Fabric Book Completed

Last Page...Anne Boleyn

I say completed but will put some beads and more ribbons on the spine later.......
I was sorry i used my Bind it all machine for this,I have to think it through more,I thought this way would work but not happy with it,although it will do.
I wanted to do more pages but the size of the wires wouldnt allow,i did the pages back to back too,its worked out quite thick........never mind its all a learning curve lol

Queen Victoria Page

Another page hot off the press lol,i,m on a roll with these.

Background fabric is a baby wipe dye'd turquoise/green,waste not want not lol,and just the usual embellishments,I coloured the dots with promarkers.

I rather like this image of Queen Victoria,not as pretty as her, in the film "The Young Victoria"... lovely movie.

Elizabeth 1 ....Page1

Elizabeth 1
Page 1 of my Fabric Book "Ladies in History"

Really enjoying this project,cant wait to start on the next page lol,I,m on a high !!

Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette.(loveee this image)
Fabric Book Cover,title will be "Ladies of History"

I know this is going to take me ages,i wanted something to get my teeth into,this is a start,each page will be fabric and depict a lady from the past,its something i can dip in and out of between other stuff,as long as my mojo stays with me i,ll be ok lol.

I have enjoyed dyeing the fabrics,lace ,matching up bits colourwise,and sewing,also colouring the buttons with alcohol inks and using things from my stash.little bit of fabric paper here and there ! to get this ink off my hands :-]

Holly's Notepad

This weeks work.........not work a pleasure lol

My Daughter in Law Karen took me to the Laura Ashley shop last sunday,she treated me to some Fabric remnants so i covered a large sketch book for her,keeps me occupied :-]

The smaller one is Fabric Paper,"Post It" notepad,for my other daughter in Law Holly who's into crafting as well but not made any Fabric Paper, she loves making cards.
I was going to make one Sherry suggested here but got sidetracked as usual.

Then with the odds and ends i made two ATC's for a friend.I ought to make more ATC's as i have a huge box of bits and pieces to use up,that should be fun lol.

Something different !

My Sons Birthday Card

A couple of weeks ago I bought QVC,s Todays Special Value, which was Tim Holtz Book "A Compendium of Curiosities" and a collection of his crafting materials,just couldnt resist,his work is awesome,He was over from the States to appear on QVC ,it was great to watch the master at work today i had a play,working from his book the waterstamping technique ,it didnt quite come out like his haha,but looked ok so thought i would make my samples into a card for my son, his birthdays next month,its always hard to do a mans card,Gary's into birds at the moment :-] so hope it works !

I used some stamps i had free with my subscription of Craft Stamper,I think the pocket watch was a freebee on that magazine as well.Quite enjoyed using paper instead of fabric for a change lol.
