The afternoon found us playing with different materials to make decorated papers. We used stencils, Brusho powder, spray inks and Pixie Powder. Spraying the different media using a fine water spray brought out such a variety of different effects. Even the kitchen paper used as masks has been kept since it can also be used in different projects. Thanks Meryl for a really exciting day.
I've put my decorated papers, fabrics and threads away for now while I get on with the quilts I really ought to be sewing. Unfortunately, the quilts really aren't of quite so much interest. However, there are deadlines to meet, so I really ought to get moving with them. Hopefully there will be some progress to report next time.
