I've begun a new video series. Or maybe it is just a new way to capture the various types of videos I post. Or maybe it is just a new intro. I'm still sorting it out.
In any case, I have two new videos up this week - a quilting project video and a shopping video.
The first is a video sharing the beginnings of a quilting project to practice free motion quilting. When completed, I will have a new tablecloth. Spoiler for the follow-up to this video, I've run into a little challenge in finishing so that will be covered in part 2 currently in process.
The 2nd video I have posted is a shopping haul video sharing what I purchased recently from Stampin' Up! and a few art supplies from Blick art Materials. Many of the SU! items are off the clearance rack.
Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more videos.
After I finished the last of 50 of these cards AND put them in the mail, I decided they would make a card making video!
Over the last year, I have been using watercolors more and more to create my cards. This is intentional. My craft storage space is limited. As I am doing more and more sewing and quilting, I need space for those supplies and equipment. Stamps were taking up a lot of the storage space in my craft room and they weren't getting a lot of love in recent years. I tried watercolors with the idea that I could draw in designs and then paint the images with watercolors. This would give me a wider range of images and use far less space.
My idea is working in that I'm using stamps even less and have given away quite a few sets. I am doing things a bit differently in that I'm doing more traditional watercolor painting. As long as it is simple, I can attempt it. I'm not a talented artist. I really can't draw unless I have some serious guidelines. But I have found this to be very fun and rewarding. Watercolor supplies really don't take up much room at all.
I still have a lot of my stamping supplies though. I kept my Distress Inks and I have many mediums such as Ranger's Perfect Pearls. So in this card, I've incorporated stamping supplies and watercolors.
The video shares 3 cards. One is entirely watercolors, another is all stamps and inks and a third is a hybrid with some stamps and some watercolors.
Stay tuned for more videos on my other crafts coming soon.
