Since we have been snow bound and now ice bound for days, I have had lots of time on my hands to work on some projects. Yesterday I posted the foundation pieces for a concertina fabric book. Last night and this morning I have been cutting out fabric pieces to begin the second layer of the book. Here is what I have laid down so far (none of this has been sewn down yet just in case I change my mind).
The fabric I chose to work with is from a local artist, Valori Wells (from Sisters, OR). This is her Flourish line of fabric.
For the first layer, I cut out 3 inch by 5 inch pieces. The second layer was cut into 2 inch by 4 inch pieces. The flowers are cut outs from one of the fabrics (I applied Pellon WonderUnder first and then cut them out). The strips with circles were part of the borders from the flowers that were cut out. The lace pieces were an after thought, not sure if I will use them. I need some words or perhaps small photo transfers to place in the center of each unit. Any ideas? Leave me a comment and let me know what you would add as a focal point.
Now off to look at other embellishments – buttons, beads, charms, yarns, specialty threads, etc.
