Feeling punk with the flu is no reason not to do Art! My arttechniquesATC's group is working out of Sherrill Kahn's "Creative Embellishments" book. Our current project is making wrapped chenille stems and fabric beads. Last year at A and S, Virginia, 2007, I made altered baby wipes for trades. Well, they went over like a fart in church, so I brought most of them home.I cut straws of different sizes because I'll want to use some on ATC's and some on larger books and canvases. Next step add glue to wipe and roll that straw up.
Here are a few close-ups of my favorite wipes. They are painted, stamped, alcohol inked, and left to dry.
Here they are rolled and ready to embellish:
Now since the stand up and roll part was done, I took to my bed:

Here are the ones I finished by adding sparkly fibers, metal fibers, beads and toulling.
