Mothers Day, a Birthday and Creativity....

11th March 2018


Yesterday the afternoon was sunny after a very wet, misty morning so we went down to Mevagissey for supplies...

..the Harbour...



....so many villages look like this in Cornwall.


>>>>

Today we went out to Heligan to celebrate Mothers Day and Lesley's birthday...



....lunch was delicious then we went back to the barn to be creative!

I made this design for a cut away piece...


...traced it....


....put it at the back of layered organzas as a stitch guide....


....stitched using gold metallic thread....


....after cutting back with a soldering iron BUT I cut back too much on the triangles and resorted to cutting with small scissors!!!


Think I will make a stamp with this design.

Karen showed us how to layer papers, top layer of serviettes, any papers really. A piece of tissue is coated with a diluted PVA glue, then a layer of other tissue, and repeat until there are 4/5 layers. Leave to dry then coat with acrylic wax, leave to dry then this paper 'fabric' can be stitched.



Will show more tomorrow if the internet is ok!!
