As I have mentioned maybe a thousand times, I love 3D embellishing. I cannot make an art quilt without some type of three dimensional embellishment on it. It just adds that extra something to my work.
This little gem is one of my favourites. I was experimenting with bottle caps. Each one is different.
Starting with the top left hand one, I hammered it flat and stacked some colourful buttons inside it.
The top right one had fabric covering the bottom and buttons on top. The middle row uses a pretty blue jewel attached to the top of the cap. And the other one has wool roving and a sequin sewn into it. If you look close, you will see that I used the thread to come around the cap and encasing the roving and sequin into it.
The last row has the cap hammered down, and fabric and a button inside to embellish it . The bottom right has a felt flower tucked in with a tiny bead as the centre.
I placed the caps on their own little squares of fabric and fused them to a funky batik background. My binding is an elastic ribbon.
Now go and tell a few friends to enter my giveaway.... quick... not much time left.....
