I have some layouts to share! I had an article in Scrapbooking Memories Issue 11(5) called "Fabric Revival". These are the projects:
This little wallhanging is based on unbleached calico. I've used vintage braids and laces, old flowers that have been handpainted to decorate it. The photo is of my grandmother with friends, around 1930.
A close up showing the layering of braids and laces, with sheer fabric flowers.
The Fish Game.
Journaling: "f-oo!" "f-ee!" "f-ow!". This is your fish game. It's just one of many of the "special sounds" games we've begun. The "f" sound is your bunny-rabbit sound - we practice it in front of the mirror, sticking our top teetch out over our bottom lip and saying "ffff!". "f-or!" "f-air!" and so it goes. A little step in the right direction.
I used canvas as the backing for this page, and sprayed it liberally with Glimmer Mist. The mist puddles on the fabric and, when dry, makes a beautiful shimmery mottled effect.
Felt seagrasses, fabric coral, and padded fabric fish make up the embellishments.
Why We'll Always be Late
Journaling: "Jamie!" I call, "put your shoes on, we're going out." and look what happens... oh no! you have grass on your hands... oh no! you have grass on your feet.... oh no! you have grass in your shoes. Sigh. This is why we'll always be late.
This layout uses hessian as the major embellishment - the grass and tree.
I didn't realise until I saw it in the magazine, but one of the letters in the title has come unstuck and now forms a very unattractive black twig at the bottom of the layout. Dratted adhesive!
This layout was done for my friend Nic. The baby in the basket is her daughter, Jacinta. I swear, all that I used for this layout is a sheet of patterned paper, some fabric, calico, twine, paint and pearls. Oh and a couple a rubons.
The flowers are simple circles of calico that have been folded up on themselves and then painted. The branches are twine.
The basket it made of twine too :), with a felt blankie and a muslin wrap. Sooo sweet!
And I had a layout in the Masters' Challenge gallery too:
Journaling: You were given this little dog for your first birthday and, even now you're three, you still love him and take him for regular walks in the garden.
OK, that's it! Whew! Mammoth share tonight :)
Enjoy your weekend.
