The theme was ‘Beauties’. First one was made on a piece of hand coloured fabric, which I stamped after I’d placed the picture. A small amount of organza was placed on the right side and attached, with the sequins and beads. I gave it a very quick blast with the heat gun, but decided not to go any further with that idea!
Second one was a piece of painted silk, placed on some pink velvet (my old caravan curtains!), and an ink-jet printed picture. A piece of lace, a dictionary definition and a couple of small flowers finished it off. Both were then satin stitched around.
The third one is not stitched. I fell across this picture of a beautiful old woman and really wanted to use it in some way. The background is a piece from a National Geographic treated with Citra-Solv. I mounted this onto black card and added the quote. It still needed something else so I stamped a little with Stazon, and attached the sequin and bead. Of the three I think this is my favourite.
