I have at last come to the final page in my Altered Book whilst doing the course run by Elizabeth. Lesson 16 is all about fabric and I was determined to use some especially as I love sewing. Fortunately there were more trousers to alter, so as I was getting the sewing machine out for those, I had no excuse. My book's theme is seasons and I needed a November page so it just had to be fireworks. The black fabric was from an old work skirt of mine which I loved and the gold and red fabric circles already had fused glue backing as they were off-cuts from when I made a banner for church.
I sewed the circles on with metallic thread and then added spirals coming out from them. I have hand sewn seed beeds around the spirals and star sequins inbetween. I have machine sewn it all onto torn out pages from my altered book but haven't got around to glueing it in yet. That might proove a bit tricky!! Oh and there is a little card I made for American friends who are going, from here in the UK, to work in France.
Well that is me for this week, if you fancy a look at other desks in the mad frensy that's called "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!" pop over to Julia's to be amazed.
PS My son said it looks more like starfish and my husband said it was more like something biological - oh well I tried!!
