I have joined my first ATC (artists trading cards) swap, so have been trying to get into that
however, the theme is spring, and this isn't looking too “springy”......wonder what I should do next?
perhaps starting on such a dark background wasn’t the most clever idea?
I was the winner of a blog giveaway from Kayla Coo - I am now the proud owner of one of her brooches!! thank you!!
so, I think this piece was definitely inspired by her work (which is fantastic - go look!) but am missing the lighter element.......perhaps I will put this away and start on another one
the thing is; I was hoping to do a few more pieces before my trip
will she do it?
I want to enter a show......see how that goes - so need to get it in gear!
I think I will be able to do some work on my trip too - my mother has a beautiful sewing machine that I used last time I visited......but it is having all the little bits of fabric, thread, beads, buttons, etc lying around that I will have to fine somewhere........maybe a few garage sales would do the trick!
I am having fantasies about going to a garage sale of a little old lady and finding bags of old buttons and little hat accessories (there is probably a fancy name for that)........lace, ribbons, etc
anyway.........a BIG thank you to everyone that has stopped by and especially those who have made comments -
