Woodware - Mixed Media

This week's challenge at Woodware is "Mixed Media". I started off making a grungy tag with lots of products and techniques then decided that I really didn't like it. And by that time time was running out for starting from scratch. I must admit I am struggling to find any creativity at the moment. The joys of being in my fifties, tired, overweight and going through the menopause!!! So in a bid to perk up my senses I made a lavender bag.
I stamped the image of the poppy field onto fabric and coloured in with alcohol markers. I had intended to embroider the design but just didn't have enough time.

This pretty stamp is an old Stampendous wood mounted stamp called "Scenic Poppy". I stamped onto a fabric canvas with black ink before adding colour.

I trimmed the fabric and frayed the edges. Then I stitched the panel onto a bit of green checked fabric before making up the bag.

Then all that was required was to fill the bag with dried lavender and tie the bag with a ribbon. Smell and relax!!
That's all for this week from me but remember to check out the Woodware blog for lots of great ideas.

  1. Oh Siobhan, I know that feeling well, almost over mine now but it does play merry havoc with your life ! I think everyone goes through those uninspired times and when it happens I go away and do something else. Doesn't take much to get the old juices flowing again....
    I like the idea of the stamp onto the hessian, great stamp, looks really effective :)


  2. I wish I had your lack of creativity as it's fabulous.Just love the stamp onto canvas.Looks amazing.x


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate them.
