Cut It Up Cut It Out + Liquid Pearls

MarveLes Art Studios Blogs, Mixing It Up 9 Comments

Sunday clean up round robin continued ~ the whole piece of fabric; cut in half.  Upper portion is thermofax screening; bottom is stamped, marked up with painting ‘jabs’ as I call it (the white skinny marks) from my cheapo black foamy brush.  I’ve also lightly traced a small, cross shape onto this fabric.

I then free motioned some random quilting lines, words, twirly’s and etc.  Finished with a zig zag stitch.  These crosses are also backed with a cardstock-scrapbooking-type of paper, to add stiffness and keep them from bending, much like the postcards I’ve made.

And I decided this was a good time to try another little art supply I’ve had on hand, but haven’t used — yet!  A little dab of “Liquid Pearls” I bought in a packet of three, from Michaels.  I used the gold color, adding some random dots… and also applied as an edging, too.  This product is very easy to use. Dries quickly.  A fun little embellishment. 

These little crosses turned out ‘just okay’ in my view. I’m not sure what it is I don’t like, exactly.  Maybe it’s the color.  Or the white zig zag stitching. They don’t seem very vibrant, perhaps.  Which may be because I usually embellishments that shine.  Maybe it’s my mood. Or perhaps it’s the photography.  Regardless, they will be fun little remembrances to send to family and friends, easy to tuck into a card for Easter.

One more project down!  

One… thousand to go.

Enjoy the ‘getting there!’

  1. Oh I think they are beautiful! What a sweet thing to include in Easter cards! Yay for one project down! 😉

  2. I'm so impressed – love the free motion stitching and the words are perfect! i think the crosses are beautiful, too, but if you aren't happy with them, maybe some more layers of color? Or embellishments like buttons or some other surface treatment…little beads? (Can you tell I am brainstorming?)

  3. I love the crosses and think that they turned out fabulous!

    And I am with you 1000 more projects to go… 🙂

  4. my first or second time HERE … I so agree with Sparkles … such grace in stitches … there is just NO wrong way!

  5. Their simplicity makes them ever more representative of grace to me. wonderful. xox Corrine

  6. Well, I think they're pretty. They are are softer in color with less embellishing and value change than you usually do so perhaps that's why you're unsure.
