Experimenting....

12th April 2015

The sun is now shining after a day of high winds and rain!!

I have been browsing my craft books and watching a craft DVD which has inspired me to experiment....

.......a variety of threads cut up onto felt....


...covered in organza....


.....stitched in vermicelli free machining using silver metallic thread...


......after heating with a heat gun.....


.....an interesting surface, but would use more colours next time.

:::::::

Selection of organza in shades of blue/green and a piece of blue felt...



....after using the embellisher....


...an interesting surface, could be used for landscape work.

:::::::

Red felt and red/purple organzas....


...this time I only embellished the centre of the organza....


....lovely texture, think I would cut circles next time and decorate with beads!

:::::

A variety of threads cut onto felt....


.....covered in cling film....


....embellished....


.....I prefer using net to cling film, again I like the texture.

::::::

This time a sandwich of silk tops and soluble fabric....


.....free machined in silver metallic thread...


.....after rinsing in warm water....



....rather like this effect.

::::::

I sprayed some Bondaweb backed fabric with water and sprinkled Brusho .....


.....sadly, the result when dry! 


Think I will use less water next time!

:::::::

I used some of my hand dyed stash to play....


...some stitching...


.... the finished card.

Made some bunting for our park Fun Day.

Cut up some 'inches' from my stash.
