Shelagh and Dale have joined forces to push our creative brains a little further each week - textiles / art / design / sketch / draw / paint - who knows? We are starting on 1st July with a CHAIR - bookmark us and visit to see what we are up to - 5 mins from us three times a week - AUGUST will be TEAPOTS & SEPTEMBER will be LEAVES

last effort for chairs
Didn't quite finish up as I imagined but it has been an interesting month playing with an old chair in the garden. I think I like things more filled in myself but it has been a challenge. For my last little effort I sprayed three weights of Lutradur and stamped my stamp on the surface but rather than stitch I decided to use my creative versa tool (unlike Shelagh I do not own a mountain of tools) and mark make the circles.
As a result - I wonder why I layered up because the hot tool actually melded all layers together which negated the fact that I was planning to expose the underneath but it did leave me with a very firm piece of fabric. I rubbed over the surface with Gleam.
I am sure Shelagh will finish with an exotic bang.
Come back on Wednesday and what we are playing with for August. I am hoping to make life easier for myself this time around.
