So what have I just done? Well, for me Valentine’s Day is my focus as soon as Christmas is over as it is the next good selling occasion at the gallery where I sell my work. This year I have done some puffy hearts inspired by Belinda Spiwak’s article in Cloth, Paper Scissors Sept/Oct 2008. I have great fun selecting and recycling bits of fabric and ribbons from the large stash in my studio.
I used the postal theme to fit in with the window display in the gallery for some small block canvases using letters and envelopes sent to me in the 70s. The method I used for these was taken from Plaster Collage by Sue Pelletier in the July/August edition of Cloth, Paper, Scissors (as you can guess is one of my favourite magazines and one I refer to frequently for ideas).
