My mailbox is overflowing with Surtex supplies! Yay!! We'll be at Booth 543 :)
A winning new pattern ;)
Sweet dreams winter, see you next year.
I was introduced to the Ruth B song, "Lost Boy" about two weeks ago and it has been on repeat in my head ever since. It was the perfect thing to listen to while I finished up this project.
"Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Wendy Darling,
Even Captain Hook—
You are my perfect story book
Neverland, I love you so,
You are now my home sweet home
Forever a lost boy at last"
I rounded out this collection with some ceramics and wood pieces. I looked to the water that surrounds Neverland to find the inspiration for the ceramic pieces. The bowl has directions to Neverland written inside, in case you have forgotten... Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning. Plus, I couldn't resist a porcelain paper boat night light.
Wendy Darling has a pet wolf in Neverland. When she comes back to the island, he finds her and they run into each other's arms and after that he remains by her side. I liked the idea of having her wolf as a nightstand to be a child's constant companion while they sleep.
All in all I really loved designing this collection, I'd definitely like to do more :)
And that's all, folks!
I headed into the jungle for the fabric part of this collection. Neverland is full of beasts! Lions, tiger, bears and wolves populate the island and of course there's that pesky crocodile that's always following Captain Hook looking for his next meal. We have Tiger Lily's teepee covered in it's own style of night time jungle camouflage. I love a garland and the felt-leaf vine garlands add an air of adventure. Then there's the drum pouf. Either for drumming or sitting.
Whatever floats your boat. Or canoe or whatever.
I have joined a new art collective called Finch & Foxglove! We are eight women from around the world and we will be showing at Surtex 2016.Read More
