working with fabric for a change (UKS & FAMM challenges)


My friend Linda has posted a word challenge over at UK Stampers so I was determined to have a go and wanted to combine the words with fabric somehow as I havent done a fabric piece for awhile. The january challenge over at Fiber Arts Mixed Media is to use cotton, threads & paint.

The background for this piece is a print that didnt work but I like the way it looks ghostly..have added watercolour paints and stamped butterflies over this. I printed off the digi layout on to canvas and have surrounded it by lace..finished it off with a nice romantic stamped heart and lace bow.



I combined the photo of the trees in fog with one of my background paintings, a romantic image from magic moonlight and made a digi layout and then printed this off to combine it with fabric for the above piece


Today we have had freezing cold fog everywhere and I took a photo of the trees at school shrouded by fog. I have spent most of the day with my gloves on as its that cold..hope its warm where you are.

Nice piece-I love the photo of the tree in the fog. Thanks for updating me on Elmo-I really loved the color on him.

This is very romantic! Love Elmo too - i grew up on Sasame street & made sure my kids did too. Your school jotter page is great too, I agree with most of those things but isn't learning so much better now!

Ooo, this is gorgeous, Lorraine, and yes, ghostly would be a proper term, the end result is lovely.

We have fortunately plus degrees today. In fact, we had fog today as well. I get so happy when it gets warmer.
So beautiful your work. :))
