I've been playing around with backgrounds in my classes with Suzi Blu.... and these girls have taken on a different look with the new coloured background. Wasnt that happy with my background as it got a little muddy in areas...but I will get better with practice. Enjoyed the stamping and the glaze in the paint to give it more transparency. Just got to find a suitable quote for these girls now and then onto the wax!!!! Now that is something I have been wanting to try for ages. I wont get a chance to do anymore to this piece though for a few weeks as lucky me... I am off to visit my son in the UK for 2 weeks, leaving on Wednesday. I am so looking forward to spending some time with Matt, seeing where he now lives and works, going to the Horse of the Year show in Birmingham with him. I will take photos.....
I made these felted ATC's for a swap in one of my Yahoo groups. I have incorporated needle felting, dyed lace, free motion stitching, hand stitching, beading .... lots of fun making these.
Close up so you can see a bit more of the detail in these little ATC's. The swap was organised by one of the girls in our Creative Chix group after reading the article on felted ATC's in the latest issue of Cloth Paper Scissors.
So my fellow bloggers, I will be away from 1st October until the 17th October so wont be posting again until then (unless Matt has his computer set up at home for me to use????)
Take care and enjoy the onset of Spring and the beautiful warm sunshine.
