Alwaysinmyroom if your stamp is small, you can use a stayzon ink pad to stamp onto fabric. It's waterproof and most craft stores carry them. I ve used it to make canvas tote bags as gifts. It works best on a smooth fabric not a fuzzy one like felt. I ve also found inktense watercolor pencils work well for adding color to a stamped image and are permanent after the initial drying.

we discovered the dr. who dvd collection at the library, and we have been missing so much! for years, people who like things that i like had talked about dr. who, and now i get it. i sent this in the 4x6 art swap, it started with a random sketch, and the quote really pulled it together, i'm working on another variation built around a tardis.



the text was origionally in white crayon, then i went over it in watercolors and sprinkled salt on the wet paint to create the speckles.

project- ameli earhart

my partner in the 4x6 art swap recieved today, so now i can post! this was a random swap, so the challenge was to come up with inspiration, without knowing who your partner was. it was harder than i expected. the dark arts assignment was to 'see more clearly' or sharpened vision. i wanted to project to encourage the creativity of the person who recieved it, to expand their vision. i started looking for quotes, and found this one by amelia earhart. that lead to the map patterned paper, and the color pencil sketch, along with the gears. i don't usually do mixedmedia, but i was really happy where this lead to.

project-bookmark swap

i did this for the bookmark swap in october, but forgot to post it. the drawing is ink with a color pencil background, for the assignment of 3, i  combined several of my partners themes.. the colored background was inspired from her love of color and her pinterest,  the tree of gondor from lord of the rings, the books for her love of reading. the crown and sword were from the tortall series.

project-tie dye sheet makeover

my daughters have decided their room needs a makeover. the princess sheets went to a garage sale, but i thought the solid pastel sheets were still usable. we've done tye dye t-shirts so we decided to try it with sheets. we had ideas for folding, but the results are always unpredictable. we did 3 sets of sheets, along with a few extra pillow cases with the extra dye. their fun and colorful, and our dog approves.  Grin

Rockingbearranch-thanks for posting the better picture and sharing your inspiration, it ties in with her expression and the slouched pose. Is india ink waterproof or do you paint first? I ve had good results painting over stamped images but a lot of pens bleed.

i sent out for the 4x6 swap, and i've been on pinterest, that's crafty right? i started one yesterday, and someone asked if it was a voodoo doll. it's not, but hopefully it falls into the creepy cute catagory. lots of ideas for the other 2, now i just need to nail them down.

i recieved 2 really nice pieces, but the names are at home, so i'm going to go ahead and post them, and i'll add the names later this evening.

i recognized the quote on the first one from beauty and the beast, even though it's not overly disney themed.  it happens to be one of my favorite movies. the background looks like watercolors.



the second one is an ink sketch with watercolors of a ballerina. it's hard to see in a photo, but the color on the tutu is really pretty. it was wrapped in plastic to protect it, the wavy lines aren't part of the drawing.

i always just miss the post office hours. do i have to send this one from the desk, or can i just put stamps on it and drop it in the box? i'm really happy with how turned out. it took a couple tries before the idea came together.

my partner in the tm patch swap posted them, so now i can post them too!

class-soar
house-gryffindor
project-beach patch

one of her themes was beach, and i love the sight of the sun setting over water. i used decoart ink, and painted the setting onto paper, then ironed it to transfer onto felt, and stitched the outlines of the lifeguard station and the birds

project-beaded daisy patch

this assignment asked for patience and hard work. i spent a morning at the car dealership waiting for repairs...patience..patience...i started playing with the circles on the green fabric. the stitches for the petals, and the beaded centers took a lot of attention, but i was really happy with the final result.


class-charms
house-gryffindor
project-butterfly patch

with the reparo charm, i used fabric leftover from my daughters room, to create a patch to encourage someone else.
i combined her theme of butterflies, and pregnancy loss into this patch. it was a hard theme, as we had also miscarried before having 4 healthy children. right away i knew i wanted to use this fabric. their grandmother had made them quilts using this when they were little and this was leftover.i had always meant to make pillows, but they want to redecorate so the butterflies are on their way out, or at least undercover.



the footprints stitched onto felt are a reminder of the infant that has been lost. i centered them over the largest butterfly as a symbol of hope.
