Marlene's birthday art

I altered some wooden playing blocks for the Paper Princess Marlene for her birthday. They are two sided and one side says "love" while the other one says "dream".

I also altered a paper bag from Typo for her presents.

New job card

A colleague is moving on from our section and I made this card for him. He has a great sense of humour so I wanted the card to be funny.

Two quick cards made last night

Last night there was a football game on so I headed to my craft room while DH was watching it.

This card is for a colleague
at work who is leaving.

And this one is for my Mum with a photo of my 

nephew when he was much, much younger 

and he did some self-face painting. I used 

a card with pastel pieces as the background.

Screenprinting workshop

Last weekend I have undertaken a screenprinting workshop with Nancy Brown at the Brisbane Institute of Art.  It was very informative and lots of fun, and I ended up with many fabric pieces which I can use in my art. Here are the results:

This was done with a linocut which was repeated 

all over the piece

Same linocut as above but stamped in red ink

This was my very first attempt with screenprinting and cut out shapes
