Time has flown by again today, I can't remember
really having done anything, but whatever it was,
I evidently had fun!
Jo's theme of 'Poetry in Motion' I made a mixed media piece
using lots of different techniques, and of course,
lots of sewing.
First I made a 'skin' from grey metallic paint and gel medium,
and let it dry for 2 days. Then I stamped it with my scrolls
and embossed it with bright red e.p. I sewed it to some
corrugated cardboard, catching some red gauze between the layers.
Then I stamped the Gibson Girl (LaBlanche) onto a scrap of canvas
pasted with some book paper, and fussy cut it. I mounted it onto
some cheese cloth and sewed it to the background. The roses
were cut from a scrap of cloth Donna sent me from Mexico many
moons ago. I sewed them on, and filled them with fibre-fill to make
them more dimensional. The little paper scroll contains the text,
a verse from William Blake:
For Tag Tuesday, 'use your scraps', I made a small tag
using lots of bits and bobs from one of my many
bit boxes. I am also linking to Go Tag Thursday, anything goes:
And some photos from my corner of the world.

Loved the names here:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
