A new Monday means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week it's all about Patchwork! In the traditional way with the sewing machine and for example with the beautiful new fabrics from Tim Holtz or maybe the faux way to make stitches with a pen, or perhaps with the We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy or Sew Stampers.
What inspired me was this video by Dyan Reaveley. In this video Dyan shows a doodling patchwork technique. Although I immediately wanted to give it a try, it was the challenge. I absolutely can't draw or even doodle. So I sat down late in the evening to give it a try and when I started I just couldn't stop! It's really fun to do. It's a little addictive...
I have chosen not to color it in the patterns, but to use it as a subtle background. So I gave it a coat of Gesso to fade it more into the background.
The exclusive stencils for Simon Says Stamp are really stunning, like the Ring Cluster and Moroccan. The Ring Cluster I used black colored Modeling Paste with. Immediately a very dramatic effect. Oh yeah!
I got the washers and the mesh at the local hardware store. Always fun to browse there for some random things to use for my projects.
And to give it a bright color I used the Moroccan stencil with the Neon Pink Dauber!
