You may have noticed a distinct lack of creative goodness on this blog or recent weeks.
Today I decided I had better pull finger and start on my swap goodies for the famous 5
I decided to start by dying some cotton reels, in a bid to make them look a little old :)
they sit in a bath of walnut ink for a few hours and start to suck it all up, goody!
They dry a little lighter, but they are starting to looked aged! Yay.
Mmmmmm, now I'll need some old lace. But it looks a little too white,
so, into a lovely coffee bath :))
And then a bit of a rub on the concrete and left to dry in the sun.
Looks pretty old now!
I'll keep you updated on progress...
