Just a bit of this and that.
Look at these stamps I made at "Make It University" in Houston! Jane Davila taught a wonderful short little workshop full of tons of tips. I carved that little "pomegranate" out of Speedy Cut. I like Judy Perez's pomegranate design so so so much better than mine. I was a bit stumped on what kind of stamp to make with the fun foam, so I resorted to my beloved pattern of river rocks. First I made them into an archway, but I didn't love that, so I just added more to create a general background type pattern. It was made by cutting fun foam and sticking it onto a sheet of plexi. The fun foam actually comes with a sticky back. Just peel off the paper! Ta Da!
The circle stamp with the lines was made with a craft store "marshmallow." We just made narrow slits to create the lines.
Here are some more Houston treasures. Two rolls of hand dyed fabrics -- one in warms and one in cools. I could hear Gerrie's voice in my head telling me to try new color ways. That's why I bought the bright yellow, orange and red.
I found hand dyed cheese cloth to match. And a delicious selection of silk stuff!
And one more funny picture of Claire and Benjamin. This was a post-Halloween project: Candy Sorting!
Some of these pieces have since been used to decorate gingerbread houses!
