Padfolio/ATC's

I revamped the padfolio I had made earlier, and this is going to be sent to Carol for our Fiber Art Friends Padfolio Swap. The texture on it is created by painted vliesofix, and I've then rubbed LOTS of green and red treasure gold over the top. I added a favourite piece of fabric paper to the top of the padfolio and some rectangles down the side. Thought Carol might also like a book mark, so made one from the fabric paper - and added some fabric paper beads to the yarns. It looks so much better than before - and I really hope Carol likes it!!!


Today I made 4 x ATC's for swaps owed - one of them is for the theme "Green".
