The Making of A Lacy Sunflower Garden While Playing Hooky
Yesterday I had a slow day at work so got to go home for several hours for some playtime! For me playing with my sewing machine, paints, fabric, junk and paper all made for a great time. Here is the first layer of a collage with things like a tea bag (can anyone tell me what aufgussbeutel means and what language is it?)...a lace doily, an empty sewing machine needle case, crinkly papers, candy wrappers (my latest favorite embellishment), lace, painted paper and fabrics and snaps on cotton strips! After all of these are sewn down using invisible thread I begin painting with acrylic paint and a sponge brush. After a lot of the painting was done (I thought) I added Mod Podge to seal and shine it up a bit.
