PDCC 69 Inspired by ...Dina Wakley :)

I adore Dina Wakley's free exploration of colour and texture in her journals, and have even had the honour of 'stroking' one and exclaiming over it's beauty IRL!!!  So whilst on a hunt for some great colour stories for The Play Date Cafe Challenge I stopped by her blog and Dina very kindly let me use a section of one of her journal pages as inspiration.

I had to borrow Malc's camera to take the pics last night and the colours aren't as true in these images but I hope you get the idea!  I decided to take some blue and pink wool tops and wet felt them together.

Once this was dry I laid it onto some yellowy orange fabric and some text paper.  I added stitch and also stitched on some yarn...all very therapeutic, and touchy feely :)

Over at The Play Date Cafe there is a fantastic array of inspiration from our wonderful design team
and also from our guest designer this week - Julie Day :)  We are sponsored this week by Wilson Designs so head on over to the cafe for a good mooch.


  1. OH MY GOOOODNESS! I just love this piece! I love the music background--and all of that stitching! OH BEAUTIFUL! You are so amazing, Sarah:) LOVE YOU!

  2. The inspiration is just that - inspiring - but your work is gorgeous!!

  3. Oooh, I like it, looks like it needs to be stroked :)

    No idea what I'll be doing - maybe I'll dig out the acrylics ;)

  4. Ooooh lovely !!!!!!!!
    I would love to touch it. Felting is tops, no pun intended.

  6. Such a fantastic inspiration photo, Sarah! LOVE it to pieces! And all the stitched circles, on your piece, has lots of ideas, for layouts, churning in my head. Thanks so much!
