A Card, Washing and Gelli Printing

31st January 2015

Where did January go?

Started the day washing some of the yarn bombing that we removed from the park yesterday....


....all clean and dry and packed away for next time!!


:::::

I was asked to make an anniversary card, the lady wanted a red heart and a key, I always worry when asked to make a card that my interpretation will not be acceptable....


....I decided to use machine embroidery on soluble fabric using gold metallic thread for the key....



.....and felted some Merino Fleece to make a large and smaller heart, then hand stitched using metallic gold and red thread, mounted on a dull gold card, and the lady loved it....phew!

This afternoon played with my Gelli...


...printed with my wooden block...


...onto a print I did a few weeks ago...



...blobbed...


....combed...



...printed tags...


....love the colours and textures, not sure what I will do with them yet!!!

Popped into my local charity shop and found these treasures, all for £1.75...


....enjoy the rest of the weekend.....
