Cushion for Hillarys Blinds County Craft Competition

Can't quite believe how long it is since I last blogged.  I have made a cushion out of material supplied by Hillarys Blinds for a competition. I fussy cut an 18" square and raised the flowers up using the trapunto technique. I then quilted the background with the free motion embroidery technique.

This and that...

Bit of a catch up I am behind again. Been busy with my sewing machine. Firstly is the piece we made at the last play day 1st Feb. Many layers of material, free machine embroidery, hand embroidery and paper. it was based on an article in Sew Somerset by Kristen Robinson. It is one of three the other two have yet to be done.

After completing this piece I wanted to use my sewing machine again and had an idea for a small journal with tags.  It was made from Saunders Waterford watercolour paper and vintage notebook paper.

Have recently been given an Atc so needed to make one to give back. I made 3 mixed media with free machine embroidery. These were my first Atc's ever.

And last of all is my February Art Journal Calendar using Ranger distress paints on a Gelli plate and Dylusions ink sprays the new Dylusions colours are scrummy, go check them out at The page isn't quite finished yet. It needs an image or two!!!

December 2012

Here is the December  Calender page ready to decorate. The stamps are stampotique DT tangled enthusiasm (dressed up for Christmas!) and tangled lights which I also used for October but I just love them. The background was done with a Gelli plate and Golden Paints from AFTH.

Gelli Art

Spent a fabulous day at AFTH with Kate Crane getting to grips with Gelli plate printing.. The journal page background was one of many done on the day.  When I got  home I had a go at my Dylusions Journal cover.  Pics of the front and back.  I am enjoying using my new journal with Golden paints, Dylusions Inks and paints and my old Jo Sonja paint. Supplies from AFTH.
