Her stunning illustrations made using paper really struck a chord with me and inspired me to seek out art created using different mediums for this week's Folksy Friday selection. All of today's choices are examples of textile art. I hope you enjoy the selection.
"Dad's Poppies" by Sheila Blakemore - needlefelted, with some beading and embroidery. I was drawn to the vibrant poppies.
"'Lovebirds' Wall Art" by made by lolly - I love the print on this fabric, which has been embellished with beading, buttons and hand-stitching.
"Butterfly Textile Wall Art" by Dizzy - the backing fabric is painted, and the butterflies are made from pink felts and floral fabrics and hand-stitched on to the backing.
"Field Poppy" by Odette's Shop - the background has been hand-dyed, and then embroidered using a mixture of machine and hand stitches.
"Hand-painted Lavender Lady" by Gracie's Garden Bazaar - lovely, whimsical hanging decoration, hand-drawn and painted on tea dyed vintage cotton, embellished with vintage lace and glass pearls, and filled with French lavender.
"Wedgewood Flora" by Bird's Eye- charming, embroidered canvas with felt and beads.
