A quick post!

I’m off to work this evening and we’re short-staffed and mega-busy! So, I’ll probably be too tired to do anything except eat, drink tea and put my feet up later on! However, I have had such a productive day: Finished the commissioned Arty-Farty Birdie Bag (#8) my friend ordered for her best friend’s birthday – phew!! Just got the tag to make tomorrow – easy-peasy!

I tried and successfully managed to  do my first fabric image transfer with water, thanks to Annette’s fabulous cheapo photopaper which she sent me a few sheets of, all the way from Oz!! Thanks so much Annette! Now to source it over here!!

Obviously, I’ve stamped and decorated the panel to make the bag beautiful…. and it looks great! Then I managed to paint the second page of the Altered Board Book Project which we are doing on NGS and finally, I managed to finish off 3 gorgeous textured cards. I’m astounded by just how beautiful they are and if they go to the Craft Fair with me, I shall have a really hard time selling them!

I haven’t got time to show you pics today, but I promise to do so soon… I have to ask nicely if I can feature this superb tutorial on Inspirational as the artist who showed us her technique doesn’t have a blog I can direct you to, but it’s fabulous to create something lovely from scraps… yep, scraps!

Right, must dash – TTFN!! (Tata for now, to the non-Brits!!) xoxoxo

    My competition is open to all art media as long as its black and white its in!
    the beads are stuck using darice high tack quick drying glue and weighed down with various objects ( Scissors, Ink pads & tweezers)until its dry you just have to make sure you dont stick your weights to your project!

  3. Your transfer is gorgeous! Beautiful colors!!! The stitching and the beaded background are lovely and perfectly offset the transfer! Bravo, Rosie! This is beautiful! Would love to learn the water transfer technique! I don’t have the greatest luck with transfers, so I hope it’s easy and fool-proof!
