My husband's uncle (or to be more precise my step-uncle-inlaw!) is having his 60th birthday soon (shhhh). A friend of his has decided to put together a book for him and has asked all family and friends to produce something up to A4 size, paper-based, to insert.
Of course my eyes glazed over at the prospect given my new-found paper quilt making skills!!! (See last post).
This was fun to make. The background is a picture I took of the hand-dyed banners, which hung from trees at his wedding last year, printed in colour of course and then copies of pictures we had of him and his family in black and white collaged over the top. This was then mounted on to medium vilene. They were then stitched on with a zigzag in colours of the banners. We even found an old penny printed in 1949 - the year of his birth (sorry Dave it's out in the open now!!) and stuck that on with superglue. It was fun to do and I hope a welcome addition to the book!
