Today was one of those dis-jointed days. A day where I worked on a little bit of everything, yet got nothing done! The kind of day when you are busy all day, but have nothing to show for it. Don’t you just hate that?
Nevertheless, I did try to work on today’s embellishing technique: using craft foam.
These pieces are the result of heating the foam and then impressing with a stamp. I then used paint to highlight the impression. Being quick to stamp while the foam is hot gives the best results. You can really see which ones had started to cool.
At this point, two things occurred to tell me it was time to call it a day: (1) Sarge had dinner ready, and (2) my sewing machine ran out of BOTH bobbin and upper thread! What are the odds? So I’m hoping to get back to this in the next day or two. I’d really like to see how heat affects these flowers. Once I have completed the whole thing, I’ll be sure and share it here.
So stay tuned.
