This summer I had time to make some paper using old newspapers and little bits of ..... netting from onions and a little twine ....
Oh in the top photo are some papers with spices (turmeric, pepper flakes), some flower petals, crochet yarn and paint.
Hope you're having a fun, creative week!

Upstatelisa had a giveaway for one of her sun-print fabrics and I was the lucky winner!
Candied Fabrics. She had a giveaway for one of Quilting Arts Gift Magazine, in which she had two projects, one for an ipad sleeve and another for her journal covers both featuring her really cool machine sketching which I am determined to try out this winter, probably on a journal cover. Candy also included a gorgeous piece of one of her Candied fabrics!

Tie dyeing was popular when I was in high school but I don't remember ever doing it. So I finally did some this summer! I haven't quite figured out if there is a true difference between tie-dyeing and shibori. I'm thinking that tie-dyeing is the simplest, basic form of shibori. Dye gurus, is this right? Anyway I did use some techniques I learned from Linda's Shibori workshop back in the spring.
