Mixed Media Miniature Art Works

Here are some of my latest pieces. They are made from a punch needle centre, set in a painted, papier mȃché frame. 
The punch needle embroidery is worked by punching each loop through the backing fabric using a hand tool to form a textured surface: just like making a miniature rug!

This is the frame and tool I use for working with. The picture above shows the front of the work, with the tool and embroidery threads.

This close-up shows the reverse, 'working side' of the fabric that you punch from. There is a very clear description of the technique on Wikihow called "How To Needle Punch".
