This lesson's homework, which I am a bit late in submitting, was to create a spread using fabric in some way. I chose to cover two pages completely with fabric, as an aside this helped with the strength of my book which is beginning to burst at the seams. I stamped a border of berries and holly about and inch inside the outside edge. Another border of snowflake sequined ribbon was put on the outside edge of the stamping. I cut snowflakes out of iridescent material and added smaller glitter snowflakes to the centers of each flake. I coloured the berries and holly leaves with felt pens and added glossy accents to the berries to make them stand out.
Finally I stamped the words "Let It Snow" in the top corner in white ink and added glossy accents to make it stand out better. Once again I struggled with taking photos of shining material. Perhaps a lesson on this would help me some.
Off to look around the other altered books of my colleagues and to catch up with our student's choice lesson. Thank you Elizabeth for a wonderful tutorial as usual detailing dying fabric and the various methods to collage the pieces onto our books. Love the fabric beads you made, will have to try these when I have more time.
