Technique Time Tuesday. TTT is a challenge blog that explores different techniques, stretching skill levels and teaching new ideas, pop over and take a look.
This is my application for the DT. I have chosen to use the Bargello technique shown last year because it reminds me of one of my Granny's favourite cushions. If you would like to know how to do this then click here for the TTT bargello tutorial.
When I put the strips down I used double sided tape. I had some small gaps so I dusted with gold mica powder which stuck to the tape and gave me a subtle gold shimmer instead of nasty white marks.
The cream roses are made up from Tattered Floral die cuts and edged with a tiny touch of gold ink. The greeting is the smallest leaf die cut from one of the patterned papers used in the bargello with a small gold greeting added.
I love to learn new techniques so a challenge site like this is a great way of doing so.
