Lace and foil

This lace has got painted Bondaweb fused to it, and foil added to reveal the texture of the lace.

lace as you have never seen it before

Here are a couple of the photos of painted Bondaweb before I adhered them to the various objects. It goes into an interesting texture when it is wet and dries like that. I used Jacquard textile paints mainly. Some Lumiere too.

Preparing to make collage postcards

I may have been quiet this week but I have been working! Today I was painting a silk scarf as a birthday present for a friend who recently lost her husband – I’ll post a photo of it tomorrow after I’ve given it to her. I’m pretty sure she doesn’t read this, but I’d better not risk it!

I’ve also been doing lots of painting Bondaweb, ironing it to fabric and other stuff, in preparation for making a lot of colourful collaged postcards. I love doing this – such bright colours and sparkly angelina and melting stuff – a bit of pyromania always gets me going! (I’m really behind on the symbols course – lesson 6 was posted on Tuesday and I haven’t begun lesson 4 yet!).

There are several elements to this collaging postcards bit. I adapted these from an embroidery course I did a year ago. These are chiffon scarves with painted Bondaweb fused to them, angelina and another layer of chiffon scarf on top of that – the whole lot is then ironed underneath baking parchment to fuse it all together.

colourful, sparkly fabric - more!

I will be cutting these up and adding them to other collage elements and fusing them all to a background fabric and then making postcards from them. Next element coming up tomorrow!

Water!

sea hanging in progress

This is the piece I made for the water element of the Elements in Fabric course. I haven’t quilted it yet – I need to get on with that. I think I should have a Official Finishing Month (a week won’t be long enough!) to finish off all the pieces I have hanging around.
