Lynda's Fabric Page


Since the boys went back to school I have been so busy! For the last couple of days I have been working on Lynda's page for Fiber Art Friends fabric page swap. I painted the black fabric with a patterned sponge roller, sprinkled it with black/silver embossing powder and zapped it with the heat gun. Then I free motioned some grids over the fabric. I then added a frame made out of 1" white squares, which were made out of tissue paper bonded to felt and rubbed some red treasure gold over the tissue paper. The flower in the centre was cut out of the tissue paper fabric and I satin stitched around the edges. I'm really happy with how it turned out. Hope you like it Lynda.

Its wonderful Dianne. The background fabric looks really interesting and then the flower in the centre of the white squares really sets it off. Look forward to receiving it. Its the addition of 'Treasure Gold' that finally clinched it for me - but I didn't realise they made it in red too! Something else to put on my wish list - you can never have too much Treasure Gold :))

Nice page, Dianne. The background is really great and makes a wonderful setting for the squares and flower.

It's fabulous. I really like the little touches of red here and there and the red highlights on the tissue squares.
