Hi followers and friends. A special hello to my new followers. Welcome again to my little bit of blogland. Managed to get a good bit of weeding done last night so hoping to get some more plants in place today. The weather isn't so good, looks like rain, but that's OK.
Over at PaperArtsy Sue Carrington has been sharing some amazing projects. I have started my tag screen as well but it's not finished so I am going to share a project inspired by Sue's post using fabric
I have never done tie die so this was a new one on me but I followed Sue's instructions and ended up with this. Quite pleased with the mottled effect.
I stamped one of the ladies from LPC001 in black, masked her and then stamped a selection of small stamps from SIDD5, LPC001 and LPC022 in Colourbox Arctic Deep Chalk. New medium I wanted to try. Didn't know if it would work but it seems OK. Nice colour on the fabric.
I didn't have a precut mount like Sue used and thought I would like to mount this onto something. I cut a piece of card from a box and stuck my fabric to it. I embossed around the edge with gold embossing powder, spritzed with gold glimmer mist and added some buttons. Then for the background...... I tried a few things including some bits left from past projects but my little picture seemed to get a bit lost. So I went CAS.....
This frame is not quite right and a little bit big but I'm working with what I have on a Sunday morning. What do you think?? The card I backed it with is textured but that doesn't really show in the picture.
