Linda Monk

I have followed Lynda's work for sometime.
I love using 3D medium on Lutradur and then heating it
to get the lacy effect. This is then painted in many different ways.
Lynda was demonstrating her technique at
'Textiles in Focus'.
It was great to see her in action.
I brought her book.
"Exploring Creative Surfaces"
and highly recommend it. 
Visit Lynda's blog and see more of the exhibition 

If you would like to buy her books see below.

Textile in Focus Exhibition

The Exhibitions and Demos at Textile in Focus,
were fantastic. Sadly as I said before there were no 
photographs allowed but postcards and goodies.
These cord sculptures were made by Jenny Furlong,

Goodies Brought at Textile in Focus

I had a fun time at Textile in Focus and I alway stock up
on inspiration, reading material in the shape of leaflets and books.
From the top, Sandra Beech is a local Textile Dyer,
and we all love her threads and fibre papers.
At the Colourious stand I brought some papers, stamps
and the authentic shisha glass mirrors and some
bling embellishments for a book cover I am working on.

After a cup of tea with friends.
Art Van go is always a stop off for me and  as you can
see by the bottom photograph lots of acrylic inks
this time, a stencil, some Angelina fibres, foils and
some stamps.
