This morning I was at my sewing group and today was "show and tell"! We've recently decided, as a group, to do a little project every couple of months - we pick a word out of a hat and we all have to do a small art/journal quilt, based on this theme.
Our word this time was "DECO". To make things easy for myself I decided to reproduce a Deco ATC I made back in January. Mmm, trickier than I thought - the difficult bit was resizing it - I had to put all my mathematical skills to the test and being a perfectionist Virgo I had to get it all EXACT! - fortunately though I did get my Maths 'O' Level 30 years ago and remembered just enough to figure it out.
Here's the (picture heavy) step-by-step ...

The deco lady was copied and resized from some wrapping paper and printed onto inkjet cotton fabric.
Finally, I blinged it up with tiny glass beads. These were glued on individually, I was like Clarence the Cross-Eyed Lion by the time I'd finished.

I'd like to enter her into two challenge:
Anything But a Card (a new challenge) - "Anything Goes, and
Let's Craft and Create - "Anything but a Card"
Thanks for sticking with me through this long post, see you all again soon.
