Autumn felted scrapbook finished (FAMM challenge)


front felted cover with the felted heart, beads and stitching


back felted cover with stamped image, french knots and lots of texture

black and copper powder rustic cover contrast with digi pages

Managed to finish my felted scrapbook today. To the front I have added a felted heart that I made a while ago and this also has some salt dough beads..thought it really went well with the earthy tones of the cover. On the back cover I have stamped onto some brown paper which took on fabric qualities the more I scrunched it up....it reminds me of the heather. Both felted covers have lots of different material felted in using my embellisher eg. brown fruit netting, chiffon, wool roving, metallic threads etc. The inside cover is painted with copper powder added whilst the paint was wet..really like this copper powder and I use it on lots of projects a bargain for 50p! I like the contrast between the very tactile cover and the modern digi scrapbook pages inside. I have entered this into the Fiber Arts Mixed Media challenge which this month is favourite thing..great site to check out if your into textiles.
