This is the second in my Dreamsacpe series.
The book measures (approx) 4" x 6" and is made from fabric which has been primed and painted.
I have then included artwork which been added using permanent ink,paints and colour pigments.
The words inside read 'come and join me,ride the breeze,over the mountains-we sparkle and scatter on the wind-' and are accompanied by a flow of dream images,finishing with a beautiful hand-pressed pansy flower, which has been carefully sealed to preserve.
The book folds concertina style and ties neatly closed with a ribbon and the outer cover is also hand decorated with designs too.

Nectarines and Plum Juice


'Nectarines and Plum Juice' is one of my most favourite mixed media creations to date!
I am so delighted to be sharing this piece with you here-it is also available for sale-link details to follow very shortly, but I was keen to get the photo collages up on my blog here first, I'm so very proud of it. I have a series of 'Dreamscape' mixed media fabric books planned for the next few weeks ( or possibly months if I find the inspiration to continue for longer!)
The book measures (approx) 4" x 6" and is made from fabric which has been primed and painted. The drawings have then been added using permanent ink and colour pigments. The words inside read 'nectarines and plum juice-elegant and unusual-when the birds join us-we will sing together!' and are accompanied by a flow of dream images. The book folds concertina style and ties neatly shut with a ribbon. the outer cover is also hand decorated too. Can be stored folded shut, or is also sturdy enough to display opened out if you prefer. A really delightful piece and a joy for me to create and express!

new ACEOS In store now!


This photo-collage is a small sampling of some of my latest ACEO designs, all created using delightful one of a kind embellishments and my own hand dyed silk fibers and fabrics. Rich in colour and totally unique, I have created darling little pockets in many of these for extra detail and interest, so each contains a miniature tag inside!You can click on the image for an enlarged view and please do check out further details in my store by simply clicking HERE!



What are ACEOs???? ACEO is the acronym for "Art Cards Editions and Originals". An ACEO is a small piece of art that can be defined by it's convenient 2.5 x 3.5 inch size. (Standard trading card size)
ACEOs are VERY different from trading cards however, because they are CREATED and traded or sold by artists. All my ACEOs are absolute ORIGINAL pieces of art! (Some artists choose to sell prints of their work -'editions' )

ACEOs are created in any medium available in the art world. Artists are creating them in ALL kinds of styles and varieties. There are no rules limiting the artist, outside of the size dimensions. ACEOs can be framed, propped, used as bookmarks,grouped together in larger frames......use YOUR imagination! Trading Card notebooks, sleeves and holders can all be used to display them.
