Sheer Dream (Fibre Arts Mixed Media Challenge)


Very late last night I suddenly had an idea of what I wanted to make for this months "sheer" challenge for FAMM. I have layered an old book page under a sunflower transparency then added lots of layers of burnt black lutradur, burnt needlefelted chiffon and burnt lace on top to create lots of dimension and texture. The word dream is stamped onto bondaweb then also distressed slightly with my fabric master heat tool. Be sure to check out the other entries at Fibre arts and mixed media...its great to work with fabric again!
