...don't throw it away!....

..what? I hear you ask....


...the backing paper from your painted Bondaweb...that's what!!


It's amazing what delightful patterns you find when you peel off the glue layer...

....and these have been put in my current "bits" sketchbook :-)







...along with this little stitched piece made with the painted Bondaweb itself...

...and some painted squares of Butterfly SoftSpun....





See you for tea tomorrow :-)

I love the re-use it approach and you do it so gracefully!
Beautiful!

How beautifully you have recycled today! *smile* Always wonderful to find a 'new' use for old friends.

Recycling and re-using....yes...

...these are the little bits that would normally end up in the bin...

..they're less than 2" x 4" :-)

Oh what a wonderful piece! So mysterious and poetic! I love it. I'm working on something with a similar atmosphere, a "Night Garden" series. This one is like an answer to my dreams.

I'm glad you like it Eva!

It was put together just with a few scraps of fabric...

...and a more than a bit of thought :-)
