My rather shady background

Oh dear, this is another background I've been working on but my scanner really doesn't do it justice. Never mind, I'm sure Chriss will have a piece!!!
I've used lots of different fabrics layered over each other and daubed in various fabric and acrylc paints and embossing powders. I've ironed the whole piece under a lovely white linen tea towel which has turned out to be a rather colourful piece of art in itself!


  1. Me Me Me... I need a piece!!! You are just so fabulously clever at creating these tactile backgrounds Deb and I just know it will be wonderful in real life. Can't wait to see it properly!!

  2. Aww, Chrissy, you're soooo kind, thank you! I will save a piece just for you. I'm using some for a mother's day card and to cover a couple of small books.
    When do we get together for playday?

  3. Hi Debs, just wanted to say thanks for your comment on my blog, its nice to have work asppreciated :) I was going to email you but can't find an email address?

  4. GORGEOUS, only one thing about a great background like that ... you don't want to cover it up :)

  5. Fantastic work, I may have to try it some time.

  6. Even if your scanner didn't do it justice, it still looks really good! Something I haven't tried (yet) but I want to now.

    (Thanks for coming by my blog too)

  7. Superb Debs, I love the kind of work, so many layers and only you really know what went into it! fab! Margaret

  8. What great textures you have created!
    Now the decision re: teatowel - bleach it or cut it up and use for art....?

  9. Debbie - thanks so much for the gorgeous piece of ATC-sized fabric... Now to stop stroking it and put it to use!!
