A Swap for all Seasons Fabric Collage winter swap.

Here is the Fabric Collage I made for my swap Partner Valery in the Winter Swap at A Swap for all Seasons. I had never made a fabric collage before and the idea I had did not quite work the way I wanted. Valery liked Pinks, buttons, has 3 cats and liked a shabby style. So this was the final product

I sewed layers of CathKidston fabrics with a sheer white. Added some personal painted canvas pieces(I painted the cats). I hand sewed the flowers that were cut from another fabric piece. The tuling, feathers and buttons were added as trim along with the beaded fringe and ribbons. I was going to add beading along the edge of the flowers but it did not look right so I added Distress stickles to the edges. I also added a little gem topped pin in the tule . Valery liked it.

And here is a reminder of what My swap partner sent to me. I just love them both. She could not decide which to send so she sent me both. How sweet is that. I cannot decide which I like better. If you missed the original link for this post you can view all the details here.

Thanks to Linda over at A swap for all seasons for another wonderful swap. Can't wait for the next one........
Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day. Angela
