I've been working on some new art for my etsy shop and thought I'd show you some of the ideas. These pieces are not for sale (yet), but if my cunning plan [see above] works, I will have some new pieces up in the next week or so [in this instance, the word "so" is used in place of "year or two"].
Here's a lino cut I've been working on:
Apologies for the reflection in the glass. I have learnt my lesson and will never again photograph any of my art with glass still in the frame (unless someone has a neat photography trick they can share with me). There's some more text I still need to cut, and more colours to experiment with.
And, here's my first mash-up of an idea I'm working on. The idea is to use mixed media to create some cute, simple and affordable art for the home, using vintage fabric, aerosol stencils and experimental stitching. I'm looking forward to using some gorgeous vintage fabric from a deceased 30's sofa once I'm feeling more confident!
Good so far, but think I deserve a tea break...
