Foil and fabric
I have been reading about Lynda's adventures in foil, and since I have been thinking about industry and rusty metal for my C+G thins month I decided to have a go. Now not being of Lynda' vast wealth!(giggle!) I haven't got Golden gels etc so i used trusty PVA from the pound shop onto muslin and it worked a treat! I also mixed the PVA with the acrylic paint I painted on, now this could do with another coat but other than that it worked real well. I also layed up some textured wallpapers to use for the challenge on TC, my group, this month as we are doing the Quilting arts True colours challenge this month and so I have been thinking about a piece where the true colours come through from beneath, a hidden Gem? So that's what the other bits are for.
Then of course the embellisher I have made a piece from the off cut of the foil paper and added it with the automatic stitches on the Janome memory craft that I have from school. I then embellished the felt backing through to the front which has given it a real nice sheen. I love the embellisher. I also made a quick piece based on the febuary Calendar girls picture, I don't know if i'll use this one as I have something else in the pipeline but I had so much fun with it. I appliqued the petals which were acrylic felt onto a pink piece of acrylic felt and added some silk for the centre and leaves and stems. What fun, I don't know what else i am going to do with it but i can see lots of samples!
