CD sizes mini crofts!!

Well lots of bits and bobs this week, all however with a theme.

Over the past year I have made more steps to get myself 'out there' and this has been paying dividends!
I have submitted four CD sized pieces for the Inchmore Gallery winter exhibition.
This is a lovely idea where mini artworks are displayed inside clear CD cases. The finished pieces are all priced affordably and make great Christmas gifts.

I visited the gallery last weekend and met Jane Owen Inglis the gallery owner, both to drop off the CD sized pieces and three other large canvas collages which were accepted for their winter exhibition.

cd sized sewn crofts

the Inchmore is a beautiful airy gallery converted from a lovely old church.
It has a wonderful presence and sense of history and is set near the shores of the picturesque Beauly firth in northern Scotland. I am delighted Jane was so enthused by my work and really appreciate the opportunity to show my work in such a fantastic setting.
The winter exhibition opens on the 22nd of October. I will post details nearer the time for anyone who fancies a trip to a lovely part of the world.

My mini crofts are made from sewn paper, silk and some fabric paints, a bit of everything in other words!

Finally as a little teaser here is a WIP photo of one of my pieces which will be in the winter exhibition.
Work in progress

I will share the finished Mr Fox soon, he does look a little different now in his full winter coat :)

  5. How cute and what a great idea! I love that size! Perfect for gifts, yes. I'm sure yours will fly off the shelves (or walls ....) Mr Fox is looking very impressive already!

  6. What a wonderful idea to exhibit the minis in the CD cases. Love the crofts. The gallery is certainly a beautiful building, but it saddens me that it is no longer a church. Must be a history there. I can't wait to see your finished fox painting. So far it looks gorgeous.
