The Colours Of Her Mind

Hello Everyone
I return quicker than I normally do with this scheduled post because when I was looking at the folders on my laptop I realised I have a few items I really should be blogging or before I know it, it will be Christmas!
This item uses Crafty Individual products. All the time they are adding to their Must Have department, have you seen the new masks they are now stocking and  recently they added white bags which are ripe for altering.  I laid aside the bags for Christmas preparations but when recently I was packaging items to send to a dear friend the bags popped into my mind.  The bags are a great size and although I did not use ink or paint on them they are sturdy enough to take all sorts.Dyed lace was layered onto the bag, the lace at the top and bottom and seam binding were dyed with the same fruity tea bags as on my recent Oxford Impressions card, the colour picking out the colour in the image.  That beautiful image is from one of the Crafty Individuals People and Places book which you can see I transferred onto fabric, fraying the edges. Did you know that C.I. are now stocking TAP? That I would say is a definite “must have” if you like to create image transfers,  Jean has displayed it on her Blog not so long ago when she even used it for stamping purposes.
One final word on Crafty Individuals is to say to watch-out as Jean will be announcing a new challenge theme on September 1st.
Thank You for taking the time to visit this post.

    You never fail to impress – take a simple white bag and turn it into a work of art, it is so beautiful. Really must try that transfer technique. Thank you for the inspiration. Anne x

    Gorgeous bag Lynne…your layering of beautiful soft ingredients amazes me again and again.

    I too am a big fan of Lesley Riley’s TAP … it is so easy to use one can hardly believe it’s done

    You and Paula should definitely join forces and open a bag boutique, quite stunning, elegant and too beautiful ever to use, I adore bags and have a rather large collection most of which I never use but how I love to own them. thanks for making my day with this fabulous creation.
