I am still mystified about no photos for the show & tell last night - I really thought I took them - but I don't recall anything going wrong when I loaded them onto my laptop. A real mystery.
Anyway, now for the photos of the project last night which was the puffed image.
What a lovely bear - not the best photo - but look at his tummy you can see it is puffy
Everybody loves this mouse - he pops up a lot - I have got him but haven't used him yet
Aah! Tatty Ted - the light coming in from the left really help to show up his roundness
This lily looks really good - almost looks like a bit of quilting
Kimono's work really well with this technique. The technique is a bit awkward to photograph though
so this does not show as good as it was.
I don't know what this little character is called but the technique works well with him too
A different colourway for this pretty kimono
This was a tricky image to use as the petals are independent of each other but it works well
& the two leaves are puffed too
Another image that works well & the "mound" can be seen quite clearly
A great image for this technique & very effective - you can see the edge of the ridge along the back of the dolphin. I think it's a dolphin
A really beautiful image absolutely ideal for the technique & shows so well with it's great background
I do hope you will all try this technique again - it is a little time consuming but worth the effort. Of course it always takes a little longer when you are learning a technique & you in some cases choose a different image the next time.
I had a very pleasant day today - meeting Caroline at Inspirations (florist wholesaler) where I was able to pick up the tea light candles for one of your upcoming projects. We then went to the garden centre behind Hulme Hall where we had lunch & a good natter about everything & nothing. After Caroline parted I popped into Creative Pastimes to see if they had some inks suitable for stamping on fabric. Which fortunately they did. I also picked up some roll up storage for my Promarker pens. Then I spotted a really interesting brush bucket which I bought to keep those shaving brushes in. I had wondered what to keep them on & Lynne at the meeting last night had them in a tin - but didn't have an empty tins at home & these little buckets which were fabric were only £1-99. I think they will look quite smart on my desk & I can carry them around with me easily to meetings & workshops. Mind you to keep them on my desk I will have to redesign it - not the desk of course - but how & what I have on it.
So looks like over the weekend my desk is going to get another makeover. The it will mean a change to some of the shelves - so I guess that makes it into a room makeover.
Whatever you are doing over the weekend have fun & stay safe.
Night night - more tomorrow.
