More Embellisher playtime ...

I've had a great time over the last couple of days ....... I embellished a few bits of lace onto a piece of white felt, and then zapped it with the heat gun, front and back ..... when I do it again I shall leave more space between the laces so the felt can disintegrate easier!
I then painted it with BLACK fountain pen ink, which dried blue. I did think it would dry a grey colour, maybe. Perhaps I should have watered the ink a bit ....
I then painted a yellow on it, and got this suggestion of green. Quite nice - make a pretty book cover maybe?
This is a piece of hand dyed silk I embellished onto felt in a random manor, leaving odd spaces. It is amazing how this texture reminds me of my swimsuit, when I was little!!
This is silk, wool and nylon tops pulled out into wisps and embellished on dark green polyester velvet. I am enjoying this ..... looking forward to Tuesday!

We must be of an age! I was busy admiring your embellished (potential) bookcover as the pink piece came into view.

Without even seeing the whole piece my first thought was of my swimsuit when I was younger. Though I must admit that mine was yellow!

You're certainly going some with that embellisher, I love the dark blue piece and think it'd make a great bookcover. Look forward in anticipation to the next "embellisher installment".

What a great set of samples, Val, I love the fountain pen ink /lace one, what a clever idea to paint it with ink. Looking forward to seeing what you do on the course.
