The idea is to make something each day during February (more info here) without recycling old projects. I found the above link on Kim's blog (Skybelle Arts) and think it a great idea. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I didn't find out about it in time to sign up. However, since I actually did create something yesterday and again today, I'm going to play along separately. :) Which means, of course, I can make my own rules. It will be a good way to experiment with techniques and projects that I've had on my list of "To Do" for quite some time.
So, here are days 2 and 3, since I didn't start on day 1.
Day 2: Amelia brought some onesies for me to do something with. Saturday, I made the little appliqué and finished it during a Law & Order rerun. Day 3: Today, I wanted to try freezer paper stenciling. See my little stencil in the upper left corner? I know this one looks a little boyish; any suggestion on how I could "girl" it up?Later, I might go by Michael's and get some tee's for Mila and Max so I can continue playing with appliqué and paint. Super quick.
Kim is making some rubber stamps. I've made some in the past, but have not done so in a long time. I do have my little carving tools and a brand new carving block. Correction...somewhere I saw a new carving block, but it certainly wasn't with my carving tools. Annnddd, I bought a new black ink pad, but don't know where that is either. (Rian cleaned up her studio; I may have to clean mine just to find where I've stashed stuff.)
Here are some of the stamps, I carved several years ago...including the one I did of daughter Erin. At least I have pieces of old blocks...I think I can get several days out of these ideas, but I have lots of other things to try listed in my journal (and on scraps of paper stuffed around my desk). And my embellisher-- poor neglected embellisher, untouched for months--that will be fun to experiment with.
