Textile playtime

I felt the need for a touch of creativity over the weekend and decided that I would try to use up a few odds and ends. I had some scraps of rusted fabric left over from a previous project. A piece of Expanda print on Lutrador that I made during a class with the very talented and also very lovely, Lynda Monk plus some other odds and ends. 

I do find it quite a challenge using up scraps and oddments as you never seem to have anything the correct size!!! Having said that, with a bit of perseverance, it can also be very rewarding when you stand back and look your work and realise the only new thing in this project was the canvas board!!!


Here's a few close up shots.
