Fabric and fibers at Just for Fun week 26

Here we are at Just for Fun. the last month of the week and the last Of  Zoe's material girls choice and how apt it's fabric or fibers :)
For this I made a sandwich with some organza and put in snippet of organza ,silks and fantasy film, then free embroidered with metalic thread , when I was happy that all was secure in the sandwhich I attacked it with the heat gun which distressed the organza on the outside and some of the fabric on the inside. I'm quiet happy with the result but I'm sure with practice it could be even better :) Mounted onto a beer mat painted with acrylic paints
Don't forget to check out the other amazing things the team have created to inspire you :)
Have fun

Wow! This is fabulous Von. I bought some organza last week. I can see that I'm going to have to attack it with my heat gun.

Gorgeous colours, sounds a bit scary taking a heat gun to organza but it produces a great textured piece. xx
