Tag Tuesday Lace

The theme for this week's Tag Tuesday is Lace. You can find it on
For my lace tag I decided to do some rubbings of broderie anglaise. I experimented with a variety of drawing medium:- wax crayon, graphite sticks, charcoal, pencil, Markal paint sticks, oil and chalk pastel and chalk. As the pencil worked the best, I then tried with coloured pencils, which produced the effect I wanted. I did a rubbing onto fine tissue paper, then printed it off onto ordinary typing paper, and used this to make a design of a lace fan.
