I have been crazily kitting away for this weekend and have had to hold myself back from pulling the sewing machine out, about 100 times, or so. I have to say, THAT is an achievement for me, you know..staying on task.
I "pre-ordered" Alisa Burkes new book coming out this summer and it seemed to calm my need to stitch, kinda...
As I was helping Ben build the Great Wall of China out of styrofoam, I remembered Alisa talking about making stamps with a wood burning tool.. so I thought I would try it, you know..because we were already messing around with styrofoam....I did not want to waste it (thanks to Tracie).
so... I tried it...and..
I made stamps and stamps and more stamps. (these are COMPLELTY different from rubber stamps...so don't be confused or worried) These are for paint..and ink...and fabric...and felt...oh gosh (insert squeel)
Yikes...and yippee....I am excited to let you know that I will be back at Grove's in Pennsylvania JULY 29-30 for a "12 Days of Christmas"in July class (details to follow soon) and I will be incorporating some of these techniques, as well as a sprinkling of Prima..some felt...buttons...stitch..Helmar...who knows!!!!
Okay, I need to pull myself back onto the wagon and get on the road to Art-Full Horizons...
Have a GREAT weekend...see you when I get back!
p.s. If you click the link about and decide to buy Alisa's book, please let me know so that we can create together!!!
