Playing with Tyvek


The last workshop of Ratty Tatty Papers came thro' today and I enjoyed painting and heating pieces of Tyvek , it takes colour well and they stay vibrant when heated, one piece, I zapped with a heat gun and added gems in the 'hills and hollows, then mounted it on to two layers of silk, I think this will look good framed, i'll mount the whole piece onto another piece of the beige silk then get a bigger frame.

This is lovely Maureen, and so is my little felted flower ATC. It is my very first - now I must decide how to keep them. Will it be a box or an album? Love the sound of those Ratty Tatty paper classes.
