My friend Dot H has been playing with the Zentangle doodling and created these wonderful little samples, but the thing that caught my eye was the fastener she used on the back.
Dot is the "recycling" queen; she finds a use for many things so many of us would normally throw out. This hanging device is one of the plastic seals from things like liquid Coffee Mate. Dot says they work great on light weight pieces. She uses a white glue like Tacky to hold them in place.
I thought this was such a clever idea. After glueing and letting it dry, it can be hung using a nail or something similar.
Dot also showed me a blouse she was wearing - the closures were amazing!
She used an antique button and mounted it on a Chinese coin - how cool is that?
I loved this next piece - a cover made for a notebook or anything you want. Dot started with a piece of fusible web, laid some fabrics on top and using a press cloth, ironed in place. She then added more stuff, pressed and any area left unfilled (fusible exposed), were filled in with foils which works very well with a fusible web. The whole piece was covered with an iron on vinyl to protect, seal and make it "wipeable". A great idea.
