Folk Art

This is a small selection of some folk art pieces I have completed using one of the Folk It! kits.

The techniques are very easy (they have to be for me!) combining dot-painting with  simple brush strokes, and designs which you can mix and add to, to create your own unique designs.

The possibilities are endless and this is one of my favourite crafts at the moment, I can’t wait to learn the more advanced techniques.   You can find workshops and kits by following this link:  https://www.folkit.co

Enjoy 😊
