Make Postcards With Us!!!

wp-1589133758384.jpg

My cousin Valerie and I are doing a Postcard art exchange. You can check out her amazing work here!

In this time, Covid-19 has had many people shelter-in-place, and reduced our methods of communication. We want to help people communicate, and we think this is a fun way to go about it! I did a postcard exchange Valerie hosted about 10 years ago, and I loved it! I made some postcards for mother’s day, and it got me thinking, we should do this on a grander scale. I reached out to Valerie and she loved the idea. So here we are, in the time of Corona, missing people, missing art galleries, missing art classes, missing each other. Let’s remedy some of that!

It’s really up to you how you want to make your postcard. Collage, fabric, embroidery, paint, whatever you want, just put it on a postcard. You can get really creative with this!

The cutoff is May 31st. An email will go out on the 2nd of June with the name and address of the person you are sending your card to. You can send it as a postcard, or put it in an envelope if you make something that would get damaged in the mail. By signing up, you get to connect with 2 different artists: the one sending you the card, and the one you are sending the card to.

For the quick Youtube tutorial on how I made the postcards in the picture, follow the jump… Continue reading

Mounting Printed Images to Canvas

I’m going to come right out and say it. This was a hot mess on the production side of things. I bought some video editing software, had nothing but issues with it, and even got a refund on it. So I’ll be the first one to say, the editing is not perfect, but you’ll still know how to make something fun and interesting by the end.

This was going to be a Patreon video, but I have something else in mind for Patreon, and that should be up by this weekend. I’ll be breaking out the drum carder, and making some batts for yarn!

Wish me luck!

Day 400… Something…

Hey guys, I just wanted to check in with everyone! See how everyone is doing? I wanted to share some things! I’m working on a new quilt pattern that will be on my Patreon. I need some feedback though. I was going to do the pattern as part of the monthly pattern download, but I also wanted to make it so there is a free one available. What are your ideas on it?

Also… LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!!!

My Tribute to Christine McConnell

Christine Finsihed

For those of you who do not know – I am a huge fan of Christine McConnell! I find her to be one of the most talented and inspirational people I have ever seen! I watched her on her short lived but well loved Netflix show, I subscribe to her Patreon, as well as her Youtube. I even take the adblock off for her videos! Now that is saying something! 
This is no where near as gorgeous as something she makes, but this is simply a tribute to a truly talented human. 
Thank you Christine for crafting, creating, and inspiring!

Patreon Exclusive Giveaway Announced

Zelda Canvas with text

You heard that right! Or maybe, you read that right! Either way…

This is the project I’ll be giving away exclusively on Patreon! It’s an 11 by 14 inch canvas collaged with printed fabric and paper. The piece isn’t quite finished, but hopefully by the end of the week, I’ll have it up on Patreon with the rules for entry. I’m not sure if it will be a random drawing, or perhaps a naming contest.
