As I had enjoyed making the padfolio, I decided to make a postcard size one for all the birthday girls. Hopefully, they have all received them by now.
My second task this week has been to make the 1” squares for a swap I joined on the Textile Challenges group. The first batch of nine squares is for Carol of Postcards and Stuff, the owner of the group, in her colour choice of purple and turquoise. I decided to use different techniques to create each square. Laid out on their own they looked very unexciting.
Then inspiration struck! Last week I had received, amongst other things, a tag, so what better way to display these squares than on a tag?
I scrunched up purple tissue paper and glued it to heavyweight watercolour paper, cut out a tag shape, punched a hole in the top and used yarn in place of string. I also stuck a label on the front of each tag with details of the technique I had used. Carol was very pleased with them.
I have since completed a set for Judy in pink, not one of my favourite colours, but I was surprised at the amount of pink items I could find in my stuff. Just emerald and metallic to make now.
