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.
