A Little Bit of Progress

Last week, I decided to play around with the glue and tissue paper again.  That little project is just about finished.  I made six of the wallets that I've sold in the past to use as coupon holders.
I have more finished key rings to show off, too.  I MIGHT bead another one or two, it didn't take THAT long.
This afternoon I decided that it was time to get back to the river challenge that will be displayed at the Pamlico River Quilters Guild meeting in September.  I had a brainstorm about how to make the treetops in the distance.  Plastic bags!  I found a couple of green ones, then cut and scrunched and melted (between two Teflon sheets).  I also decided to take the easy way out and STENCIL my seagulls.  Here the freezer paper stencils are ironed on and the tree tops have been glued.  I still need to figure out tree trunks and what to put in the foreground.

The coupon bags are so cute! I am not familiar with that process of tissue paper and fabric. Is it pretty durable? You do great work!
