Heart and Soul...

 Hello Creatives 

You would certainly smile if you saw the process that went into 
creating this background. Created over weeks adding collage scraps, 
washi, fabric and lace, stencil scrapes and a wee bit of stitchery.

Limited messy time takes me back to crafting in my kitchen in 
between meal prep, cooking and excessive washing of hands 😊

Life is what it is but I am thankful..

Stamped, embossed and water coloured focal heart..

Shedding light on my chosen words.. born and bred in 
England and very much where my heart and soul lies..

Creative Artiste ~ #101 Anything Mixed Media Goes

Hello Creative Friends 

Welcome to Creative Artiste first 
mixed media challenge of 2024. 

My DT project this February started with a stamped 
Visible Image quote on a coffee stained linen scrap..

*When you feel like quitting think about why you started*

Stitched over and attached to a fabric panel I've glued, sewn 
and stained recycled materials, papers and embellishments, lost in 
the art of slow stitch and collage with Winter very much in mind.

The pincushion I made from a fabric gift bag, painted and layered 
with lacy scraps, ribbon and repurposed buttons. It holds lovely 
decorative pins gifted to me by a dear friend.

on the reverse side it's rich red velvet, creamy lace and pearls 
and more of those lovely decorative pins thanks to Anne x

all adding warmth and a touch of romance 😊 
This is the first page in my 2024 mixed media journal.

There's lots more to see from the Creative Artiste Design Team 
we look forward to seeing your February Mixed Media makes @

Stay safe & Creative 
Tracey xx
