Lutradur and Lace

The newest online zine for fiber, paper, mixed media maniacs Fibre & Stitch is LOADED with step-by-step innovative fibre and mixed media techniques! Like this lutradur & lace technique made with scraps of cotton lace, lutradur, and scrim (a glamorous name for cheesecloth) I had so much fun laying elements out and going Luminier paint crazy with this one. The fabric makes lovely postcards, book covers, elegant bags and who knows what else. I needed postcards to catch up pcs for swaps and this makes lovely cards! Carol is an F&S artist and shares her wonderful technique in the premier issue.F&S is full of Free Projects like the one I really want to make next..... Mag's Flexi Bag! Lutradur and lace may be too stiff for that project but www.textiletales.blogspot.com gives other Beautiful bag projects in F&S to make with Lutradur & Lace. The full piece before I fashioned postcards from it. I will be making much more of this!


Love it!

There is just way too much stuff around to play with. Is this like angelina fiber? It looks similar.

I love the colors and textures. An inspiration. Where will I ever find the time. Do you think the family will mind if I take the next month off?

Your experiments look very interesting. Especially the colours. I have to try it too.
Do you want to change an ATC with me?
