Today I'm bringing you a LO that I created today from the weekly challenge over on UKS featuring my 'men' who undoubtedly bring me sunshine is a sea of life that can, ocassionally, seem very grey! (Luckily not that often.. I'm a glass half full gal!)
Firstly I had to use this sketch, then I had to add stitching or fabric (I used both) and to use a colour I had a lot of in my wardrobe.. in my case..black.. (not yellow sadly..it makes me look sallow).. finally I had to use polka dots.
So.. firstly I used an entire sheet of yellow PP that I had in my July 'Just in Time' CKCB kit.. and then I added some Authentique papers from a recent purchase of a 6" paper pad..using just the black and polka dot sheets.
I then used a negative of a heart punch out and added yellow polka dot washi tape beneath it, added some fabric strips and some faux stitching around the heart.
I finished off with a flourish of flowers including some sequin flowers... ending up with tipping the entire box of THOUSANDS of sequins all over my craft room floor. I was distraught.. in fact I've walked away from them and will go back to it later when I've worked out the best method of clearing them all up. I figure that using a dustpan and brush will just get them to stick with static to the brush! I can't use my hands as they stick to them too and I can't get them off there either...any ideas??? What a klutz!
Hey ho.. it didn't stop me finally photographing and loading the LO here!
Hope someone has a good idea how to clear up my sequins???
