I've finished it !

You know the saying 'better late than never' well I guess that this applies to me as I've just finished the project I started at the ArtsyCraft workshop just over 2 weeks ago ! In all fairness I have been on holiday for a week in between, that's my excuse anyway !

This is the front page, I love the image which is transferred onto fabric. The flower is made from PaperArtsy Crunchy paper, Kraft Glassine paper and a Basic Grey button.

This is what it looks like opened out, all of the panels are double sided, I've not photographed every one as I would still be here this time tomorrow ! So instead I've just shown you some highlights.

The main image on this panel is also an image transferred onto fabric. Lots of painting, layering and sewing !

This image was stamped onto material, painted using Fresco Finish paints and then covered with a piece of gauze which was burnt off using a soldering iron ! Had loads of fun zipping around the edge in a random fashion with the sewing machine too !

More painting and layering on this panel and the flower was made using a tea light ! I made this at home as didn't get round to it in the workshop and my other half was a tad concerned at the smell of burning !

I'm also entering this project into the Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge which is to use some brown.

  9. Staggeringly good Sue. This would have taken me a year not just a couple of weeks! Stamping onto the material sort of gives it a totally different feel and the sewing adds such texture. Thanks for sharing your amazing talent, hugs Buttons x
