One of my fiber groups, FANE, made several of these 4" x 12" boards. I can't remember what the boards are called, but they are a hard smooth surface on a wooden frame. Perfect for gluing things down. I was away away in the winter when they were being purchased so at the last meeting when I saw the cool things people were doing I took one board home. Now I wish I had taken more.We could do anything we wanted and some people used fabric, but mine is all paper, metal, and buttons. I should have shown you the two different Yupo papers I used before I cut them up. They are both in shades of blue and green, but one is a denser pattern than the other. I also used some pieces of metal that I had embossed on my embossing machine and then treated with alcohol inks. I used sections of a tree die cut and some buttons from my stash.

Below are three other Yupo papers in different colors and patterns. I'm hoping that they will find a way into my cards or other collages.
The sheets that I purchased are 5" x 7", but it comes in several sizes. It is rather pricey, so from now on I will use one of those great 50% off coupons from Michael's.
