A little celebration…

June 8, 2007 at 9:21 pm (ATC's, beading, fabric dyeing, plus size inches, prize draw)

to carry on with my happy dance a little longer… I thought I might do a prize draw (thanks Kari for the suggestion)… the picture below is a piece of fabric I’m working on at the moment…

yes… I know it’s still black and white… but I’ll add a little colour when I start stitching.. I intend to make a few different things with this… the first page in my Bead Journal Project … an ATC for Helen Cowan… a few ‘plus size’ inches for a swap over at Fiber Art Traders (a yahoo group)… so I will make an extra ATC and an extra few ‘plus size’ inches… if you would like the chance to win one please leave a comment… then next Friday I will draw out the winners… there you are a little prize draw to help me celebrate a little…

    I love the letter stamps – maybe I noticed them first because I have been looking for some alphabet stamps on line today! Will look forward to seeing the finished piece !

    Ooh, how tantalising! Now, I know what inchies are, but what are plus size inchies?

    I can’t wait to see color added. I love to see pictures too. Visual arts are just that- visual! Got to add your site to my favorites list.

    Hi Marie, Kari and freebird,

    thanks for taking the time to leave comments…

    the letter stamps are wooden printer blocks… I found them in a local ‘posh junk shop’ … they must of been six / eight wooden trays of different fonts.. however they had been well picked over… so I picked W and X because it had the largest range of fonts left so I’ve got nine W and X’s in various fonts and sizes… and one set of my initials…

    ‘plus size’ inches… the swap I’m involved in … have decide to make ‘inches’ – one & half inches sq – as they are easier to work on…thus ‘plus size’ inches…

    Oh! I’m on someone’s favorites list… thank you… I really am overwhelmed by the response / emails I’m getting since I started blogging… I have in the past felt quite isolated… but since I’ve taken to blogging I feel inspired to create… not only so that I can post lots of pictures but because people are interested in what I’m doing and taking the time and trouble to contact me….

    thanks you
    best wishes

    I found your blog through BJP and as I wandered around the site, I wondered if you had seen Notes from the Voodoo Cafe? It’s by Rice Freeman-zachery and she is an altered clothing artist. She is so funny!!
    http://voodoonotes.blogspot.com/ Check her out and thanks for sharing your art!
    cheers, Denise

    I don’t remember where I found your blog, but I love the things you are doing, and this piece of fabric you have made. I also love black and white with a little red thrown in. I love the very graphic look of this piece, with all of the letter stamps.

    I shall be a regular visitor!

    I just love the Voodoo Cafe… my BJP has hit a problem so I’ve put it out of sight for a few days… I find that ofter works..

    thanks for the kind words Gwen… I wish I lived nearer you a ‘hot stone’ massage looks wonderful… especially as it’s so cold here.. I was actually wearing my winter boots yesterday it was so cold and raining….
