C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 10 pink and green

The challenge this week is to create a project in lime green and pink at C.R.A.F.T.

I decided to a doodle girl with a Klimt influence. I am a big fan of the work of Gustav Klimt having seen an exhibition of his in Brussels in 1987. My dad was working out there at the time with I.B.M. and it was the first exhibition I remember having a big impact on me - probably
the reason I went into textile design at Art School.

Pay C.R.A.F.T. a visit to see what the rest of the D.T.
have been up to this week. Also just look at what you could win......

we are having a wee change this week with a challenge for a fortnight - give you all a little extra time - aren't we this weeks entry is due in by Wed 5th Aug 8.00pm GMT.

We are also looking for new DT members.....join in the fun!
