Travel around the World "venice" challenge




I am taking part in a travel swap on Katrins blog (see link on the blog list to the right). This month we have to create a piece with the theme Venice. I loved doing loads of layers to these pieces. My friend Linda (check her blog in my list) gave me some gold chiffon so I have sewed this along with some pink netting over the image of Venice. You cant really see the shimmer of the chiffon from the photo but the texture is lovely and it also subdues the image slightly. I have stamped the word venezia on acetate and sewed that on. The background is painted and stamped. Now I have to decide which one to send!! The next swap is on the theme Peking and participants can sign up on Katrins blog now.
