This week's theme at Inching Artists is Lace. Mine don't look very lacy, do they? But they have a secret.
These are made from the Lutradur and Lace technique in the first issue of Fibre and Stitch Magazine, and I think I may have buried the lace a little deeply. It is there - scraps of broderie anglaise layered with gauze and painted with acrylic paint and iridescent inks. I was going to burn the layers back with the heat gun, but on sample pieces, the gauze proved extremely heat resistent. I embellished the squares with some varigated thread and a bright bead.
I've also signed up for Joanne's Inchie swap that she runs each month, and this month the theme is Children
I've never gone in an inchie swap before - I'm really looking forward to it.
