Scribble Picnic - Boats

Living on the south coast, what could be more appropriate than boats, which is the next Scribble Picnic challenge.

As I happen to be working on a series of textile seascapes at the moment, there are three small boats in this piece which I hope counts.  This is a work in progress piece of textile art and still needs embellishing to give more depth to the sand and surf.

If not then I do have a jolly fabric boat which I did recently, again all fabric.

Boats galore on our host Michael's page.

Scribble Picnic - Umbrella

Umbrella is the third challenge with Scribble Picnic.  Something a little different, fabric, paint and stitch.

Hand painted fabric, with the exception of the polka dotted umbrella, and then all stitched.

Doing a series

Although I did not realise it at the time, but I unconsciously do art in a series.  In the past I have drawn little individual books of birds, cupcakes, cats and dogs.  I have loads of sketchbooks with specific themes in each.  I have not really done this with my textile art before, but things are changing.

I love curves (and straight lines) so have started free cutting my fabric without much thought and putting them together again and adding lace, beads and top stitching. The results are these beach scenes.

More will be coming, as I have sold the top one at my local Hayloft gallery.
Update, now sold the bottom one as well.
