Bamburgh Castle

I keep a sketchbook of flowers and leaves and other design elements for reference, very handy when designing these pieces of work.
I have an urge to paint….. and to sew in neutrals… but, commercial head on, these colourful pieces will make better cards. 

First sketches and ideas.

Starting to applique silks and use free motion embroidery to shade the castle on the sand dunes, surrounded by the sea and sky.
