Well, I finally found time to make the felt up into a cover for my oringinal notebook I started about 8 years ago! I like the way the silk velvet felts into the surface. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you will see the R is made from a mould which was this month's product of the month from Dale. I had to show it before August is finished! I remembered afterwards I had bought several of these moulds in Hobart last year and I have hardly used them yet - tut, tut! I used my melting pot and some gold Utee to make this stamp.
The last technique of the month was sunprinting - only mine was done under a lamp as the sun was definitely not shining for several days when I was trying to do it. For small pieces the lamp works very well. This has become the inside cover for my felted piece. I sunprinted it twice, adding some paperclips the second time just to add some interest.
This is another little trinket box I have finished, the colour is much more shimmery than shows in the photo. I started it so long ago that I can't remember what my base fabric was. I know I had painted vleisofix over the top of it, then some red foiling, lastly covered by a shimmering green gold organza.
this schotia tree is in our front garden and is full of screeching parrots most of the day, as well as honeyeaters of all sorts and sizes. The tiny little ones have the most beautiful calls. At night the fruit bats and the possums have fights to see who gets eating rights - the fruit bats (flying foxes) mostly win, which surprised me. The tree has very attractive foliage so makes a lovely shade tree all year round.
Now I had better go away and finish a little heart which I want to send away to a friend tomorrow for her birthday.
