Customising felt with Gelli printing.

 

Felt is a very versatile fabric for crafting with, but it does come in a narrow range of colour options and even less pattern options. Today I’m going to show you a quick and mess free way to customise your felt pieces with stencils and a Gelli Plate. Now, “mess” is a very subjective notion so before you proceed I’ll give you my definition of mess free before we get into the nitty gritty. I do not clean dry paint off the plate, it’s not necessary. I do not clean off my stencils,

Little Snippets of My Maker Adventuring Through the Lockyer Valley

Happy colourful Springtime to all. Things are warming up in my part of the world and new energy is swirling around. Birds are nesting, the cows are calving, and the days are longer. And I have been a busy little bee. As I’ve been filling my days with arts and crafts and handmade I thought of a hundred stories I could have bought to the blog but too often I was caught up in the moment of just being. My muse has kept me busy,

Presentation Inspiration For Small Handmade Gifts

 

Today on the blog I’m sharing with you a very simple idea for adding some pretty appeal to small hand made gifts, for giving or craft stall presentations.

I’m a bit of a challenge hound, and I love sniffing out opportunities to participate in an on-line creative game with other like minded creative people.

Welcome to the first post of my new blog, In All My Glory!

20160914_1342481

I am Theresa and I live on an old farm, in the Lockyer Valley, Queensland, Australia. I am a maker of all sorts of things arty and crafty. Making and crafting has long been a part of who I am, right from when I was a young child. I’ve been blessed with a natural curiosity and ability to be able to pick something up and dissect the making of it. I love trying to figure out the process of how something is created and learning from others how they make what they do.
