I have done the unimaginable this month…
and got out my sewing machine!
Those that know me, know that I don’t sew.
It surprised me that I remembered how to thread the thing up
because I can’t remember how many years it has been since I last used it.
Usually I have to sit and read the instructions each time, so it kind of puts me off using it…but this time I actually did it!
And I discovered that the best part of sewing on cards is…
you can go crooked!!!
It adds to the rustic look with a little distressing going on 🙂
I am guessing that the machine will stay out for awhile and you will see some more “embellishments” of the crafty kind for a little while.
It is where I felt a little bit ‘arty’ with my Intense pencils
and coloured over the inking to give them some extra colour and a more autumnal look.
The eye landing on a leaf was sheer luck…but I like how it looks.
The background is done using an acrylic block.
And highlights where added here and there with Inktense pencils.
