Hello my lovelies. I hope all is well for you and your families. Every day is an adventure nowadays. We find solutions and adapt to the daily challenges.
It’s Sunday. Hooray! Tomorrow is the start of another week. I plan on trying different things this week. In fact, I have already tried something quite different yesterday but I’ll tell you about that after I have revealed my day 33 messing around with art supplies effort …..
My out dated map is coming in handy as you can see. Once again pen dots and doodles, stencilling and shading with water colour pencils. What you may not spot right off …. is that this page spread is upside down!!! I got so excited about working on this one that it’s upside down!!! Silly me. Oooops. I don’t care it was fun to work on and who cares if I have to turn the art journal upside to read the text. The upsideness gives it character.
As well as my upside-down page spread, I worked on a mixed media fabric project. Paint on fabric is something that I don’t have a great deal of experience with. I had a go several years ago but didn’t pursue it.
I started by spreading some paint around on a piece of calico backed with iron-on interfacing for stability.
And then I added some stencilling …..
And more stencilling and stamping …..
I plan on layering some fabric in the form of a wonky house, perhaps some fabric trim and buttons for embellishing. And then I’m going to add some quilting, either by hand or machine. This piece, once finished, and if it’s good enough will be framed and hung on the wall. It will remind me of the lockdown days and just how we can find solutions and adapt to many different situations.
With it being Sunday, I will be doing some household chores in readiness for the week ahead. The washing machine will be whirring away washing bedding and I will most likely do a bit of cooking. And if I can find something worthy of binge watching on TV, I will do that while working on hexagons. At the moment it looks like it’s going to be a reasonably nice day. Other than go to and from the waste bin I shall not be wandering around the neighbourhood searching for people to socialise with. Stay home and be well is the order of the day for this household.
Well, my lovely friends, that seems to be my report for today. I hope you all have a super cosy day doing things you enjoy doing. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies. Most importantly stay home and save a life.
