As I was busily creating bracelets my husband looked at one still on the frame and commented that he liked it very much. I then explained to him that he was looking at the back of it - and I turned it over to show him the front. He still liked the back better than the front *smile*!
This gave me the idea that in future work I might try combining regular punchneedle with reverse punchneedle -- the change in textures should work quite well. All I have to do now is figure out how to hide the little tags that I usually have dangling on the surface of the back of the work.
I love the idea of exploring new and exciting techniques in the format that I'm using at the time. This one will go into my 'idea' book for future pieces.
