Frosty Midnight Garden Canvas - Powertex Mixed Media

This is actually an unfinished piece of work drawing from my Level 3 Powertex training last month. I had got to the stage of my mixed media piece where it just needs some paints and metallic, having already done all my dry brushing. I loved the frosty look of it, and all the delicious grainy textural shapes emerging, so I though I'd photograph it at this stage as well as when it's complete. Can you imagine this amazing mixed media effect on notebooks and jewellery boxes?! Anyway, enjoy the photos , I'll be back with more when it's done :)


Patchwork Teacup Cushion

We've been having a busy time here at Samantha Braund Arts, tackling all kinds of media! This is my latest textile piece, a patchwork teacup cushion for my mother's birthday. She was very much the inspiration behind the theme as she loves her tea lol. I went with cosy English cottagey style cotton fabrics, and created stencils for the cups and mugs from my own drawings. Each block contained multiple different textures, and I particularly love the linen-esque fabric for the labels. I also incorporated textile painting - translucent watercolour style to add shading and depth to the cups, then the opaque hearts stamped onto the labels. I am totally in love with patchwork, and we all enjoyed picking our favourite cup/mug :)
