The Fiber Art Friends Group are making books by swaping pages with each other. My first swap is a page for Carol of Textile Tales's Journal and she has chosen Creamy Colours. I usually work using quite strong colours, so this is quite a challenge for me. This was a bit of practice using creamy colours with the Embellisher machine(Janome's Xpressions). I'm afraid the pale colours don't show up very clearly. Below is a detail of the piece. Since taking this photo I have used this piece to make a brithday postcard for Francois of Creatilfun. But I'm not going to show you this one until it is on it's way to France.
I have also started working on my Charms this morning.
Tomorrow I'm going to Chester again, so I don't think there will be much work done when I come home. I can't wait to continue with my Paper and textile experimants, which will have to wait until Thursday.
I have decided to use this as a base for my TAST challenge this week. It's Polycotton material and again transfer painted with additional stamping with gold acrylic paint.
