Spring was definately in the air when I made my last post, but its quite chilly today and we are still having to have our heating on in the evenings!
I have made some Springlike projects though over the past couple of weeks and as well as a couple of cards I got my needle and thread out and made this felt bird.
I really enjoyed making this, I haven't done any fabric sewing for a long time even though the sewing machine is permanently out but only being used for sewing on papercrafts. This project, mind you, was all handsewn. Stamping on felt was nice too. I wasn't sure how that would turn out but it goes on easy peasy with StazOn and it was a nice sharp image, so was pleased about that.
I was able to make good use of a few of the gazillion seed beads I have and some of the sequins that I seem to have accumulated. The little pink flowers are plastic sequins and quite sweet. And doing good old blanket stitch - when did I last do that! I even enjoyed that bit.
I am even well prepared for Mothers Day. Well almost. I have made one card and just have one more to make.
And I actually used some BasicGrey. I am not precious about paper at all, but kinda forgot the little stash of BG stuff that I have, so I have got it out and am going to use it! This is from the Eva range. I am trying to use up some of my blooms too and love layering them and aging them a little with ink, paint, whatever really.
And this card was for the recent Fiskarettes Challenge, which is to create a project with a Moving Part. So this little K&Co journalling wheel was ideal.
Oooh, just thought I would leave you with a couple of sneaky peeks.
Just completed a couple of projects for the May issue of Scrapbook Inspirations so be on the look out for these when that issue is available, which will probably be soon.......
