Kindness and Confetti
Sequin confetti, of course! Hi, I'm here today with a bunch of ATC's. I am taking part in a swap you see... 52 cards themed 'Love, Kindness and Hope' and in return, I get 52 cards from all over the world made by different artists.
I start with a master board - a big piece of watercolour paper that will eventually be cut down to size. I made three sheets with different colours using mainly Shimmerz sprays in different finishes. I added some stencilling with Dazzlerz paste for some texture.
Next, I moved on to the fun bit - filling up 52 little glassine bags with sequin confetti. I won't list all of the sequin mixes I used as there are far too many! You can find them all here!
I printed out the phrase "throw kindness around like confetti" and trimmed them down to small slips of paper. I have all my elements ready now so I set up my sewing machine. I picked a background, a glassine bag of confetti and a sentiment slip and ran them through my sewing machine on a straight stitch.
It was good fun whizzing them all through not having to worry about straight lines!
They've now been parcelled up and posted and the tricky bit begins... I have to wait for them to be swapped and posted back! I'm not very good at waiting!!
Thanks for stopping by!
