Our Creative Corner - Sew and Sew

Over at Our Creative Corner, they have an awesome challenge this month ...
Sew and Sew 
 Fabrics, wool, threads, lace - this months challenge is all about texture, layers and loveliness!

What scraps have you got hidden away? Any snippets of favourite clothes you can't bare to part with?

Anything sewing related can be used in your piece. You could use hand stitching or get out the sewing machine and don't worry if you are not a fan of sewing - why not try drawing in some fake stitches?  

Don't forget to get out your sewing themed stamps and dies.
Have fun and create something!
So... I dusted off the old machine and made a little card!
I first put down a layer of tissue paper, painted over it, added splatters...
then I sewed some lace and canvas down, machine stitched around the edges, added a photo and a sentiment.. and voila! The extent of my sewing!!
Thanks for taking a peek!


  1. Helen I love your card! The stitching finishes off your lovely background, great colours for the splatters. Thank you for joining my challenge at Our Creative Corner. Jan x
