Material Desire...


Cradled by an amethyst geode, this Haute Creation writing instrument in amethyst and gold is hand-carved from a single Brazilian amethyst using ancient lapidary techniques to preserve the unique personality of the precious stone.

Fabric Book Art with VENETIAN PLASTER

Fractured Angelics ~ Kate Thompson
Hi everyone 😁
So 2018 is almost here and I've decided to take a few online art courses. Yay! I'm still going to be revising book two 'Awake in Purple Dreams' but needed to let the muse play with colour and texture too. There are quite a few great classes available (link HERE) but this one, in particular, lured me in as I would like to create wall panels from drop cloth (dust sheets), even Calico could be used. I'm sooo excited! 

Below are a few of Kate's videos ~

Venetian Plaster


Jennifer Lanne's art inspires me. It's where I got the idea for combining plaster to drop cloth. I love the vintage feel and prefer the lighter colours. Beautiful work.

I think the unicorn will be my first attempt at a wall hanging. It will almost have the feel of the story I want to write 'The Paper Unicorn'. Perhaps, I can use text from notebooks to place onto the fabric.
