Fabric book cover

Working with fabric paint I coloured the white cotton fabric then stamped a variety of stamped images in various colours  Once this had dried and heat set I added net lace and ribbon held in place with hand and machine stitching  The cover fits over an A5 book - and I can remove the cover to wash or change to another book

Rusty box

The challenge on http://alteritmonthly.blogspot.com/
was to use or create something rusty As I have been collecting rusty bits for years I couldn't wait to make something for this challenge My box of 'Forgotten Dreams'
is an assemblage of bits linking to a key - the key to the past

Pram for Rose

Back to school this week and one of the mum's
