Tyvek bookmark


My little Torti girl is hopping around on 3 legs this week, she has injured a nerve in her leg and needs a bit more attention than usual. Little things like opening doors because the catflap is to difficult plus if someone picked a fight with her she would not be quite her usual fisty self. So yours truely is staying in well we who dwell with cats have to be prepared to do our duty. LOL Good thing I'm not working really.

Had planned to go out with Von tomorrow to see Lucy but had to postpone for now. So Von popped in to see me bringing with her the sleeve of one of her OH's old sterile environment overalls which it seems are made of Tvyek. Very differnt from the Tvyek Hilda sent. So we cut a bit out dripped some alcohol inks onto it and stamped a flower image in stayzon. Lots of colour bleed making a very interesting piece. Heat gun and yep up it shrivels, Von then suggested making a hole in it and applying heat to the hole ummm like that so holes in the flowers making them pull in at the middle. It is different but the results are similar and great fun.

Added a few microbeads in Glossy Accents stamped the flower in versa mark onto some scrap card and used clear EP on part of the stamped images. Tyvek stuck to card and a little fibre threaded round.

Thanks Von
