My Creative Space...

My creative space is chaotic this week as it's half term, so it's filled with children, poster paint and play dough!!

BUT, I have managed to finish my fabric art of my screen print,

I stitched her onto a grey tea towel I bought from Ikea to see how she looked in different colours, and used a vintage red button for one of the cheeks. I was tempted to use a red zip, I love zips, but used a piece of Lils old broken belt which works well I think!....a bit of a rock chick rather than a spring chick!

I used Kirsty's french knot tutorial for her freckles, although they're not as neat as Kirsty's they have the desired effect!


I'm now planning my next Spring girl screen print and how to experiment with the colours, to brighten up yet another foggy grey wintry day!

Take a look at more creative spaces at the fab inspirational Kootoyoo.
