Book Review:Fabrics and Florals

Fabrics and Florals by Jill Miller
I have always wanted to experiment with Fabric but don't have any sewing skills
by any stretch of the imagination much less a sewing machine.So it was a very happy moment
when I discovered this book
Chapter one: No Sew Fabrics
The other thing I find very helpful  is that by each project she will put Beginner, Intemediate, or Advanced
I think this is great because you can start wherever you are comfortable and as you skills improve
you'll have a project that will suitable for the new level
Chapter 5:Salvage Scrapbooking
I found very interesting because this a way to preserve your kids old onsies, or preschool years or
any person in your family whose memory you wanted to preserve.
Chapter 9:Silk Flowers and Foliage
This chapter is awe inspiring.Normally I hate too many florals on a layout but this is not the case.  It has
collage feel all over it .  There are some projects that incorparatae digital elements  that can be used but
definetely not mandatory
Chapter 12:Printing and painting on canvas
You can learn to print on canvas and cotton or use Fabric Paints with Paper just to mention a few of the
projects
I am only showing a part of the table  of contents there were alot of cool projects in the book that didn't
take up a lot of time or money which is why I strongly recommend checking this book out

I am trying to figure out how to post these layouts without the blogger app.
I got a new phone and ever since I reformatted the SD card no more room for Blogger app😑. Was it a great app?
No. Was it useful enough? Yes kinda like oatmeal , not spectacular but the health benefits are what you need.😝 I am still editing pics with the sketch camera app.
Most of the colors came from the Inspirational​ themed kit and the Yellow Stripes from the High Five Edition. Well I hope this works

I believe I figured out a way to add these layouts. I have to post through Instagram on my phone first. Then add it to Blogger via my phone . If only I had more room on my SD card. Anyhooo....I finished Waiting by Ha Jin. I also finished Prey by Michael Crichton. (Author of Jurassic Park) and started on The Client by John Grisham, saw the movie years ago thought I would try the book.I used the High Five Edition . The photos were edited by Avairy app for the color app and Sketch Camera app so I could use them with the bright colors.  I miss traditional  layouts since school is out I will try to do my project life photo album.
