I'm in a small fabric postcard exchange group with a few other Australians and the current theme is "home" and despite trying to do something avant-garde or even experimental, I have been drawn back to a sweet country look again!
I am really trying hard not to buy new fabric (remnants from garage sales / trash n' treasure markets don't count of course!) so I have made my postcards with some Daisy Kingdom fabric I have had for at least 10 years, probably longer. They were actually a lot more time consuming to make than I expected (mostly from trying to fray long strips of fabric) but I am happy with the result. I stamped the sentiment with a set of tiny rubber alphabet stamps and the little hearts on the lace are Scribbles dimensional paint.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday! The sun is shining here and I am off to cook breakfast before an art filled day.
PS Finally tried my Dremel yesterday - I have only had it for several years but been to scared to use it (it was all the safety information that put me off - I had visions of body damage)! Still not confident but at least I've got it out of the box and had a quick run through with my 17 year old son (Zach). The reason for this massive effort - I have foolishly signed up for a Nina Bagley workshop next month at the Art Retreat in Melbourne and I need to drill holes in stones. At the time of registering over a year ago, I thought it would be good to push my boundaries, but now that it is only a few weeks away, I am thinking this was not such a good idea!! My other workshops are with Misty Mawn (and I can't paint faces so that is going to be interesting too!!) and Traci Bautista, so it should be an awesome weekend if I can get my act together! Only 5 more days of work before I have a whole three weeks of holidays!!!!
