I made my first fabric canvas. Fabric+gesso= easy!

Then stitched some off cuts to make new paper
This is really fun!

Then back to the trusty Cricut.

I think the background is  a bit busy for the cutout..

and it needs a strong contrasting background.

Maybe this bird looks better on the blue?

  4. Clever! I think it looks beautiful on the blue background. x

  5. Snap...I made some canvas as well. Piece of sheeting and some primer slapped on and that's as far as I've got! Your little bird looks nice. I like it both non the contrast fabric and the blue which is a very pretty shade.

  6. The birds look stunning, and it looks like you had a lot of fun creating the paper in the first place.

  7. That looks like a messy process but fascinating. What is the machine? will be good to see the finished thing - I like the yellow background for the bird!

    1. Hi the machine is a Cricut and basically is an computer cutter. Best thing I ever bought and have found SO many fun things to do with it over the years. Have settled for the yellow background too!


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear from you :-)
