I also made a second mica - packing tape transfer piece, see below. This time I used an image from a new Alpha Stamp sheet called Moon & Stars. I just love this new image sheet! Moon & stars is an important theme to me, but the images themselves are just lovely. Again, I used gel medium to adhere the packing tape transfer I made to the mica . . . and then this time, I elected to SEW the piece of mica to a piece of fabric, and old linen of my Nonie's! It was not as hard to do as I thought and it worked just fine, but I do have an old needle on my machine.
I took the mica/fabric piece and I added it to more fabric and batting. I made a 6x6 quiltie on a 'shades of white' theme that I will sew together with lots of other white quilties made by participants in a quilties swap that finished back in April! I have a beautiful stack of quilties in my studio that were given to me for hosting the swap and I really wanted to add one of my own to the mix before doing anything.
I hope you enjoy and this post inspires you to play a bit with different materials like mica. : )
