My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Punchneedle embroidery

You know how I love to try different things to stretch my creativeness if you have been popping by my blog for a while and I just had to share this with you. Punchneedle embroidery is the simplest (and quickest) embroidery I have ever tried.
It is so easy to create your own design just by going with the flow and changing thread as you go. I had no design planned for this piece... it was just meant to be abstract colour but looking at it closely now it looks a bit like a flower...tee hee... don't know how that happened but hey I am well impressed. If you haven't tried punchneedle embroidery before you really must have a go... it's so simple even DG can do it (and enjoy it I might add). There are how to videos on you tube if you need to see how easy it is and to get you started. Although I am only a novice with this medium there is some amazing artwork to be found online and patterns too if you need to use them. I prefer to just play... why don't you try could amaze yourself like I did!!
