Vintage Sewing Hanging

I created this  piece for a 5x7 Vintage Sewing Themed swap over at Kindred Souls.
It's off to Idaho today.
Many of the pieces on this are from an antique shop where I pick up quite a bit of sewing items.
Patterns, pins, buttons, trim.... Even the doll hanger.

This image is transferred onto muslin using Transfer Artist Paper or TAP. LOVE this product! It really is one of THE BEST transfer papers I have used.

The Dress form is one of my favorite Tim Holtz Bigz Die. I worked it on paper first, with acrylic paint, added the punchinella, then mounted it to another dressform cut from Grungepaper for stability.

Then lovely button is vintage, and the piece of fabric is silk, from a piece of Artsy Fartsy Fiber by Ten Seconds Studios. The skirt is a coffee filter I dyed using colorwashes by Stamp Zia.

These closeups may show the texture of the Dress form and the color variation of the skirting.

Gelli Girl Day

I was so lucky earlier this week to spend some time getting my Gelli Girl on with my friend Rockin Robin.

She hasn't had a lot of time to play with her plate, so we had some one on one time.
These are prints I pulled.

My FAV of the day! I used 2 Crafters Workshop stencils (argyle & woman) and the alpha from Dylusions.

This print was done before the above. The deep purple dots were from one of those brayers that you can replace the roller with another design.

Cool crafters workshop alpha stencil.

Another crafters workshop stencil. The circles are made from packaging plastic,

The filers are thick foam stamps, stamped onto the Gelli plate

All in all, a really productive and fun day!

Tag: music theme

This tag was made for a theme on one of the groups I'm in.

I used one of the Winged Things girls. A classic Tim Holtz by Stampers Anonymous! I stamped her with archival on Kromkote, then again on a heavy vellum.

I took the wings from the vellum. I hammered copper wire in the wing shape, laid them ontop & added glossy accents.

I adhered the vellum girl over the Kromkote piece which adds a soft layer.

The background was done with sprays & a Crafters Workshop Stencil.
I then covered it with tissue Wrap.
Lightly rubbed with Dazzle gold by Tsukineko, and embossed with detail clear. I added a layer from die cut paper, inked. The music sheet is vintage, inked with Distress Stain & Perfect Pearl Mist in Red.

I stamped a D in the star using Vintaj metal stamping letters & hammered it for texture.

The ribbon is hand dyed dupioni silk.

Floral tag

This ones not late, yet! The theme is Floral Challenge .

I had the pieces cut from both crinoline & vintage papers, pre-inked. I applied soft gel medium to the paper petals to try & get them to form.

The background was done with a combination of Distress Ink & Stains, a Crafters Workshop stencil and Radiant Rain.

The background on this is just so lovely live. I'll never capture the beautiful shimmer & texture the technique offers.

Frozen Smiles!

A long over due but finally finished tag!

My mission is to use some of the MANY tags I did background techniques to as well as a stash if precut dies and embossed papers.

The background is embossed with the snowflake texture fade from Tim Holtz . It's inked and gone over with Rock Candy Stickles.

The snowflake trim is an On The Edge die sprinkled with dry Rock Candy Glitter.

The image is from wrapping paper. I had glued on some chunky clear glitter.

The FROZEN SMILES is from packaging I saved and the snowflake is a ghost shape from Heidi Swapp.

Maybe now that this is FINALLY going out the door, the weather will turn!
