So… after I actually stuck to and completed my 2012 new years goal of making a quilt, I knew that I wanted to have another crafty goal this year. Having a goal to do something new each month is really fulfilling. I loved being challenged!
For 2013, my goal is to explore more into Mixed Medias. Now this isn’t a tough one for me. I already paint and sew on my layouts. I have been doing 3D paintings and sculptures since I was a teenager.
But these days, I rarely go out of my comfort zone. I have had these big tubes of acrylic paint for ages sitting in a box for ages now. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present I think 3 years ago now. And then there ist this tub of gesso. This molding paste bottle. I keep buying stuff that I want to use, but in the end I always end up doing the same thing over and over again.
I think its time to stop shopping and starte crafting!
So lets see what I made for January shall we?
Its a set of three simple bookmarks. This one is a simple project. I didnt want it to be too overwhelming. If you are a beginner hopefully this will whet your appetite for more
You can read more about how these came together , with step by step photograph instructions here at the Fiskars website.
I can’t believe that January is almost over! Everywhere you see there is talk of Valentines day now…
Did any of you make any crafting resolutions this year? Do share!
