This month's theme for the hop was technique. We were challenged to use a technique we have never tried before...or to use a technique that we are really awesome at.
( i borrowed this eloquent statement from Lady B..... thank you lady!)
I had a long think about this .....and decided to make some canvas roses.... i've never made these before....but they were dead easy and quick and i found i can make 'em out of other fabrics.... great when i need the hard to find black flowers i love so much.... paper and card.
This is another of my 'made from scratch books'....... this one has a sewing theme.... the covers are covered in recycled suede....
the image is stamped onto the same recycled canvas as the flowers are made from, as are the little cotton 'cards'....
below is a list of blogs to visit....you can go in any order you want, but be sure to visit 'em all as we have all done something different.....Kelli is 1st on the list and beat me to choosing 'Masking'.... one of the few things i am any good at...... but because of that i have learned something new.... and dont tell anyone but i do like flowers!

Below are a couple of the pages of my book..... these are the only two i have done....
i've used stamped images, diecuts....hand made fabric flower, pictures and text from a 1935 book of needlecraft.
