In the spirit of "use it or get rid of it" I tried out a piece of Texturemagic that I have had in my supplies for a while. The results were so intriguing, I incorporated them into my journal challenge for February.
Straight line stitching on hand-dyed velvet
Stipple stitch on hand-dyed velvet
Stipple stitch, with a layer of wadding on hand-dyed velvet - this one looks really like brain coral
and all three samples incorporated in to the final journal ( 6 x 12 inches), with a piece of quilted, but non-textured velvet at the bottom for reference.
This was very easy to use and gave really interesting results. The edges of each sample were a bit of a challenge to keep straight at this size, but a larger piece would be much easier to handle. I think this one will need a big " Please do not touch" sign at our exhibition in October.
