Inbetweeners - Busy Lizzie!

Following my e-mail to our members yesterday, Liz Barraclough responded with some photographs of her latest experiments - lots of different techniques on display here, I imagine she will have a queue at her table at our next meeting! 

The above photo shows the striking effects that can be achieved by combining Angelina Fibres, Angelina Film and textile. 

This is a cyanotype print made using lace as a mask. 
Cyanotype is a photosensitive printing process, first used in 1842 
(thank you Wikipedia!) 

These two photos show what Liz says is her first foray into weaving. 
Pretty impressive and very inspiring! 

Finally, some fabric which has been wrapped around rusted objects 
and buried, then dug up, to be used in future projects. 
I wonder what it's like to plan ahead?!

Thanks to Liz for sharing her work with us.
