I've been enjoying some Christmas themed art time lately.
I am taking Ruth Rae's Stitched Mixed Media Art online class.
I have admired her for ages now and
I knew she would inspire me to loosen up.
I am applying Ruth's techniques to some paper/lace collage tags,
with a simple wire hanger.
a little bit of paper, some lace, vintage textiles....
and some sewing....
They look nothing like what Ruth was making...lol!
She is totally amazing.
But I did feel like I was breaking some new personal ground.
I can not remember where I found this image.
I usually mark each image I download in the file name,
but alas, this one I did not.
They are kinda wonky,
but I like the layers this way...
just simply laid and sewn.
The strings are left hanging down.
I have a few baskets of small pieces of vintage textiles,
lace, ribbon, and such. It is fun to rummage through them,
searching for just the right piece to put on next.
All in all a very fun project!
I am now working on some vintage postcard angel tags.
Are you working on something festive too?
What is going on in your part of the world?
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit : )
