Our Mixed Media Moods "Trust"

We are back, baby! DeeDee and I took a little break but we are back with our monthly collab "Our Mixed Media Moods.

Every month one of us creates a mood board and then we create projects based on that mood board. We also create detailed process videos of our projects.

So without further ado....

Here is this month's mood board!

We are using transparent layers, transparency, fabric, stitching, text, vintage book text, wood, fibers, vintage sewing patterns, tissue paper, machine sewing, encaustic, weaving, scribbles and mark making, browns, tans, whites, creams, vintage colors


For my project I used a lot of elements from the board. I started with using the color scheme. I also used transparent layers and book text.

I used some resin papers and machine sewing. I even tried hand stitching. I stitched my chipboard word with white embroidery thread. I also tried some French knots under my main cluster. 

I used the "trust" chipboard piece as my wood element because it looked a little like wood to me. Lastly, I used clear stones for a finishing touch to my tag.



Unfortunately, due to some unforeseen technical difficulties, I was unable to have my video up in time for the release. I hope to have it up in the next few days. In the meantime, be sure to check out DeeDee's video here. Also, you can check out DeeDee's blog post. the blog post here.

Index Card A Day - Day 13

After doing a daily project for awhile, my desk tends to get a bit messy. So, instead of putting things away or throwing things away, I decided to use my scraps and extras on my desk to make a few index cards.


What is Index Card A Day?
Also known as ICAD. Basically, for 61 days, you create a piece of art on an index card. It can be as simple or as elaborate and you want. The goal is just to have a daily creative practice. While I don't follow the prompts usually, there are some to get you motivated if you choose.
