Experimenting with my Embellisher.....

6th October 2015    

My day began with a little housework-BORING!!!

I needed to shorten some trousers for my trip -short legs!!

Then I decided to watch....


......my  Myfanwy Hart Embellisher DVD's.....




....I was inspired to embellish this piece of fabric(man made)...


.....placed on a piece of felt to stabilise....


.....lovely texture...



.....embellished  onto  piece of viscose/linen....



....back...



....added oddments of fabrics, silk, hessian, scrim and linen....


....after embellishment, love the textures....


....begging for stitch!



I was really enjoying this....


.....found a piece of silk....


...placed on felt to stabilise and embellished....



....love the texture and will probably use in a sea picture.

Now 'on a roll'....

.....selected pieces of my indigo dyed fabrics and embellished onto calico....



....think I will take this on my trip and Kantha stitch in white and indigo threads!

Such a brilliant, quick way to make a new fabric......

Think I have mentioned before that I belong to an on-line group , Be Creatively, and the prompt for October was 9 paper squares....

.....this is my interpretation of the prompt using my own papers from my stash....







.....I have really enjoyed working this prompt, thank you Myfanwy Hart!
