TheOne of the classes I am teaching at AFICC in Cinncinatti in 2017 is a book made from vintage pillowcases. My MIL had quite a supply of these packed away. They are made from heavy cotton and embellished with crochet designs. To give the pages some interest, I decided to try rust! Here are my pages after rusting and before embellishing.
The Mandela is made with hand cut leaves, the tree is embossing paste through a stencil on silk. Sheer die cut leaves.
