    susietex, Thanks for clearing up the Designer Fish theme. I was going to use fish as part of an accessory or clothing or hat, etc....still thinking about this one. It's going to be fun.

    Susie -- did you go to the UK ArtFest???

    I just answered this myself by going to the People,Places,Things gallery. I saw you in a picture. Tell me about the felting workshop -- who taught it?

    Hi NYJ, Coudrouy Cat, did the felting (I think). I took along all the felted journal pages from our swaps to put on the show and tell table, well they quick dissapeared off onto the workshop table! LOL.

    I did see some of the demo, they were hand needlefelting, I did say it would be faster if they all had an embellisher, you know me always willing with a helpful suggestion!!!!! LOL

    Susie -- Thanks for the info on the UK ArtFest. You must have taken a ton of things -- AND still found room for our felted pages. I'm sure you got lots of inspiration and it will show in your future pieces. I saw the picture in the Gallery where the demo showed using ONE NEEDLE to felt!!! Oh how I love my embellishing machine -- it's so much quicker.

    I tried a new felting technique, new for me at least. I put water soluable film in a embroidery hoop and felted into it, then boiled the film off. It did give quite a bit more control. I just did a small practice piece (a heart for GG) but it worked nicely.(except the silk hankie I used for accent changed color and is almost invisible..silk doesn't like high temperatures!) Anyone else tried this before? I am working on GG's hearts...started off in one direction and as usual taking off in another. My original design was a grid with several hearts, then yesterday I was playing with my felter and some fabric pieces , liked the way it turned out and am now adding hearts. NYJ, I usually start out with a sketch, like you do (this time mine was a simple grid) but am always fascinated with the changes that happen in the process.

    Val -- thanks so much for letting us know about the embroidery/felting technique. It sounds like something I MUST try.

    Yikes -- it's getting near the end of June -- so I must get to work. I'm hoping to felt this weekend and maybe I'll even get started on several other pages.

    I finished my page for GG. Here it is...there are three quotes hidden underneath all of the hearts and stuff. It was fun once I got started, it is my first "chunky" anything!!! The little heart on the right was the one felted with the water soluable film.

    that is a wonderful page!!!

    I have pippins page felted - I printed a picture then felted over parts of it - really liking how it turned out but I need to finish it off tonight - have to be careful with how many times you poke a area though I nearly had a one eyed cat <G>
    even hubby was impressed and he usually isn't <G>

    Val -- great page. I can't make out the quotes -- but I know they are only meant for GG. Terrific use of mixed media -- and I really like the hanging button.

    GG -- I can hardly wait to see your page. It sounds terrific -- especially since it impressed your husband.

    Monarch -- I'm going to finish your page this weekend -- maybe sooner and will get a picture on the thread.

    The quotes are:
    "Wherever you go, go with all your heart"
    "Only do what your heart tells you."
    "You change your life by changing your heart"
    I decided that since these are journals I might find a way to add some words!!!

    I just finished susie's page but the scan is so dark........alot brighter in person.........

    the fish has an earring and a necklace...I was thinking of putting a hat or something on her but her eyelashs got in the way....

    I sure hope you like this susie and that my interpretation was correct.......
