First up here's the fun project...
Fun Flower Collaboration
I was so inspired by this amazing work that I came up with an idea for a collaboration for UK artists. My idea is for artists/crafters/designers to contribute handmade flowers to be made into a large piece of art that is then auctioned off for charity. You can make your flowers in whatever medium you would like- felt, beads, paper, ceramic, wool etc.- as long as it will be possible for me to attach it to a background (probably fabric, so think about how I could sew it on).
Any size is OK but don't go massive and dwarf your fellow contributors. If it fits in a 6"x4" envelope it's probably fine.
So, if you want to take part email me with your name and your blog/flickr/shop/web address. I'll send you my postal address so you can send me your contribution. All participants will be mentioned on my blog along with photos of what you send in. Submissions should be with me by the end of September.
Nearer the time I'll host a vote to decide which charity should benefit (let me know if you have any ideas) and then auction off the final piece.
I'm really excited about this so please spread the word to your UK friends!
And next up here's my new personal stationery that I'm rather in love with...
I hope you're all having good weeks. I'm going away this weekend with a bunch of crafty ladies and I can't wait :)
