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… thousand to go.
Enjoy the ‘getting there!’
