Guess what !




First Steps , the start of my new project......
Dye'd white silk with brusho paints,brushed over with gold fabric paint.I may not iron out the creases i quite like it lol.
Cut 6, 4x4 inch felt squares

Ignore the felt square colours as they will be covered.

GUESS what its going to be,definitly not a quilt ............The first person to guess i will send a fabric handmade gift.

Will update as i go,AFTER i get the correct answer lol(thats if you want to play)......I thought after the quilt i had'nt got any inspiration or the will to start something else,I know i have to keep myself going,as its hard to get back into it,also i live on my own and need to keep occupied,so rummaging through my stash of materials I thought if i dye some fabrics it will help to maybe give me an idea,which it has,I have made a couple of these before,but i want this one to be more arty with a lot more going on in the design,dont quite know what sort of design yet,it should just evolve as i go along,hopefully :D

Ooh something new! I love the effect you have gained with the silk and I like the creased look as well. Is it to be a journal or book?

Pattie, this is gorgeous. I contacted Brusho to see if they have a distributor here and still waiting for an update from them.

I am thinking you will be making a book of some sort, perhaps incorporating some more of the fabric paper somewhere- maybe another tag book?

Love your creations!

Pattie said...

No Rena,another good idea ! let me know if you get answers from Brusho,if you dont have any luck maybe i can help by sending a sample for you to try.

No ones guessed so far !Jan was nearest saying it could be a book,but what sort of book?
