…the bit I like best of all!
I got the idea for this technique from Kim at Nid-Noi and have just been playing around with different fabrics and seeing what happens.
You layer up Vilene Dissolvable (Solufleece) with Bondaweb and put your fabric on top, machine stitch in tramlines then steam. And what you end up with is a lovely scrunched up fabric.
I bonded foil to all of the pieces of fabric before stitching and steaming.
I usually like to ‘tidy’ my samples up and mount them as I think it can make them look better but in this instance because of the ruffled edges they look better as they are – so I will just have to restrain myself from making them neater. :)
Organza has been laid over the top of this one and then zapped after ‘crashing’.
Bronze coloured foil has been used for this one again with organza over the top and then zapped. I then lightly ironed on Fuse FX and applied gold foil on the surface and zapped again.
Did the same as above with this one using a copper coloured foil underneath and on top and on a plain red background.
Going to take the soldering iron to them next and see what happens. Great fun.
Am off to Enfield EG on Saturday to teach a workshop. Really looking forward to it.
And tomorrow? Well, I can think of better things I should be doing but ………
