Crikey its a steaming hot day here, mother nature has really turned it on for us, fine and a high of 31 degrees celcius (88 degrees farenheit for my overseas friends!) so we're celebrating the day by having lots of swims! And a quick visit to the park to burn some excess energy!
I found these rusted metal stump caps (or ant caps) years ago under an old house I previously owned which was an old Queenslander on stumps.
I've always saved them, with the intention of using them in my art, and have recently become really inspired by some textile artists I've been following, including Natures Whispers and Ro Bruhn Art. I love textile art and I love rusty things, so I covered the rusty stump caps in fabric and immersed them in water. Here they are sitting out to dry. I've since opened them up and the results are fantastic!!! Watch this space, more to come soon!
