Fabric books and Felting FUN !!!

I've been playing in the lovely TINA'S fabric book and was so inspired by everyones super artwork. It's so nice to leave something as a sign-in, so popped this little tag in a pocket for Tina. Cotten sprayed with glimmer mists and stamped with a favourite COLLECTIONS stamp. Added some hand made paper beads dipped in UTEE and sprinkled with yummy opals.

Really fun to make.

Was so inspired to make a wild women from Dales ( The Thread Studio) challenge so made some silk paper and crazy stitched to black fabric. Love these faces and hands from ARTGIRLZ and added a beautiful treasure given to me by JANE, the treasure queen herself.

Had the pleasure of take a FELTING class a few weeks ago through CATALYST WORKSHOPS with the lovely TANYA PETERS and had a ball making tradional felt using wet felting techniques. My,my this is certainly addictive.

Lets just say that the felting bug has bitten me ...

quite a bit ...

I JUST LOVE IT !!!

Dawnie your felting is beautiful...you are such a clever girl and I love your flair for colour! The ones with the spots are my favourite!!! I would love to have a go at the wet felting.

Your wild woman doll for Tina is very funky and I am sure she will be treasured. Love the details, especially the "art bra".
