New Toy, a Doodle & a Magazine photo
While attending the Creative Festival in Toronto, on Friday, I picked up a few new gadgets to try. One item was this Magic Heat tool I purchased at the Jenny Haskins booth. It has multiple uses but I bought it primarily for use in cutting stencils. I tried it yesterday and it works wonderfully. I drew a few leaf shapes onto a piece of Mylar, just traced the lines with the heated tool and there it is ........ my first stencil.
I used dye sticks to stencil the leaves then added a little thread painting to create this postcard.
I picked up a number of items I have been wanting to try. I'll show some of them over the next little while.
I also picked up the summer issue of A Needle Pulling Thread magazine which has photos of 2 of my postcards...............how cool is that?
If you are a regular visitor, you know I like to participate in the Creative Prompt Project. This week's word prompt was/is a tough one, word prompt # 37 is Gracious. I think of graciousness as a quality and could not really think of how to portray that on paper so I cheated ever so slightly and went with this graceful swan.
