Beaded neck chokers.

We have so many beads, ribbons and trims in the workshop, nothing gets thrown away or wasted, because there’s always a fascinator or something in need of decoration. I’ve been using up smaller ribbon lengths and various trims to make neck chokers. My last batch sold out, but I have a few new chokers to choose from, all listed in the Etsy shop. There’s a little 10% discount SALE on throughout December, so it’s a good time to grab one! All ready to ship in 1-3 days! Thank you for reading, please fill out the subscribe box top right if you’d like to see my posts regularly!

Mini canvas original art paintings.

Wishing all my readers good will for the festive season! Creating original Art is such a satisfying pass time. Here are my latest mini 4” x 4” canvases. I paint them using acrylics, then varnish to protect. They look great on their own or in a group of several. They’re listed for sale in my main Etsy shop along side my accessories. I think they make a unique gift. Click on the photos to go to my Etsy Art section. Many thanks for reading.

New Feather headpieces.

I’m in the process of creating new feather headpieces. The 1920’s flapper style seem very popular and I have three ready in the etsy shop right now! My headpieces are all unique one of a kind and make a great statement!

Medusa Headpiece.

I only ever have one Medusa headpiece ready at a time and I'm constantly working on trying to improve the overall design. This piece is made from plastic snakes, set across the frame of the headband in a halo effect, it's very pretty and not too big. Available in my Etsy shop. Thank you for reading.

Original Art.

It’s not all about making hats and glamorous costumes around here! Sometimes we love to make Art!
I enjoy painting and recently completed a series of small acrylic paintings on pine wood blocks. I’m obsessed with birch trees and flower meadows and the paintings turned out lovely! The wood blocks are approximately 6” x 5” and it’s easy for me to work on small pieces in my studio! I’ve sold a few already, but there are plenty in my Etsy shop to choose from. More new Art coming soon! Thank you for reading.

Colouring book tutorial.

There's no doubt that colouring is a therapeutic activity and colouring books are having a moment right now. There are some very intricate detailed works available, in the shops or as Internet downloads. Obviously there's no right or wrong way to colour, but I thought I'd share the way I prefer to colour using basic 12 shades staedtler coloured pencils. You can see from the images, I work from dark to light with the pencils, I find this works best for getting light and shade. Thank you for reading!

1) I use black and brown to add shadows and depth.

2) I add the darkest reds and pinks.
