I first came across her when I bought this wonderful book

She also has a fabric collage online workshop called Branches, Buds and Blossoms
It would be cool to do a fabric collage and perhaps get me into creating a different type of art - I've been interested in experimenting with mounting fabric art on canvas
Couldn't I just work on making my own collage from my own knowledge?
This might be the impetus to make me do it...when will I get around to doing this otherwise?
I'll spare you the rest of my internal debate....in the end I decided it was on special for only US$15 until 15 October (now US$25) so I had nothing to lose!
Lesson 1 was to gather our fabrics. We were told to choose a focus fabric - I have had this lovely set of fat quarters set aside waiting for the right project
I've chosen co-ordinating cottons in a range of colours, plains and patterns.Some sheers
And some other interesting fabrics
|Clockwise from top - nets, curtain fabric samples, hand-dyed felt and scrims|
This gathering makes me happy :-) More soon....
