I've been a member of the Yahoo Group Fiber Art Traders for about a year but haven't joined in any of their swaps for a while. I thought it was about time I did join in so I've jumped into a fairly easy one - autumn themed bookmarks. As I haven't been using my embellisher much either I thought this was an ideal time to get it out so here is the result.
I have kept the bookmarks simple and let the colours speak. The centre bookmark shows the reverse side which is a lutradur prepared by following Maggie Grey's "Textile Translations" book. It should have been vilene but I selected lutradur by mistake. Hand made papers, gesso and salt have been applied before being painted with dilute acrylics.
