What I have been doing.

Well this is what I have been up to. I have woven the dyed fabric I had done the other day and now I printed over with all home made stamps. I have made the diamonds and the colour stamps before and you have seen these in the recent stuff I have been doing.Today I tried adding in a flower shape as I do so love daisies and gerberra's, I had them in my wedding bouquet. I also used some of Ellie's blocks to print dimamonds and dots within them.
And the point of this piece, which is another variation on a theme is to make a Traci B style book. I used the other piece of dyed fabric to latch hook a spine. This is going to be my sketchbook for Unit 3 Colour, for C+G, I am going to take it away with me to work into. When I get back I will make a second mandala on the topic "SELF" to go with the one that I did a few weeks ago on Friendship. I am going to go with red and green again as this is what I used for friendship, and then the two will make a pair.
Can't wait to do the signatures!
