I was so behind with the last two deco book swaps I joined, that a weekend without the men around, I gritted my teeth and got them done. One was for Owls and crows, the other was Autumn. They were both for my own books, everyone else had sent theirs to me ages ago. They are now complete, and on the shelf with all my other lovely altered and chunky books. I need a bigger room, well two big rooms would do, one for sewing, and one for everything else.
For a swap for mixed media Autumn colour postcards, I made two. One all fabric, and one on a fabric paper background. I did some felting, and cut the leaves out of the felt and some fabric, with my Tim Holtz mini tattered leaves die. I applied these with a tiny bit of glue, and then used the sewing machine to do the veins etc. I finished them off with some machine embroidery.
I don't make very many ATCs now, as I have a vast collection of them. One day I will make some fabric covers for the files, but don't hold your breath.
These are for a vintage lady swap, and I can't resist vintage.
I coloured the backgrounds with distress inks, and then stamped and embellished over the top.
