a little ad

On Wednesday I started to dye these strings and threads. I used inks to dye them and it gave them a strong texture. Then.......
I used them to make a little advertisement for my upcoming class at the Paper Crown. I used one of those little notebooks you get at the dollar store for the base. Then I tied on a bunch of stamped tags. This is the front, and......

this is the back. On the top I tied on some yarns and a bit of dyed cheesecloth. Now on to the studio pic for the day.


This is the lighted garland that hangs over my sewing machine and provides quite a bit of extra light. The little doll is made of silk and I just colored her pink using a dye pen.
Have an artful weekend and I will be back tomorrow with another picture.
