grungeboard playing and still raining

Poor Sarah - it has rained non-stop since she arrived and apparently going to clear up next Monday when she flies off. At least it isn't cold. I hope it isn't too wet down south for her trip.



In between getting ready for the show this weekend in Perth, I have had a wee play with Grungeboard. It's interesting stuff - very flexible. I have sprayed with Moonshadow Mist and hand stitched it to an embellished surface - a fine silk fabric I found lying around worked on some muslin - I am quite pleased with this stuff and Ian has spent quite a while today putting it all on the website. I have the letters because I am still playing around with letters and words but what better way to start than with your own name. I want to try a few other colouring means as well. I have also been playing with a couple of ideas for my on-line embellisher workshop - sorry Penny - I just have to add some new things but wouldn't it be boring if it was exactly the same as the first round. It starts on 12th August.

This looks terrific, Dale, I do love the colours. Could you please tell me what a grungeboard is?

What a beautiful surface and the letters look really good too. I like that you can stitch them on and they have a texture.

I have been reading about grungeboard in all the American blogs, so glad you have some for us to try, it looks really interesting. Sad for Sarah to be sightseeing in the rain, but I bet you are glad to have it. Cheers Robin

Dont Worry Dale I imagine we will do all sorts of new things at Geelong, you need to be on your toes for that!
Not as wet as you but freezing cold here.

OK, I haven't struck Grungeboard either, so tell us all about it!
