Landscape Art Quilt


A small A4 art quilt with a landscape them.

The fabric was textured with Golden course molding paste and snippets from a page of a book were added along the hill line. Colour was added with inktense blocks. It was quilted with bamboo wadding and backing fabric then some stitching was applied with a sewing machine. More stitching was applied by hand. The binding was also textured and painted.

Time Collage

The Sketchbook Challenge this month is ‘sketching with collage’ and the Illustration Friday challenge is ‘time’ so I have combined both for this one.


I used gesso on the page first, and used an old calendar and diary page for the collaged bits. I drew on watch hands and numbers and finished off with smudged time related quotes in pen.

I also did a digital collage for time


Dino Claus and another Snowman

sb36p103It’s been a while since I did anything in an actual sketchbook but today I have a collage. The dinosaur is actually a piece of wrapping paper and the brown thing I drew is supposed to be a sack [! – looks like a dog bowl]. Unlike digital I can’t easily erase pen. Also another snowman drawn on the tablet [Galaxy note]. I seem to be drawing lots of snowmen recently and we haven’t even got snow at the moment, we do have lots of rain, wind and dark days – miserable.Sketch1610815
