water and more water
blue satin, blue chiffon, frayed, stitching, beads, sequins.
here are a couple of journal quilts and another fabric page
This one is made of scrunched strips of lots of blue (and white) synthetics, which were sewn down, then zapped with a heat tool. I added the pebbly beads and shells to extend the watery idea.
This one used a piece of woven dark magenta woven wool fabric as the backing. I frayed the edges, then used squares of black japanese brocade and faux suede (which you might have seen in some recent ATCs). The beaded motifs were ones I bought from someone at AQC. The contrast is not good with all the shiny bits and the wool and suede. It looks very yummy in reality.
This is a fabric page I recieved from a friend yesterday, The leaves are handpainted lutradur and the stitching is beautiful. Thanks! My theme for this round robin swap is leaves, if you didn't guess.
