Sewing Circles!!!


Over at Art Journey challenge blog, Anneke has chosen this months theme of 'stitches'.  Now I have to say that this piece was very, very inspired by the DT tag that Sija made.  I just loved the idea of making messy grungy circle shapes with my sewing machine, (I say circles very loosely!!) and what more fitting stamps to put it with than the Grunge set.  I did the stitches in black and decided to keep with the black and white theme by stamping in black soot distress ink.  I mounted the finished piece onto black card.

That looks great Sam. free motion stitching is not easy is it? even when you're not trying to make the shape look symmetrical!

Love your free motion stitching! Beaufiful b & w card! Thanks for taking part in our challenge!

Love it Sam. It could also fit with The Artistic Stamper Creative Design Team challenge this month which is circles!! Just a thought so even more people could get to see your artistic flair at work. Hugs, Buttons x

If you can't handle a sewing machine than you can just say so :-) That's nothing to be ashamed off LOL
To be honest... I'm a bit jealous.. I find it difficult to loosing up and I think it is more of an artwork if you can.
Congrats on this great piece and good luck in the AJ challenge.
Hugs,
Marianne

Very interesting card. The sewing is just amazing--I can't even sew in a straight line on card.

What I like best is the witty title to the post--brilliant !

Love Chrissie xx
