Tuesday at The Gallery 9th Feb 2010

Took all the art stuff to do black and white plus colour of choice (pink and blue, I could'nt decide at the time) for the new ATC challenge and to show Gallery visitors the Artist Trading Cards from around the world and that art could be beautiful,small and can be achieved in their short visit. Also collage work of mine that combined the medias of paper,textile,paint and print.
One of the ladies who had tried the embellishing the week before had brought her finished card with it into show us. it was beautiful but like a true artist she thought it needed something else and wan't quite right but would work on it. It was beautiful! she had embroidered Dorset buttons and included gold work on it too!
Another visitor brought in this jacket, it was a thrift shop find and had originally been made in India. Amazing embroidered sections all crazywork pieced together. Beautiful. The lady had brought it in to see if she could embellish the frayed ends in or what stitch to use.


  1. All of these new posts have really been inspiring. I love looking at the clothing, as well as the new ATC's. I am going to drag out an old jacket to see what I can make of it.

  2. I love the look of the jacket. It looks like a fascinating garment
    Thankyou for your interesting blog.
