My latest creation!Okay, for days now I've been saying I'm going to go down into my creative space and be creative. I want to come up with a few things that I could make and try to sell. I love to sew fabric collages together, so after looking through a few Somerset Magazines to inspire me...this is what I came up with. I want to make a few more to see how they evolve, but I'm happy with the results I came up with today. If you happen to stop by anytime soon, please leave me a comment and tell me what you think?
I started with torn fabric, then added netting and batting behind it. I then proceeded to add scraps of this and that to the front. I laid a length of ribbon down one side, with a tea stained doiley on the lower portion. I printed out some lettering...this one says "Friends Are Angels on Earth" . The words are covered with netting. I then added trim to the bottom with lots of vintage buttons. I used an old piece of jewelery to embellish and also added a vintage print of a cat. I then added a hanger out of netting with silk ribbon and more buttons and bows for trim. I coated the vintage heart button at the right corner with vintage gold glass glitter. Once complete, I sewed it all together with a piece of fabric on the back, then coated the entire piece lightly with a fabric glitter glue. I'm never quite sure about my creations, I think that I am too critical. I believe that I think too much when I create and must learn to just create, don't think!
This picture is a big fuzzy, but it does show the words and the cat somewhat.
This is a good picture of the completed project.
What do you think? Comments are greatly appreciated.
