365 Journal and stuff

Not much to say about my journal pages.  I'm using an A3 Pink Pig book this year.  Check out Kate's blog for more info and inspiration.

I had a little play yesterday with transfer inks.  They work on polyester fabrics, also on a polyester mix but less well - it absorbs less of the ink.  It works so well on Evolon (a woven polyester fabric) which is the heart labelled number 2.  I also used the Evolon with the plant material.

Basically you paint the inks onto copy paper then iron it onto fabric so you can paint solid colour or paint a design onto the paper or cut shapes out of the painted paper.  With the plant material you place it onto the fabric, put the painted paper on top then iron over it.  Also transferred some of the ink to organza ribbon shown at the bottom here.

I've also made some organza flowers, one made using a tea-light to shrivel the edges of the organza and the other 2 using a heatgun.

Fabulous Anne, great pages and very brave of you to try all these new things.
Don't mind trying them out at next meeting but don't blame me if I set the place on fire.

Woo hoo! I can go tomorrow to Event City so will hopefully see you there. I'll go to the front entrance at 12 noon if I don't see you around and about before then. We plan to get there quite early.
Love your calendar and your flowers are delightful. So professional that I'd think they were from Accessorise!
Love Jo x
