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!!!


  1. Gorgeous work, love all the fabric projects and your Feb page is yummy. I've done my background but not decorated it yet xx

  2. Wohohoho! LOVE the sewing projects - especially that book :0) And the Feb page is absolutely wonderful.... I'm toying with the idea of buying the Distress paints, how did you find them? x x x

  3. Forgot to say Fabulous ATC's! (I might know who they're for!) And no-one would ever dream they were the first you've ever made... hope you're hooked now.... everyone you know will want a piece of your art :0) x x x

  4. Fantastic work with the sewing machine and your little journal is out of this world having seen it in Real Life. Feb page is cool love the heart stencil in the background.xx

  5. That small journal with the tag, is wonderful, I really love all the work you've done on it. The ATC's are brilliant too. You've inspired me to stamp onto some fabric for my next make, I can't wait to get on with it. I really like your calendar journal page too. I love your ideas Christine. Michelle x
