I like it, but want much more dramatic effects, so will try again when time allows, to see what I can do. I also want to try using some of my hand-dyes, as my buddies do!
I also tried my hand at some inkjet transparencies. My wonderful Swedish cousin Eva has been so generous to share many, many pictures of my mother as she was growing up. Strange, isn't it, that I have to resort to Sweden to get pictures of my American mother!! Mom just isn't very sentimental and NEVER saved a thing, so when her mother passed away, Mom threw everything away (quilts and all GASP!!!). Eva, has uncovered many old letters from my grandmother to her family in Sweden, and you may recall the wonderful book that she compiled and sent to me last year. She has also sent me a dvd with copies of the letters and photos. So, this morning, I got busy copying pictures, adjusting them for inket transparencies, and then printing them. What fun!!! Here is Mom as a very little girl:
