Fabric

The 2nd challenge for the month over at STB was to use fabric!!  Had to give it a go...
i use fabric all the time!  It just didn't seem right not to do it. 
I had a beautiful pic of Lachy that we took during the holidays, so i thought i'd print it onto calico...
which really softened it a lot.  I also printed the journaling on calico and tore strips of blue/white
and brown/white checked fabric too.  Bit of lace... bit of stitching and some dressmakers pp,
and i was all done... bar the random sanding and distressing!



hmmm ... for some reason those denim flowers look really dark.

Hope you like..

thanks for visting.
