Moving forward?

Still producing small projects - anything that needs more than half an hour of concentration is still on the back burner!  This is a postcard made for a swap with the theme of 'pink'.

Another postcard for the birthday swap - this theme was windows.  It was also a good chance to try out some reverse applique, as I'll need to do some in my college course in my next module.  This was a fun project, all recycled stuff on the front - a colour catcher cut into the window shapes and sweet wrappers under it, with random placement.
  1. I've also made a few applique samples for my course - all the fast techniques have been covered (or at least, all the fast techniques in my repertoire - that's seven of them!) so I'll need to check my books later in the week to look and see which other ones I've missed.  I suspect that there are relatively new ones using glue or lots of starch that I haven't covered, and the 'old' traditional ones where you need to mark out with fine pencil lines.
I hope that your concentration is better than mine, and that you are having a fun and creative January!


  1. Gosh, not sure I could think of 7 methods - are you looking at different effects, like raw edge, needle turn, bondawebbed and overcast, there's one which involves a colour catcher and turning inside out through a slit at the back, um, the stained glass fusible binding over the raw edges method? Reverse, Avril's freezer paper method, ... Ok I'm finished, help me out!?
