Today I finished a paper fabric piece and have it listed in my Etsy store ... the in progress post will have the link as to how to make the paper fabric ... this was very interesting to do and stretched my muse some .... the bottle hangs at the end of the piece and is a recycled medical vial

I have been challenged to create an ATC with the theme of a stripper by the name of "Sugar Velvet Hips" so here she is .... I chose a Silver Screen Trivia card as my back ground and used one of those great pin-up girl images from the 1940's used a little accent flourish stamping and a fancy font from the computer for her name
well I am not so sure about progress but at least I am working on it ..... lol .... this is a technique making paper fabric I learned about on ABC Altered Books Yahoo group (there is a post on Elizabeth's blog showing the steps to get to this point) so naturally I had to try it out ... now I am working on doing something with it .... so I cut it into strips and did a paper weaving and cutting fringe .... sewed the edges so they would stay together ... now I have collaged some thing on top of it and I will post more progress later ...

This is a friends book she did the theme I had been saving stuff for to make one for me so I had things to hand and go this knocked out in 2 days ..... my husband had an old Dymo lable maker that has metal tape in it so I used that and did alcohol ink treatments on them ... this friend LOVES metal
