Flowers was the theme for our May chunky page trade. For this trade, I used beautiful scrapbook paper, neatly trimmed to the flowers and leaves. I then sewed the paper onto a free-motion quilted silk back, added some beads, and layered a transparent piece of fabric on top.
I bound the edges (not well :(, first time binding) and hand-sewed beads to trim around the binding.
My biggest lesson learned was on the binding – I found a great tutorial from Rebecca Lilly Segura, and my bindings have improved dramatically!
The June trade is Birds. I’m nearly complete and will post in a few days.
