art journal -tiot sewing


This is my entry for this week's TIOT challenge which runs for the next two weeks and is lets get stitchy (real or faux) .I normally love sewing but this was a pig and the sewing is fastening the stamped material directly to the fabric paper, as you can see, no neat stitches.. sigh. Our wonderful sponsor this month is Crafty Embelies who have wonderful unusual craft pieces and some blindingly good offers.

Here are some close ups of the page. the stamped images are from de stampenwinkel - Goddess type person, indigo blue- moth Lynne Perrelli - sad tudor type stamped on a map. The main piece is a card stamped with Tim Holtz script, inked and sprayed with gold spray. the wings are german scrap and the label is from matalan.

What you sighing about girl - I like your random stitching, I think it goes with the piece just fine! Love the stamps you have chosen as well. Hugs, Cindy x

I have to agree with Cindy and say I love the random stitching, if you hadn't sighed I would have thought you loved it too! The hardest thing for me to do is random marks of anykind, I'm a line 'em up and march 'em out kinda girl, lol ♥ waving hi from the soggy hills of North Carolina :)

Your sewing machine should make friends with mine - they would get on a treat! Actually, random stitching is better I think and I love this project for the stitchy challenge! x
