textile box update

Well, I wasn't at all happy with my little textile box which I had last posted about so I decided to alter it. I took my trusty heat gun to it, added some beads, more organza and a lovely little bird in a cage sitting on a fabric bead all stitched inside the 'birdhouse' which is what it is now. In reality, it doesn't look like a torn old bag as it does in the photo but its hard to capture the true colour and texture. I'm a lot happier with it as it is now but think a lot more of these will be produced/developed. :0)))) cLick the image for a more detailed view if you wish.

well I love your work so much I always lick the images whether it says click or lick lol
You certainly need to enlarge the photos to appreciate the amount of work and detail this involves. Delicate and dreamlike... Glad to be back online- have missed all the wonderful creations.

I love your textile work, Carrie, it is so delicate and detailed, yet so... emotive? I can't think of a good word! I am enjoying seeing all of the things that you are creating- they really are art.
