playing around with lutradur (fibre arts mixed media feb challenge)


Decided to make another fabric postcard today...this time playing around with black and white lutradur. I painted the lutradur with various shades of turquoise, blue, green and purple paints then stitched on it freely and carved into it with a heat tool. The original pattern to the background was like a log quilt pattern around the seed head images in the centre. I decided to cut out some more painted lutradur and fuse it on to the front so it looks autumnal and breaks up the lines...really like the texture of lutradur after it has burnt away...To buy lutradur just click on the purple lutradur link
