Just keeping you informed.....

..of whats taken me over so far.





































I Think I'm going to make lots more of these and I've ordered some ridiculously small, very cute, deep sided stretched canvases , only 5x4 inches , to display them.

I see a wall full, either rows of them or in a square block.
I wish for now though that I could just get them together in a rectangle for this blog.

For subtlety and relief from vulgar colours, do visit Karens blog.
Its cool, calm, tasteful and relaxing.

These are beautiful and so unusual!

Heather said...

Lovely shapes and colour combinations. They remind me of extra special jigsaw pieces and I think your idea of displaying them on those tiny artists canvases is a great idea. They'd look great decorating a small space or massed in a larger one.

Sandy said...

More nice pieces. I like the bright colors, but these are nice too.

arlee said...

Jackie, i'm totally in love with these. Try making them into a "panorama" in your photo edit program.

Ha! Ha! Ha! There's room for both subtle and vulgar colours!!! Me, the older I get the more I can tick off the list of things in the "When I'm old I shall wear purple" poem........ I used to "do" subtle colours, but veer evermore towards the bright and colourful. Your work is lovely. x

alcoholinky said...

connie said...

These just keep getting better and better!!!

Vulgar colours? I don't think so!!! I've never been a fan of pastels. Great idea to mount them on little artist canvases...perfect.

Gina said...

These are also wonderful. And yesterday I read your article in Quilting Arts Magazine. Great to read!

karen said...

Aw shucks! Thanks for that and your colours are anything but vulgar, more vibrant, life affirming, energetic, vivacious......I could go on! (would probably have to get a thesaurus out though!

Daisie said...

Seeing a collection of your "bug" brooches in little canvases would be delightful, I can't wait.

They are FABULOUS and I adore the colours (not a fan of pastels and creams myself). They'll look perfect on mini canvases - great idea!

Elizabeth said...

I can see a wall filled with mini canvases each with one of your brooches on it!! It could be a grouping of 6 or 60 either way it would be stunning and it would be so easy to rearrange the order at any time. Sign me up I want a set of screaming oragne and hot pink with turquoise thread!!! No calming needed here!!!!!
Seriously let me know the moment yo have sets for sale!!
Hugs!
Elizabeth

MargB said...
