Watched Battleship this evening, well worth watching, great effects and story. Watch the trailer and see what you think. Are Aliens out there?

I just love colouring and embellishing ordinary fabrics or paper and making them into exquisite pieces of work.
Embellishing with lots of stitch, foils, glitz and beading. You can see more of the mixed media on my Blog HERE
Hope Ruth's Mixed Media Demonstration inspires you to have a try.

I went to the NEC Birmingham yesterday to visit' The Festival of Quilts', Exhibition. There were so many wonderful quilts, textiles, artists showing and demonstrating their work and of course lots of opportunity to buy amazing materials and books for inspiration.
Several of us spoke to Cas Holmes who is originally from Norfolk, so we had some fun with that!
"Normal for Norfolk!".
I brought her latest book, "The Found Object', and as you can tell by the title, what her work is all about. Her exhibition was outstanding and the integral way she joins art mediums together is often invisible, making the work seem transparent in nature.
As you may know my work also encompasses found and recycled objects. I am always trying to find the 'magic within' everyday often overlooked objects and extol the virtues of recycling.
The interview above is an overview of Cas and her work in her studio.
