Spring Garden

I have been busying myself with some more framed work, I got all over excited with an idea and decided I had to follow it through to a finished piece. I had been doing some research for my little pattern project  making some drawings and doing some initial work based on some photos from a trip to RHS Wisley when I decided I had to try the shapes I was drawing in glass (now there's a surprise...), with patterns on in the same way as I pattern my dragonflies. And this is what I came up with

It is in a white frame, just photographed on a black background (hoping for chance to have a proper "photoshoot" with it next week) but im sure you get the idea ! 

As you can see its not just glass, I have been playing with metal clay, fine silver and sterling silver too. Great fun as it has been a while since Ive had chance to use metal clay and I really enjoy the different effects you can get with it.

I think this is my favorite bit (dont tell the other flowers that though !!) I think Im going to make another flower in this style and work it up into a pendant. One of the best things about doing this has been all the other ideas and tangents it has generated that are now crowding around in my head. I cant wait till next week and some time in the studio to work on them.

Your flowers are SO very beautiful. This framed work would look so lovely in my daughter's bedroon. Actually, no! It would look lovely in MY bedroom!

I live quite near Wisley, I must make a visit some time. My mum and my in-laws go frequently and always rave about it.

Loving this new direction in your work.
Kristin :)

Thanks Kristin, Deb & Ele :))

Kristin, Wisley is lovely especially if it is a nice day, I love going to sketch and take photos there. There is also *whistles innocently* a nice restaurant / cafe that does very good cakes... er, so I've been told :))

Hi Becky...your work is lovely!
I like the frame idea.

I loved the OWOH 2011 adventure so much I've decided to re-visit the many blogs on the list. I missed so much in my rush to get through the list the first time.

I hope you will find a moment to visit my blog again, too.
I'm looking for new friends.
I'd be honored if you decide to follow my blog.
Warm Hugs,
