I feel very blessed to have as much contact with Frieda as I do & be involved in many of the same projects as she is. A lot of people consider me a prolific artist, but I know Frieda is! I am constantly amazed with the amount and quality of inspiring art that she produces, and most of it is fabric art. When I sent Frieda my Black & Gold Colour Groupies ATC, I slipped in an extra ATC to thank her for all she does (see the rose ATC above-click for more detail).
Since Frieda's theme for her Tip Top Journal is Romance & Roses , I thought she might like a 'rose' fabric ATC. To make this I dried some roses in a microwave flower press. Then I prepared cotton fabric to go through my inkjet printer/copier by ironing it to an adhesive sheet and then taping this to a piece of card stock with masking tape so it would be stiff enough to run through my printer. I took my pressed roses, laid them on the copier and made a color copy directly onto my prepared fabric! I used this as a base for Frieda's ATC, stamped the saying with VersaCraft ink and glued on a string of gold beads.
To finish up, I used my test piece of paper, to which I had color copied the same pressed roses and ripped a section of it to fit on a card and stamped an appropriate saying. Thank you, Frieda!! Looking forward to continued inspiration from you : )
