Lovely work aroze, these old photos really look great on a fabric background.  Love all the sparkly swirls!

I also received a beautiful piece from aroze, I'll get it posted up this morning Smiley

Here's my gorgeous altered ancestor from Amaryllisroze.  She chose one of my favourite pictures of my mom and dad from their wedding dance.  I love all the sparklies and jewels, its neat how the outside edges of the fabric are aged.


Thank you so much Smiley

Thanks! I had some fabric you can run thru the ol' ink jet printer so I decided to have a go at it. I really like how they are really similar but different at the same time.

Let me tell you, metallic thread its a bitch to sew with.

Hey, everyone! I'm back. Dang, I have a lot of catching up to do.

Sadly, there is no mail here from phizzy, and it looks like am has not received my photo yet. Bleh.  Sad

Aroze, your fabric photos are lovely!

My grandfather just flew in from Spain, and boy... (you know the rest) Cheesy

I love the old book cover phizzy used for this. Check out how amazing even the back looks:


But the front is far superior! Here he is, all full of himself, and surrounded by meaningful symbols:


Thank you so much, phizzy! I really love this. I can't wait to show it to my dad (that's his dad in the photo.)
