Flower Book next stage



The next stage of my fabric flower book,I think my mojo,s back girls lol,I worked on these yesterday,this is just the bare bones,at least i have made a start,I found the images i wanted then had to transfer them onto fabric i used Tyvek for this as an experiment,Tyvek is a tough paper made of polyethylene fibres,rot resistant and water resistant,i was really pleased with the outcome,its got a very soft effect.Lucky that it came in A4 sheets so went through the printer great after ironing it onto the freezer paper.

Now comes the creative part of finding and making arty pieces to attach onto each page,then backing them,I think i will use a heavy watercolour paper for this,painting it up first,then maybe poems or words onto that.

But the most exciting piece for me will be to make the covers,I have an idea in my head for that,maybe a wrap around its just working out how to lol.
Can you tell i,m excited haha,it really get me on a high,mad i know but thats me :-]

Morning Pattie, each page has it's own beauty and individuality. You have used all your different skills here to make a wonderful collage of flowers. Send me some of your mojo I lost mine.
