Journal Page Exchange and Mail Surprise
I had 2 appointments today--one at the hospital and one at the dentist. When I came home in between and checked my mailbox there was a package. My first thought was, did I order fabric and forget about it, but no, it was a surprise gift from an aunt that I correspond with via email. Really we are more like sisters in our age differences. She is also a sewer and a quilter, and so picked out a very nice tote bag kit to cheer me up. The colors are beautiful.
This last one is the one that I did. I used the paper fabric technique--tissue paper applied with glue to muslin with various bits of paper scraps in between. Then I stamped, painted, stitched, and applied some foil for highlights.
I thought you might like to see the progression of the little doll. Since I was out all day today, this is as far as I got. She's cute so far.
