Little Stamped Books/ATC's Received/Possum on a Full Moon

Here's what I made with some of my dyed fabric. They are only little - about 5" x 3 1/2", and I have sewn a signature inside with 3 sheets of pink paper. The fabric for the front and back cover was from my dyed fabric with an additional stamped piece added to the front cover. For the closure, I braided some yarn and wrapped it around a button. These were inspired by a DVD by Sandra McCall, called Fabricadabra.



More lovely ATC's received!! 1. Beautiful embellished ATC from Waltraud. 2. Gorgeously textured ATC from Peggy. 3. Soooo pretty and in my favourite colours, from Fabienne. Thankyou very much - they are all wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



















Possum on a Full Moon
Isn't this just beautiful?! My 11 y/o son made it for a 3D project for school. It is hanging up in our living room - he is soooo clever!!!!

Shirley Goodwin said...

Lovely work, Dianne.

There's no one "right" way to dye fabric, just lots of techniques, and all dyers teach it slightly differently.

PS Fuchsia and turquoise mixed together makes a lovely purple.
