Lutradur and Lace

In the new online magazine Fibre and Stitch, Carol McFee explained how to combine Lutradur and Lace. I could not resist and gave it a try.
Since I want to make a cover to keep my gardening catalogs, my piece is large and cut in two. The front will have the lace and scrim on it, the back will be just painted.
This is the first step: placing bit of lace and scrim on the lutradur.
I have applied a first layer of paint:
Then another layer of paint:
Then some foil rubbing and paint stick, and some FME. Below are pictures of the front and of the back of the cover.

Bonjour! Thanks for stopping by my blog - hope to see you again sometime.

I think your L&L piece is lovely - it's very different in style to the piece I did, but that's the joy of these things - they can all be so different and yet equally beautiful.
