The new Scrapbooking Creations is out.
My beautiful friend Vivian asked myself and Miss Mel, to contribute to an article she had for the mag, 'it's out',,, you have to check it out. You can check out the girls blogs (just click on their names) and hopefully they will share real soon. We created some awesome handbags using the art supplies in our creative space.
This is my effort, the pics aren't great as usual I was in a rush when I took them.
I had already started the dying process when the idea of doing a 'before and after' photo came up, so you will have to use your creative minds eye with this shot. The bag was a blue with white dots one made of hessian and I used Colour wash to dye it, the wash even dyed the bamboo handle which was a bonus.
After 14 or so hours of hand stitching (and I couldn't find the thimble)this is what the end result was.
