Last samples for week 1

These are the last samples that I did for week 1 of Dales Embellisher course.
The first one is my challenge piece and it has a background of a painted baby wipe that was embellished to a piece of commercial felt.
I then punched in some wool threads to form a grid.
The flowers are cut out from a sample piece made by embellishing some silk throwsters waste fibers - wool fibers and scrim bits onto a scrim background--then I cut out the flowers -put the centres in and then embellished them slightly to the background--I like the look of this one.

This last one is made from all the bits that I cut off my other samples when I trimmed them off.
I put them onto a fiece of felt and voila something to make some more postcards out of.

Now for week 2

You did all those projects just in week one? Wow!! Can't wait to see what next week brings.

Aren't we having fun? She is certainly presenting a lot of information.

I really love the flower sample, Doreen, it's so lively and the colours are beautiful.
You're definitely getting heaps of info on this course.

Hi Doreen, I am soooo jealous, I so wanted to do the embellisher course but it is just not practical being here for a couple of weeks. Dale promised me that she will be doing it again soon. Yum.
It is looking like so much fun.

Lovely, especially the flower one. Glad you're enjoying the course.
