A Little Artsy.....

Ready for something totally different?....This is what happens when I just "play"
My love of fabric often collides with my love of papercrafting. Today I was playing with a few "new" things! I just received my nesting owls from Spellbinders so I cut some of my new Michael Miller Corduroy fabric with it. I ran it through my creatopia to add fabric adhesive to the backing as well.
The center image is by My Favorite Things that I stamped in versamark and heat embossed clear detail powder. Sometimes it is nice to have a white outline instead of always black or brown. I colored him in with my copics.
I had the pleasure of meeting Traci Bautista while in Anaheim and watched her demo copics on canvas.....HOW INSPIRING! I loved the freedom of just drawing free hand. This is how I created my branches and flowers that my owl is sitting on.

Now I know this look isn't for everyone....it is definitely more "mixed media"....but it is so fun to experiment and play! I hope I encouraged you to do this today!

See you tomorrow for MFT's release day!
