I think tulle nets are hard to work with, even to stitch on them. So, I tried stamping it with acrylic paint and India ink. These, making me so excited ;
Stamping with black India ink.
Looks like cross-stitch :). Love.
This one was stamped with gesso and some green acrylic paint.
Honey-comb texture for dragon flies?. Cool.
Since this work so well, I decided to create something quick. Like ATCs!. Sheer ATCs. Although, needed to add linen & pattern papers as background, to make them less flimsy. You've guessed it, I took inspiration from my post before :).
And this adorable pattern paper from American Craft (Dream Catcher) sets the theme for my sheer ATCs.
The completed, sheer ATCs.
I stacked a few pieces of tulle nets with linen fabric at the very back. This helps to give weight & structure to the sheer materials. Then fussy cut some paper jars and glued them down to the stacked fabrics. Over it, laid a piece of a stamped tulle net at the very top and then stitched around the jars. Lastly, added sheer lace & floral fabrics.
Wonder if anyone has ever built a glass bird house?
The paper jar backing helps us to see the butterfly better.
Found the bird in a magazine.
Can you spot the dragonfly, here ?.

I'm using many sweet colors to celebrate Springtime. I noticed the trees in park here are blooming like crazy too. Despite the hot weather :). Here's what I saw recently at the park;
I guess, the spirit of the spring season in northern latitude does bring love, hope and cheer to the whole world :). Warm HUGS to you who lives in the snowy region.
