to get to grips with Maggie Grey's latest book Textile Translations. This is my interpretation of first "lesson"(it is step by step so easy to follow)
I was also impatient to try out one of the new spray colours I bought from Crafty Notions at Ally Pally(this one is Midnight Blueberry, more turquoise than I was hoping. Why are true blues so hard to find?)
Now I have to add a layer of sealant, so I'll think about that for a while. I am stopping myself from reading too far ahead, it is about time there was some discipline around here!!
I am also looking forward to taking part in the Fibre in-Form classes at the end of the month. Almost too much excitment.
Just for fun while I was scanning the sample I had a little play with a distortion layer in PSP.
The lettering is from a great blog called The Graphics Fairy
I too have been working from Maggies Book - I did not think there was a starting time to use it - but that the online classes will follow on from the book so a need to work on items in the book was important in the first instance - may be I have got it wrong. I love the pieces you have done esp the last one in PSP can you give more details of how you did it.
Lovely work, I have my book but have not started anything et
Ooh, loving these pieces already Pat.
I bought the Scarab Beetle colour in those sprays, along with the Autumn Gold and the ..... *LOL*
They are wonderful, the beetle one especially.
