As you can see from the side-bar, I have joined two Embellisher groups, Myfanwy and Dale's.
Myfanwy's challenge this week was Layers. I'm so new to this, but I had a lot of fun today creating layers with the embellisher. Another group I belong to is FiberArt Friends with yet another challenge which is experimenting with paper and fabric. So what better way to do it than with the Embellisher.
I used Sweet Papers that I had saved from my large Christmas tin of Quality Streets.
The sweet paper would not sink into the felt on it's own, so I decided to use strips of organza here and there to catch it in and this worked perfectly. I then cut it out and embellished again onto stretch velvet. I am pleased with this result and have started to make a book cover with it.
This is a closeup of the work.
