Had a great time playing on the embellisher today. We wound sheering elastic under tension onto a metal frame, wrapped fabrics on top and then embellished. My shirring elastic broke half way through, so didn't get the result I was supposed too, so I started to make a fabric cuff for someone at work.
The beads I bought yesterday were not really the right colours in daylight. Bonnie who is a member of FET has taken my samples away with her to get the right ones from me as she has a good bead supplier close to where she lives. As I couldn't do the beading on my flowers, I have done another exercise for the on-line art course. I had to cut out images from a book, which I find very hard, luckily there was a 2nd hand book stall at Cottenham, so I was able to but a distressed child's book to use.
Amelia is running this course again in June if you are interested in having an excuse to play with paints, papers and glue etc.
