Tuesday, 27 January 2009

Unbelievable I know .. 2 updates in 2 days !! Well this morning I've been busy with fibres ..I've done a mini canvas & three ATC's (though not sure they're quite finished yet ... need to leave them for a while & come back to them.
I put a background on the canvas using pink tissue paper, ripped up & added in layers with PVA, I then gathered a few different colours of fusible fibre (angelina fibres) some ordinary wool fibres & some fantasy film cut into small pieces & bonded the lot together, ironing on the back & the front I then PVA'd this to the tissue on the canvas ... voila one fibre fusion canvas :)

Can you believe we're almost at the end of January already ? I was going to do a tag for each month of the year but instead I have used a 7 Gypsies Rubber Band Book & made a start. It has the two covers & 12 pages just perfect for a year book on a small scale :) .. you never know I might even keep it going until the end of the year ..let's hope so, it will be interesting this time next year to see what has happened that was expected or unexpected.
I suppose it's a bit like a diary only the edited highlights.
This is a picture of it so far.

I've been going through my old files & finding a lot of my older work & I have added them to the slide show below. I think it's very interesting looking back & realising how much your style has developed without you realising it .. take a moment to look back through one or two of your older albums & enjoy :o)
