For those of you visiting me for the first time, welcome.  I am a Canadian textile/mixed media artist.  To read more about me, please click on the sidebar button entitled "About Me".
If you would like a chance to win, please leave a comment in the comment section below this post.  You must have an active blog to be eligible to win one of THREE textile collage file folders shown below.
You can read more about this folder on this post.
You can read more about this folder on this post.
This is a new folder I made specifically for the OWOH event.  The background is lace with various collage elements layered on top and of course, there is a heart in there!  
This is the inside!  
Good luck to all! 
The event is closed!

  62. Such lovely work. I also want to thank you for the link to the workshops. I am seriously considering the digital grounds one. I also appreciated the mini tutorial on fabric beads. What a wealth of information.
    What do you do with the fabric beads once they are made? How do you attach them to things?
    I was thinking of how to incorporate them into my quilts. They would be much lighter than traditional glass and ceramic beads but could still add that bit of sparkle that is sometimes needed.
