Happy new week everyone.
As March is starting to wind down, I thought I would share another spring page for Valerie's challenge at Art Journal Journey. You have until the end of the month to join us.
Spring is a time for some new light weight and colorful clothes. You may buy them. You may just pull out the old things which can feel like getting new clothes when you haven't worn them for several months. Someone can give you something new to wear, or you can sew them.
My page today is all about sewing a new outfit.
I started with some left over pink paints which I spread with an old credit card as well as sponged on with a paper towel. I created a border using some paper tapes as well as a piece of white metallic paper trim. That gave my ladies a place to sit and talk about what they were sewing for the spring season. You can see it is not quite spring clothes season for them yet by their outfits, but they are very excited for some new pretty dresses to wear.
The striped piece is the back of a sticker sheet. I thought the assortment of colors looked like a color card showing the latest seasonal fabric colors. Then I stitched a bit. I added a whole lot of sewing notions. Some were stickers and some were fussy cut from a magazine page. I also added a coat check ticket I had in my stash. Finally I added some little flowers I had in my stash and gave some of them a white paint dot center. The words are some multicolored stickers.
Although the spring season is here for quite awhile longer, the spring theme at Art Journal Journey will be around for only a few more days.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
