Overseas friends know I like to do with crafts. They sent me some lovely napkin papers to do with decoupage. Brigitte gave me this famous cats painting of Rosina Wachtmeister
This cow pattern is from Ria. The strips are wet felt wool and the ceramic leave are my own handmade. This is a laser print transferred with sort of ointment.
I want to make bags all with DIY. I bought the cotton cloth and strips. Intentionally used the dark strips as white ones get obvious dirts easily.The plain bag made looks like this.
I brushed the ointment (Methyl Salicylate) on the back of the laser print. Put face down and scratched. The image then transferred permanently on the cloth surface. The effect looks a bit faded. Another look.
Here in Hong Kong we can buy some stuff at very cheap price. A bag like this may only cost USD1. Sometimes I fed up for how much effort I put on it. However something of own handmade and one of it's kind gives me a sense of satisfaction. If my friends appreciate it I'd be most happy to give away.
