2 new covered journals – the top one is a collage of various hand printed cotton fabric pieces with a heat transfer printed ribbon and the flower motif is a digitised design which I’ve extended by using scrunched and frayed fabrics.
Below: polyester satin fabric – heat transfer dyed & stitched. The centre panel is a collage of metallic scraps with the flower free embroidered on dissolvable.
Saturday at the Designing Women meeting, Juliet showed us how to felt a vessel. (mine above) Unfortunately It’s not thick enough so I’m not sure what I’ll do with it – might have to cut it up and use the felt in other projects.
Before the felting we went for a walk around Piney Lakes – a lovely bush area where our meeting place is – to take photos and gain inspiration. Below: the bark of a cork tree which I ‘d never seen before.
My DH has managed to tear the cartledge in his knee and is on crutches so I’m having to run around for him. I hope it comes good without further treatment. It’s a busy week – I’m teaching another Painting & Printing with Procion Dyes workshop on Saturday and we’ve got friends coming for lunch on Sunday.
