Green Eyed Dragon

I've been collecting neckties for about a year now; and have just 1 finished project incorporating them! (a bag that I use frequently!) I have 3-4 other pieces in various states of completedness some of which I have blogged about. I love the crazy patterns, designs and colours and I especially love how the colours look together -as they hang off the old wooden ladder suspended from the beams in my studio....

Here is a little something that I'm just letting happen with my most recent purchase...

Green Eyed Dragon - WIP

I'm not trying too hard on this and there's not a lot of forethought - not even a sketch...which is unusual for me... I'm enjoying the process.

 Detail-
 including vintage shadow work and label from back of dragon tie


 Gold Lined Cloud Detail
 - metallic fabric scraps, and worn denim

Off to do some gardening before it gets too hot.........

Oh I love that dragon, keen to see what you do with this Sandi.
You asked about the grey squirrel on my blog - well, some love them and others consider them a major pest. They have been too strong a competitor for our native red squirrel (which really is a beautiful little thing) and they do a lot of damage to young trees, but they are so intelligent and great fun!

Hello.. this is SO beautiful. I love ethnic... especially Asian... especially this kind of textile collaging. WOW! Gorgeous!

And thank you back for adding a link to me on your side bar! :)

I love what you have done with the denim! I have been looking for a clever way to patch a pair of jeans for my daughter. A way that would be artistic and unique...I have found my inspiration! Thank you
Love the dragon too!
