We have had some lovely rain but not really a lot - the gardens need it. You don't expect to have to hand water in winter. I have been playing with Xpandaprint and stencils and sprays and mica. I am really pleased with this stone effect - just need to add some stitch next.
This is the back of it - worked on craft vilene - the Xpandaprint is the white and I rather like the effect - I am thinking when I have stitched it that it will be a page on its own because each side is so different.
Here I have stamped onto craft vilene with Xpandaprint, heated and rubbed with metallic wax and then brushed Magical Mica over the surface having first sprayed on a secret ingredient. I am quite thrilled with the effect of it
We received a very large shipment of sari ribbon and associated stuff today - and I had ordered a small amount of sari ribbon in stone colours - this is what they sent. It has the greys, a bit of dark purple/burgundy and that shade of green plus other colours. This picture has almost an oil slick look to it. Quite different from the usual brights - I am thinking I might try for other different colours next time. They cost more because they have to sort them to get the shades one might ask for. I am going to tackle some with my embellisher tomorrow.
