Tome 9 & 10

tome 9 involved using transfer crayons for the background. It is on a cream silky polyester as they only transfer to man made fiber. The cat is painted Tyvek and I just drew the fish on card stock and cut it out. The flowers are burnt chiffon and Tyvek.

I painted the Pelltex, fused on this mermaid picture and surrounded it with Tyvek ( just obsessed with this product)and on the left painted then melted plastic bags. This too could be an obsession as the plastic shrinks in a very unpredictable way. The green on the left is heated, distressed cellophane.
Tome 10 involved making wool felt. Many years ago in Jane Dunnwold's class i made wool felt beads. It was one of those moments I knew i never wanted to make wool felt again. Anyway, Deanie to the rescue with this luscious wool felt she made. I will photo and post Deanie's tomes at a later date as she does not touch computers. That is a vintage silk pansy with couched threads.
Side two of Tome 10 is a felted and stitched figure. here i used Patti's pattern as i really wanted to try this. Just loved the result, the technique starred for future projects.
The new camera produces bigger and better images than my Olympus so I will have to lower the pixels after first reading this QA as Gloria Hansen is writing about all the geek stuff for we technical challenged.


  1. Great!! Both the pages and the photos. I've enjoyed some of your older posts as well. I like the way you have made your tome with your own ideas!!
