Yesterday my friend Paula came round for a crafty morning, transfer paints were on the agenda and some pleasing results were achieved. I am in love with this pressed Geranium leaf that had been eaten by bugs in my garden this summer, luckily I pressed quite a few of them and if I can only remember which book I stored them in I will be able to repeat the design.
I've used pelmet vilene for some of the samples, the transfer paint is very vivid on all of the vilenes.
I took these photos today after a morning spent at Addenbrooks Hospital, nearly three hours to travel 44 miles during rush hour. It felt like the world was trying to get into Cambridge this morning, I can't imagine what it must be like to commute on a daily basis - nightmare!
I just needed to calm myself with colour after such a stressful morning.
These gossamer like pieces were done on Zeelon a very soft and delicate synthetic similar to Lutrador.
When I track down some Evalon I will make a few more samples I know that it will be the perfect fabric for transfer paints.
Health issues are ongoing, full scan and more blood tests next week, I will craft my way through!
