Christmas timing is coming closer and I wanted to share with you what my little mermaid has been up to.  Last time I showed you my latest illustration and the little bags I embroidered and painted with it.  This week it is time for Poissondrieke to swim her way up to your screen (or hands).  I used a very fine quilting with natural shapes to surround her, from water bubbles to leaves.  And of course her hear straps are flooding around while she greats you with a smile. And although it is not common for a nautical creature to like flowers, Poissondrieke has a favourite!  The white Lilium Arum flower, which  has a shape between flower and leaf and knows herself to hide very well in shape, if it was not for the difference in colour ( and I think that’s why Poissondrieke likes her so much, the hide and seek part).  So here you have some of my embroidery quilted pouches with Poissondrieke :

~~ Whimsical illustration ~~ ‘Bollinhas a largar’

Standard

illustration ‘Bolinhas a Largar’ @ http://www.kuskat.be

I’m so happy to finally share with you one
of my new illustrations I made called ‘Bolinhas a largar’ red,
what means little dropping balls in Portuguese.
A little group of different characters stacked up one another and holding on to that.
Anyone want to give them a push so they drop?

This colourful illustration  was also one of the first drawings where I have been testing out these new inktense pencils.  They are very different from regular aquarelle pencils, they give a much brighter livelier colour, perfect for my kind of illustrations 🙂  And the great thing about them is, they can be use on fabric and they don’t wash out!  So I have been experimenting mixing the little dropping balls with fine embroidery quilting and painted illustration.

For the following pouches I have use my favourite technique of free motion embroidery or thread painting on a ‘sandwich’ of cotton fabric and batting.  It makes the surface more fluffy and adds a beautiful quilted relief to it.  The bag becomes also more sturdy.
