collage squares {video}

i taught a collage class this past saturday and wanted to have collage samples of exactly what i was talking about. the types of paper, the purpose behind the paper selection, and at least a few options of other things to do with your collage.
here is a short video of the collage squares i made for class.

i think my favorite one is the little guy with the paper hat and hand sewing. 

which one is your favorite?

these were so much fun- thinking of making more and putting in my etsy store for the holidays.

happy monday.

sewingswag {custom bags}

do you know that i sew?.... almost becoming a lost art now a days; but me......

i come from a long line of seamstresses. both of my grammas sewed as well as my mom. 
clothes, furniture slip covers- they did it all. and they did it superbly. if i could describe the shirt i wanted, my gramma could sew it for me without a pattern.

i used to sew clothes for my kiddos when they were little, but as they grew up- (and they could voice their own opinion), slowly that changed.

then i found sewing on paper..... and love that almost as much as sewing on fabric. i don't hesitate for a moment to go and throw my paper under the sewing machine.

 but i have found a bit of a balance however between art and sewing in the form of bags and my dolls (current doll i am working on).

both the bags and dolls make great gifts and i am always open to custom orders. size, color, lined with plastic, maybe no tell me. 

happy friday.

don't you just love it when your package from stencilgirl is waiting for you when you get home from work?! i do!!

i had new stencils arrive the end of this last week and couldn't stand not taking them down to the studio.

here is a quick peek of how i like to use my stencils to tame a busy background from my youtube channel.

happy monday.

wanna come to a collage class?! i will be teaching saturday, october 14 at  Mosiac Studio.

making a few samples to get ready for the class.

super excited to teach as we will be moving from simple collage to a bit more complex by adding paint and ink. our focus will be on freedom, play and exploration of paper.
