Scroll to bottom.
In the latest issue of Somerset Studio: explore the Artist Portfolio of Jeanne Oliver, art inspired by the movie “Amelie,” and quirky vintage photos adorned with colorful handmade hats. Find tutorials for altered birdhouses that are perfect for spring, experimenting with encaustics, and weathered collages by Amy Wilcutt, see some fun washi tape ideas with Mary Beth Shaw, learn how Lynne Perrella interprets the Ballet Russe with alphabet letters, and my own article - Simple Stitch + Stash (using studio scraps, in peril of being discarded, to build collages on canvas pages).
Sneak preview of my article in previous blog post HERE.
With scraps of lace, miniature starfish, and bits of mica, I began using my stash on the pages of a pre-made fabric journal. I had so much fun stitching that I carried on playing with thread in different ways. I found the practice to be very relaxing and addictive and before I knew it I was moving on to a second book. I have quite a stash of these - maybe we could meet somewhere and have a class? Would be fun!
Enter a comment just below to be entered for the drawing. Good luck!
We have a winner! Ozge Basagac!!
Thanks to all who came over here to enter. I appreciate all your kind words.
Hope you'll stop by again! I also hope if you take up simple stitching you will
share your work - would love to see.
