Altered art is always fun, especially when it's your own art you're altering. I get a real creative buzz when incorporating my two favorite crafts in some way. I do have a sewing machine, but I prefer to completely hand-stitch all my pieces. Hand-stitching gives it a more one of a kind feel and it never ceases to relax me when doing it. I love it!
I have so much fun adding embellishments. Buttons, beads, sequins, ribbons, flower appliques, lace, ... Oh my!
I've only been stitching for a couple of years now. There are still so many embroidery techniques & fabric ideas that I have to try. The trouble with that is the overload of ideas for stitching & painting. Where does all the time go?
