Here is the lovely Fabric Page I received from Emmy this morning. It is really lovely and I'm looking forward to putting all my pages together to complete the book very soon now. You should have your shortly Emmy it's in the post, so is my page for Sarah and all the postcards I finished. On to the next lot now.
This is a postcard I made using tissue paper and a piece of broderie anglaise. I'm very pleased with how this one has turned out. Playing with tissue paper is fun. My first attempt was not highly successful as I did not add enough water to the PVA glue and there was far too much shine on the finished work. I'm now thinning it out with more water and it works so much better and it has a lovely matt finish.
I added some stitching to this one and the result is quite pleasing. They were so much fun to do I have made a few more than I needed for my swap, but I have promised a couple of friends I would send them something and I will send one of these I think.
