My Creative Space






Thanks so much for all your lovely comments last week about my banksia stencil! 
Nothing really new this week for MCS – I've just been playing with the prints and screenprinting I did last week. With the print, I wanted to create a mixed media piece but this is still work in progress because well... it's bloody hard! Ooops, no don't report my blog please! :) Just getting the balance and selection right has been so challenging. Anyway, when I couldn't look at the paper any longer I was embroidering and beading a new brooch. This one has a base screenprint from the same banksia stencil from last week that really didn't work. So I decided to spruce it up a bit with some colour and texture. I like it - a bit gothic, isn't it?! Oh, and I put a heart in there for you, Kirsty!

To see more Creative Spaces, or to join yourself, visit Kirsty's here.

P.S. (I've got a Paying it Forward going on - see just below this post. Feel like playing?)

I just love it and I am sure so many chests out there are heaving with anticipation of being adorned with your finery.

Looks like you have been having fun!

If I wasn't already trying to finish my PIF pressies, I would join, but then keep ending up at the bottom of the list and I am feeling very naughty and must finish them!

I love the brooch, Not goth at all. Bet it's sparkles, just a little bit. :)

The brooch looks gorgeous and lots of hard work. It's a fabulous result from reusing something else that didn't quite work out properly... or perhaps this was meant to happen after all?!

Cindy said...

Some serious embroidery dedication there...it's really lovely Kylie :-)

Good work Kylie. Push through, if it's difficult, the results will be worth it. Your stuff is beautiful.

PS. I am already involved in a pay it forward. Thanks anyway. I thought you had to wait to receive your gift before you paid it forward though. Better check that one out, I could be in trouble!

Love the yellow and white in your space! I'm always happy to see some printing, since I'm delving into that myself.

What a great print. I love that zingy yellow and the grey together, beautiful.

Kylie your brooch is beautiful. I love the colours and the iggledy piggledy-ness of it. Does that make sense?
