Flower using layering, printing and dried flower bookmarks!

29th July 2013

I started the day printing fabric and paper backgrounds ready for future projects.

                             I used these to print, the leaves and grass give a lovely delicate print.

A selection of fabrics, cotton, calico and scrim.

Hand made papers with different textures.

                                            I then used my dried flowers to make bookmarks.

When I looked at Unit 3 I decided to use some of my purple dyed fabric to bond, layer and free machine.

Before machining

Stitched and  embellished with tiny black beads in the centre.

I think I will needle felt and make a cushion tomorrow.
