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

Wow, what a beautifully crafted project! I love all the layers of lace and coffee stained fabrics with the buttons and flowers, and the way you handstiched the quote after stamping it takes it to a whole other level of amazing ❤️. Both sides of the heart are so pretty too. Wishing you a happy and creative February! Woof to Freya! Hugs, Jo x

Wow Tracey, this takes my breath away. What a gorgeous piece. I love the stitching and the lace and the buttons. . . you also did an amazing job stitching over the stamped words. The heart makes this romantic piece even more romantic. You've outdid yourself, and I'm guessing that means you found some creative time- I hope at least. Have a wonderful start to February, and I hope you have a lovely month ahead too. hugs-Erika

What a wonderful beginning for your journal, Tracey! Slow stitching is so meditative, isn't it? I just love everything in this project, but mostly the heart--both the front and the back are delightful, and to include gifts from a dear friend makes it even more of a treasure. Hope you have a wonderful year and add lovely memories into your journal pages.

I can just imagine how relaxing this must have been (I feel a slow stitch might be needed here) This is stunning Tracey, fabulous to view and I'm sure its great to hold it too. Thanks so much for sharing at Try It On Tuesday and also inspiring me! Hugs, Chrisx

Fiona said...

Wow Tracey this is beautiful - I'm always in awe of those who can sew as I just can't. I couldn't bear to have covered up those lovely stitched words you did. Gorgeous piece - Fiona, Teamie

Ohhhh these are gorgeous. You are so talented.

Sue said...

Hi Tracey, thank you so much for your visit to me blog, it was lovely to hear from you! Your piece is stunningly beautiful - this must have been a labour of love. I don't know either how you can bear to cover any of it up, but then the layers look so gorgeous I guess you have to lol.
Take care and have a very happy week, (try and grab some time for yourself) Sue xx

Wow! This is so beautiful and romantic Tracey! I love the stitched quote and that gorgeous heart pin cushion. Truly a family heirloom in the making. I'm so glad you are finding time to create and enjoy some time for yourself.
