Visit to Preston Guild vintage weekend
I had an interesting day out at the vintage celebrations in Preston. The ministry of craft area was lots of fun and I almost mastered the art of fingerknitting.... I am very proud of my knitted rose, knitting has never really been my thing however that may change!! The tent was a little dark but my rose probably looks its best in dim lighting so perhaps this was a ploy by its organisers
|cutting and sticking|
I also had a go at image transfer, although had to get over the emotional hurdle of cutting up books. (There is something very sad about an unwanted book) but I guess photomontage is a fitting end, I still found it a challenge to take scissors to the pages.!! The end product was a little red riding Hood bag, the image taken from an old and tired ladybird book which looked very familiar, perhaps I had it as a child.... either way the image found me and not the other way round , I can see the possibilities for further use of image transfer, although it does have limitations regarding reversal of image and text.
