Well, I can't believe how long it is since I last blogged, I have been busy finishing off my articles for issue 2 of Fibre and Stitch, but also hit with a horrible head cold, so everything seemed to take twice as long
I have been eager to have a play after reading Jean Littlejohns article in Stitch and seeing Lynda's wonderful creations on her blog Purple Missus using the painted bondaweb and foils.
I had some white felt, the pure wool type not the acrylic, and so decided to use this, cut it in half and ironed on the painted bondaweb, I then then covered with foil, great so far, only one problem, I don't have an Embellisher, DUH!!!
which means of course the colour of the bondaweb will not get pushed through from the back, and was total waste of paint and bondaweb, all was not lost, I decided to scatter some lilac Angelina over the surface of the foil, I then covered this with black crystal organza, and ironed the surface this is the result, all I can say is ooooh because its gorgeous.
I wish I could capture the shimmer on this, the purples must be from the Angelina, unfortunately it doesn't show the lovely peacock green colour that is shot through the piece, I can't wait to stitch into this.
