At home with Amy

Well I haven't posted in since last year - very strange saying that. I arrived back in Banbury on Friday night, and instead of unpacking, I couldn't wait to get back into my Art. I had two projects on the go at the weekend, and for a change they're not for sale, just some craftiness for me to have instead.

My first piece is a framed piece of Artwork. I had lots of fun with marbling inks, which I must admit, left me with a very messy sink. I used the marbling inks for the background colour and then painted on white doilies ontop to give a cute, vintage type effect. The photos aren't great, but it does look good up on the wall!

My next weekend project was my 'Sex and the City' cushions. I was out with the girlies at Craftwoman before heading back to Oxford and picked up the coolest shoe fabric and lacey/polka dot ribbon. I knew I wanted my cushions to be made with this. Anyone who knows me wells, knows about my little shoe addiction, and these are a great little addition to my flat!!


  1. oh amy i need you to come and help redecorate my house, i'm having such trouble 'pulling everything together'

  2. What are you doing with everything?? Have you got all your bits and pieces, just trying to figure out how to lay it all out? - lol I'm thinking of a career change - I don't know why I didn't do that Fashion&Textiles course or Interior Design arghhh!!!
