Bluebell Gray inspiration

Bluebell Grey cushions available at Tara Interiors next door to Handmade Happiness
 I love these cushions. The Bluebell Grey artist is Fi Campbell who paints her designs which are then printed on to linen. These colours would be good the year round.

Vicki Hunt, whose bird pictures I showed you the other day paints directly onto fabric and the results are great.

 So I've had the idea of painting onto linen and turning the painted fabric into little things for the shop. Purses for instance. The shop lacks purses and handbags. But any purses and handbags I sell must be very individual and have the right amount of quirkiness. So painted linen, maybe further embellished with the odd button or snip of Liberty fabric. It could work...

Do paint your faces on things, they are just so wacky/clever/original.
