Mixed Media Monday - Words


This week's theme at Mixed Media Monday is "words". I included some words on this journal page I finished tonight for Vicci's square shaped book that I am working on as part of a round robin, so I am using this page as my entry for this theme.

The page is fabric (a recycled man's shirt) that I have sun-printed using champagne caps (or whatever it is that you call those little metal caps on top of champagne corks) and pink and orange glass paints. I have stamped in hot pink Fabrico ink using a flourish stamp and the end of a small cardboard roll. I've stitched a small piece of silk fusion fabric beneath the image which has been printed on an inkjet fabric sheet. To make the page more dimensional I have added fusible wadding underneath. And the beaded ribbon is much prettier than it looks in this scan.

A fun page to make!! I really do LOVE hot pink and orange together - I wonder what that says about me??!!

I love that colour combo too!
My OH has come up with a new theory the women who have ginger hair choose orange hues, can't see in your pic if there's a hint of ginger in there LOL.
Hope your back's better.

Debbi this piece is wonderful - and just what I need after three grey days in Albany.
How terrific that you have found a use for cork wire!! I hope hubby was not wearing the shirt whenyou took a piece, ;)

Debbie,
I agree - pink and orange are fantastic together! (even if I'm not a "pink" person). Love your contribution.
