Not sure I like....

Well it started out as a chalange from myself for myself and yes i have done what I set out to do....I have mastered my techniques and skills screenprint and working with dyes. But not to say I like the out come, bit silly to put pigeons on a chair but urban grunge it is. Not sure where now yes i can do but still no work or jobs!  
Been off with conjunctivites since tuesday and feelling worst now than beginning of week, no more sticky eyes just sore and very itchy. Did not get an interveiw for Dream job, phoned and asked - so many applications could not read all just made a pile and picked the top four or so !!!!! It took me a week to do the application!


 I am always reminded that even if I dont like it some one may... 


Pulled out left over bit of flock from college days.....




 I enjoy putting random bits in my work hence the tricycle.

Did not work

I will just have to hang fire... want to buy furniture satin to do this, and just can't afford at present. First thing I will buy next month.  Postage tips the scale!

Pigeon fabric

Black fabric was a hand down so not sure how it would dicharge...every thing looked okay but have dropped it in water twice now so not sure what out come will be. Need to sort streamer( baxi boiler) out as clips are not holding fabric.










SOLD WORK !!!!

Shock surprised that work has sold on american site... 10 pieces WOW, thank you. Very nervous in this new venture that the quality is up to my standard. Better be.....
