Extreme Surfaces for Stitch at Denman College Part 3
an octopus's garden - painted Bondaweb and Vilene Spunbond CS800 cut with a soldering iron
Wow!!! What a Fab last few days at Denman College! www.denmancollege.org.uk My group worked very hard and produced some excellent work, it's a shame I can't fit all the work on here. A few of the group were beginners and the rest were quite experienced so it was an interesting mix to teach. Everyone got on well together and there was lots of sharing, both of ideas and threads and fabrics, this always helps things to run smoothly.

I know I always say don't start off with a square of Tyvek because you will end up with a square of Tyvek, cut into it, cut circles or spirals, but these two samples are just so beautiful it doesn't seem to matter. Heavy weight Tyvek painted with metallic paints and ironed lightly between baking parchment to create texture. The Tyvek was then foiled with gold heat transfer foil.
Don't forget my Denman girls - Kiss, Stroke and Caress for texture and Welly, Wiggle, Off to foil!!!!
Wednesday is looking good . . . . . !!!!
