March Madness

Have been having fun just playing with tissue paper and paints. Have decided that this piece will eventually become a vessel. When I don't know. Really busy at moment and regrettably not enough time to paint, stitch and play.

Another box. This time inspiration came from African jewellery. The base fabric is tissutex paper coloured with coffee. The box still has a slight smell of coffee - very pleasant. Again this box has handstitching on it to embellish it and hand made cords and tassels.

This box was inspired by the theme circus. It is made from silk paper that I made myself then embellised with hand stitching and handmade cords.
I love to make boxes like this but each from a different inspiration.
