12x12 CD pieces

The week has flown by & I've finished 3 of the 6 pieces I'm putting into Inchmore Gallery for selection. It's a very accessible size so there might be some fierce competition!


This is the same ground as last weeks cuffs with turquoise foil added, that is, sweet wrapper foil - chewy mints if I remember rightly. Makes the 'bought' iron  foil go further. 4 little tiles of the same fabric stitched down on top.


I've gone back briefly to the weaving part of my life tho I couldn't for the life of me find the 'official' frame I used before so I wrapped an empty frame. Tied a few bits & pieces then stitched on a couple of beads from an old neclace. I'll have to weave in all the 'hairy' ends so it fits into the CD case.



You'll have seen this before in the form of a book cover or 2 & a collage - I found the heart already stitched to the velvet & added it to some leftover ground. A few beads & stitched painted paper  & I'm pleased so far. Price for a 12x12 CD case full of art? Tricky. I thought they were all ging to be priced the same but I'm not sure.



Just caught some daylight with the first 3 pics but here's some out of focus flash work. Just to prove I've made the cuff, along with another earing & brooch. I need to get on, the fairs aren't that far away!

I love the colours in the weaving, and use of sweet wrappers is brilliant - what a perfect excuse to eat choccies!

Catching up on your blog, looking at your last post too. It seems you are back in your art groove again after your tiny lay off. Gorgeous stuff you are creating, love your colors and techniques. Always fun to see what you are up to.

Good luck, these are delish Emma. You are just blossoming with your work and it's really your signature every time I see a new piece. Brilliant as you would say! xox Corrine

Great stuff Emma. I love the casual way you talk about the weaving, definitely a bit more than a tied in bits and pieces!

I love the blue weaving - shame the shaggy ends have to be tidied up, I rather like them!

Katie said...

You always combine the most interesting colors. I am in awe every time. I love that 2nd photo w/ the shaggy blues! xo
