags are made from printed canvases that started life as a triptych artwork. The images on the canvases were a photo I took of feathers on the next door neighbours lawn which I then PhotoShopped and had professionally printed onto canvas.  I then printed out hibiscus onto silk using an ink jet printer, stuck them to the canvas and then stitched the **** out of the 3 canvases.  I then beaded the stamens of the flowers and they ended up looking like this

And from that to this
