I did manage a little studio time last week to experiment with a technique from Maggie Grey's blog magstitch. Maggie is an amazing artist and author and very generous with sharing ideas and techniques. She has a number of free tutorials on her blog and this one is disconcertingly easy and great fun.
Go and check out Maggie's blog but basically you print an image on your home printer, rub oil into it, let it dry then stitch and embellish.
As you can see I have done step one - the oiled pages are drying in the studio waiting for the next step. Aren't the colours fabulous?
