I subscribed to Lesley Riley’s 52 pick-up, which is a year of weekly creativity prompts to encourage more regular art and creativity. Feeling accountable to a supportive group of other people is helping me to form better habits.
And every day I succeed in spending time creating, I get a star!
In real life the stars look better than they do in the photo, which often happens with glitter and metallics. They’re foiled, a technique I’ve had a lot of fun with for years. You can get the foils and special glue from Jones Tones.
But, breaking news! and not good, although definitely a first world problem, Dharma Trading, the go-to source for all things fibre arty, posted that the foil is being discontinued and they (Dharma) are looking for a replacement. In the month since they posted, the more conventional colours have been snapped up but they still have purple, green and blue.
I fused the square fabric onto the Disco Dots to have a little more body to stand up to the writing and foiling and free motion quilted along the lines.
