Another fabric page




Above is my finished fabric page for Magda's book. It has taken me a while I must say, to a) get my mojo back and b) finish the beading. I find beading very therapeutic, although I'm not the neatest beader on the planet.

The background is made using Beryl Taylor's fabric paper instructions, my first time making it. I love how it is so flexible and feels like fabric, yet has the strenth and stiffness of paper. Hope that makes sense.

I'm also uploading this to the Embrace the Face Challenge Blog which has a theme of white. I know my background and picture isn't white, but the birdie is :-)

Thanks for looking
