What a fabulous weekend I've just had down at The Stamp Attic :) I just wanted to say a HUGE thankyou to everyone who came on my art journalling workshops. It was so great to meet blog friends in real life, and spend time with you :) And a special thankyou to Wendy for looking after both me and Sophie so wonderfully. Photos will follow tomorrow, but for now I'm sharing a card I made using one of Kristen's digi images. It's Mixed Media Monday over at kpink - my kind of day :)
After printing out Kristen's 'growing tree' image onto a piece of textured white card, I followed the lines of the digi image with my sewing machine.
I love this tree. It makes me think of a tree growing sparkly jewels or sequins. I'll definitely be using this image again!
Dropping the feed dogs (the zig zaggy metal bits under the foot that feed the fabric through as you sew) and putting a darning foot on the machine, rather than a regular foot, means I can move the paper where I want it, following the lines of the tree.
Once I'd done this, I turned the card over and used a needle to prick some holes, and sewed beads onto some of the 'branches'. I then mounted this piece onto folded white card - a simple yet elegant card. Voila!!
If you love this image too, head on over to Kristen's etsy shop here.
For £1.95 Kristen will send you this image to use in your own artwork. Using digi images is so easy. Just print out the image in the size you require. At it's simplest, print out the image and paint those circles in bright colours, or glue on sequins. Have fun!!
