Step Outside your box Saturdays-Fabric


This was a hard one! But, since I recently did a inkjet transfer to fabric I thought I would do another one and incorporate it into a collage. The brown piece behind the collage is one of those frame thingies that old photos come in-I cut it into two pieces, to use another for later :) I handstitched the image transfer to the substrate-which is a piece of canvas with old text adhered to it.

The little girls are from a favorite photo from my own collection. I very often use photos from my very large collection and add color to them ,etc :)
