Firstly a belated "Happy New Year" to you all and I hope that you all had a fabulous Christmas and got lots of crafty goodies from the big man!
I am not big on setting new year resolutions, mainly because I never keep them but I have made some crafty ones and those are:-
Carry on from what I started to learn at the end of last year getting more involved in textile art, helped by getting a Pfaff embellisher machine for Christmas - thanks Santa!
Start drawing and carving my own stamps (My lovely blog friend Donna says I have to)
Do more art Journaling especially as I have a collection of blank ones.
Use the supplies I have and STOP buying loads more stuff (the most likely to be broken!)
So I start this year with the end of last year and a piece I made for Donna (she who says I have to start drawing and making my own stamps) for a christmas present (we are both big tea drinkers)
using a 16" x 6" canvas as my size guide I cut a piece of linen big enough to mount onto the canvas.
The tea cups were all cut of of fabric backed with heat & bond using templates I had cut out with my Silhouette Cameo, they were then stiched using free motion to the linen. I then added the text again using free motion.
I love the randomness that free motion gives to the look.
Whilst I am really enjoying learning a new craft I appreciate that you are currently following my blog with an interest in paper crafts and mixed media, I would be interested to know if you think that I should set up an alternative blog and leave this one just for inky and painty stuff?
Thanks for stopping by
