The Walled Garden

 On my desk this week is a small textile collage.
It's following my current theme of the garden and it depicts a small walled garden, with an open archway leading into the flower garden.  It's about 6cm by 6cm.  I'd love a little arch or secret door in my own garden!

I'm linking up with Julia over at What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Spring Garland and WOYWW #310

I needed to get this out of my system.
I've had the flowers and berries in my loft for several years and 
have been wanting to use them - but no idea for what.
Now I have no idea what to do with the finished garland!
But I feel better having 'scratched that little itch!'

I'm linking up with WOYWW - why not pop over and see what other people have on their desks this week.

Paper Artsy Challenge and Moss Garden

Another entry for the Paper Artsy Challenge and still being inspired by Leandra's video and the Adirondack Colorwash sprays.
Moss Garden teabags sprayed with Adirondack 'Espresso' and 'Lettuce',
then rusted and sprayed again.
I used invisible thread - it's springy - so the beads stand proud of the work, 
like the tiny flowers on moss.

Paper Artsy - Sprays Challenge

For the Paper Artsy challenge we have had to use sprays. 
  I was inspired when I saw Leandra's video and I realised I have that same beautiful green Adirondack spray called 'Lettuce'!  
 It was perfect for my Emergence of Spring project,
and it was perfect for moss!     

I used teabags backed with Vilene, Adirondack sprays, velvet, silk thread, silver wire, beads, rubber stamps and distress ink.
