Coral Dreams - A Boat Full of Treasures for Paper Artsy

I was so thrilled to be asked recently to do a blog post for Paper Artsy, on the theme of stencils.  

The finished piece was a little boat surrounded by coral and filled with seashells and other special treasures!  Step by step instructions and information on the techniques I used are on their blog here.

Night Garden

I love my garden in the late evening, when the sun has gone down and the scents are often at their strongest.
   I've been using fresh foliage picked from the garden for making cyanotype sun printsthen screen printing with beautiful, creamy Jacquard textile paint, 
and lots of machine and hand embroidery - and there's lots more still to do!

Heuchera flower sun prints with printed seed heads

Printing over the marks left by teabags!

I knew moths would have to sneak in somewhere!

I'm linking up with Julia over at What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday
