Tattered Inspirations

Markets - we will keep you informed as we have no idea when we will be able ot go to the Old Bus Depot due to their rennovations. once I know I will pop it here :)

The business is only tiny and is not in any way out to make lots of money but rather to offer products to compliment the usual supplies available by big companies.

The Design Team Rachel Walsh, Belinda Comerford, Kathy Marchant, Daniella Tassone and Suzie Lowe creatively use the products to show people what can be done - and I treasure their input and design work immensly.

Thank you for dropping by, we aim to encourage and inspire you to do something different out of your comfort zone, in new and exciting ways.

Goddess, Raindrops and Promise

Hi everyone

Yesterday I took some 8x10 inch canvas boards and set about creating three mixed media canvases based on Brian Andreas writing. I must say I am so pleased with them.

And I also have to say I love his writing - Brian Andreas - I am thinking there are a few more of these canvases to come - just because I enjoy then so much.

The gorgeous ladies are from http://thesumofallcrafts.blogspot.com/ which is a wonderful resource of images - free and available.

I have used on all canvases paint, paper, ink, impasto, stencils, buttons, photos, plus individual embellishments including wood, lace, string, punch outs, pearls, bling, flowers and cameo embellishments, gold paint and gold leaf......

I do hope you enjoy these:




Please email me if you are interested in purchasing an original canvas..... $60 including postage (Australia) or plus postage everywhere else.............although 8x10 prints will be available on etsy soon for roughly $12 each plus postage.... now whether I will make cards of them who knows?

Thanks for looking - please let me know what you think

With love
