i like to make stuff

I am slowing awakening my inner Dina Wakley and playing with spray inks. I'm not ashamed to admit that at first I was a bit intimidated, but now I love it.
I was a guest blogger over at Creating Keepsakes blog and shared one of my favorite techniques for using Tattered Angel's Glimmer Mist & Glimmer Screens to add a pop of color & create your own unique background paper.

The pictures are of me working on Quincey's quilt and her crib bumper (I never did finish the crib bumper project. Sandi, don't be disappointed in me ;) b/c I still have big plans for your fabulous fabric.

Studio Calico yellow paper; Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Screens (stencil); American Crafts paper, letters, sewing machine rubon, dress form chipboard sticker

~~ah, it feels so great to be home.

I thought I was the only one who worked best sitting on the floor...I love being able to occupy the entire living room carpet with supplies. I always see pictures of these wonderful craft desks. They never provide the space I need. Here's to floor crafting!

I really must try to experiment more with the mists that are available. It gives a great look.
LOVE the fabric you're working with. I have some of Sandi's fabric but have only made little things (mini books). PLEASE show us the finished quilt - I'm sure there are a lot more ladies besides me that would love to see!

I am a little bit intimidated by glimmer mist. Party the cost. What the heck will I do with $40 worth of sprayable inks if I can't work it out!? But I want to play with them and this layout is fabulous and makes me want to try them!

amydc said...

Clearly, I am not alone in coveting your cabinet thingy behind you in both this layout post & what you happen to be perched upon on your lovely cover of CK. Please, please, please share the color & anything else you did to get it to look like it does. It's fabulous.

Rebekah Williams said...

What fabric are you working with in the picture. It's beautiful!!

Jessica said...

debevans said...
