experiment with the embellisher

I am into the experiment,,, al the little pieces are made on the embellisher,, wool ,silk, organza ,
velvet .
some I like some I dont like .
If I do more experiment I wil let you see the result


always looking for new textures in fabrick here I used velvet wool and organza I worked from the backside so it was very surprising to see the result .
the blue fabrick was lovely and this one is very lovely
so back to the machine to see if I can come up with more lovely fabrick

the velvet book cover is finished I added some machine embriodery fantasie yarn and a bead
I am very pleased with the result


manipulation of velvet a little piece of velvet fabrick is laying around for a long time a lovely blue color .
I cut some pieces and punched it with the embellisher on the backside and scrim .
This piece was also cut in pieces that I mounted on the velvet piece that was not worked on with the embellisher .
Now I have a lovely piece of fabrick that I can use for a book cover

a book is finnished

The art journal for the FAF swap is finished it was so much work but it is turned out very nice
this is a very great way to bind a book .
I used plastic mesh a flat piece you can cut it up in little pieces it is firm enough to hold its shape without being so stiff it is easy to work on .

front page

I am working on the FAF art journal and I hade to make one more page the backside of the book ,
But this wil turn out to be the front of the book .
The green fabrick is silk that I punched with the embellisher in the middle there is a piece embriodery with some beads
I realy love this way of embriodery I used onely 2 stitches the Frenchknot stitch and the Herringbone stitch
these are my favoriet stitches with some fantasie yarn it look so good
