rummaging in my stuff i recently came across this big (19cm / 7,5 Inch) stamp
and as i had good results with the White setacolor fabric paint i played around
(and found this old red opaque fabric paint in the cellar)...
for my first pieces i cut out "Windows" and laid the contrasting fabrics behind them,
basted and then stitched
(thus i could use the leftover cutouts for another Piece...)
but then i thought this is too much work and simply started to sew on the stamped pieces...
of course all Hand sewn... "slow stitching";)
(did i ever mention my sewing machine died in spring? short circuit, stinky smoke... that was it...)
now i think, this could become a Project of 2017.
alternating with "empty" patches...
sometimes i consider to revitalize my
maybe not necessarily as a strong daily Project, no pressure.
but i think it could be fun again ...
too many scraps and too many stamps laying around here.
i´m thinking about that.
as this is my last post for 2016, let´s raise our glasses to a
happy new year.
may it be a healthy one...
and hopefully we will be protected from catastrophies of all kind.
thinking brexit and trump 2016 was a tough one, politically
(and we don´t even know the consequences yet...)
let us be grateful and humble...
most of us (art-bloggers) are fortunate to live quite a good life so far.
and heaven must be full of good musicians meanwhile,
it would be good to keep some on earth:)
