Little French panel #1

Here's my first one....





...using some of those gorgeous sari silks...

...hand-dyed and printed fabrics...

...lace, beads, silk ribbons and rayons....

...old handwriting dipped in batik wax...

..and French flea market pearl buttons...

...done on a background of antique linen.



I'm pleased with it  :-)


My 300th posting is coming up soon....

...and I'll have one of these little panels done specially to giveaway...
