Here's the second postcard I made with the painted batting for the Technique of the Month at http://www.threecreativestudios.com/ The foil is a peel and stick and is silver holigraphic. It does strange things when it is scanned. I'll be doing one of the demos at our Guild meeting in March and am practicing my Shisha embroidery-my specialty.
In a box of samples I found this needlelace piece that I had done years ago. I've decided to do a wall hanging to feature it. There is no point in not using it-not sure what I was saving it for. It's a fun technique if somewhat labor intensive. You draw a design on brown paper then baste heavy thread to the main lines of the design. The needlelace is done next, finishing with buttonhole stitch over the heavy thread to cover all the starts and stops and create a nice edge. The piece is 4 by 5 inches.
