have a bright and happy day

I made this card for Less Is More's Clean and Simple Sewing challenge...

I had mixed paint left over from my scrapbook page and just couldn't bear to throw it away so I flicked it on some offcuts.  I then cut this into strips and (I can't decide what word to use here... stabbed sounds a bit too violent and perforated doesn't seem right...) 'made holes in it' with this thing...

Apparently it's something to do with onion cutting but I see it as a painting tool!!

Then continuing my neon obsession stitched the strips on to the card with neon thread.

Clean, simple and happy.

I've also been working on a neon Christmas card.  Not quite finished yet, I still have to work on Rudolph's nose, but here is a sneak peek!

Thanks for stopping by...


  1. Hi Laura, I loved what you wrote about the "onion cutter." Great card and I'm looking forward to seeing Rudolph's nose.

  2. I used to have one of those gizmos for holding an onion still whilst you slice it, but I don't know what happened to it. You got another good use for it here!
    Thanks so much

  3. Oooo a teaser about Rudolph's nose! I like the neon stitching on your card - very eye-catching! thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  4. Love how you used your scraps! Aren't those sometimes the best? It worked out really well for you here.

  5. Lol! Another who uses kitchen equipment in her studio! I'm afraid I'm gradually emptying the kitchen drawers of gadgets which are all finding their way upstairs into my ARTHaven.

    What a fun project! Love the paint flicks.

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog - glad you like my latest project! Though I say it myself I'm extremely pleased with it, and at the moment feeling sad I've got to part with it - but can't wait to see the recipient's face when she opens it.
