Spring Challenge - part 2

So last week I set you a task of collecting 'warm' materials to make your challenge project as well as a neutral for the background which could be pieced together if you wanted. (Review last week's post). You also needed to come up with a plan or two of ideas for what you wanted to create.

It's been a very hectic week with visitors and a wedding to attend so both Emma and I had little time to work on our challenge pieces but we did manage to progress. Emma used free-motion stitching to attach her applique. She started with the balloons...

Blog Challenge Invite!

It's definitely time for another blog challenge but this blog challenge is going to be a little different because my daughter Emma decided she wanted to challenge me rather than have me challenge everyone... so for this challenge, Emma will be setting the rules and creating her own piece while I create a piece of my own.

Finishing my August Challenge Piece

Posted by on 5 September 2018 | 2 Comments

This week I wanted to finish off my challenge piece. It's not much use if it is left sitting around unfinished so this week I'm making sure that doesn't happen. I've been thinking about what method to use. Although I have loved creating it, using the different elements (words) to work and especially working with the silk, I'm not sure the overall design is something I would hang on my wall. Knowing this, I've decided to look at different sections of it to perhaps chop up for a series of mini displays.

This week I plan to use 'shiny' as my word but I didn't really finish with my shadows from last week so now that I've had a bit more time to think about them, I've decided I might paint the shadows. I tried my Salvia Sticks but found they were not giving me the effect I wanted - I tested first!
