Demo via skype in St Petersburg

It was 4.30 am in Melbourne and I presented a ribbon embroidery demonstration via skype to a VIP event at NeedleDelux in St Petersburg, Russia.   The focus for this demonstration was to look at how to create layered effects in two different styles when working on painted backgrounds.  Here are the two ribbon embroidery projects I presented:

The backgrounds were painted first, the background petals and leaves were created with ribbon stitch to create depth.  I use combinations of organza or silk ribbon (these ribbons are 7mm).  The front petal of the violet is a ruffle, made with 13mm silk ribbon.

Silk Ribbons and roses…what am I doing??

Silk Ribbons and roses…what am I doing??  If you’ve read most of the posts to date, I’m busy painting on a variety of projects, so what do I do when I need a break? I spend time in my rose garden.  I always share my garden with my online friends and followers, and I’ve written and posted about it my blogs before…but this is where I relax and have space.  My beautiful roses were in full bloom when I got home from Thailand inn November 2012; but sadly because of the heat now in January, my garden is not happy.  So to brighten my day, I’ve gone to look back on my photos from last November, and I’ve been inspired to work on an silk ribbon project I started last year.

Creating art in art with porcelain and ribbon embroidery

This project was finished last year, where I creating art with porcelain and ribbon embroidery, but it entailed a lot of problem solving along the way.  Sometimes I like to create a mini artworks within an artwork, so I painted a small porcelain shoe with raised paste  roses and gilding, added gold pen work rose buds, and filled the opening of the shoe with a bouquet of silk ribbon embroidered flowers to complement the paint work.  All of the colours in the embroidery bouquet reflect the colour you see reflected off the gold paint and off the white white porcelain which is why it is more harmonious.  But this project wasn’t going to be as simple as I thought!!

Here is the porcelain shoe
