I've just finished a magazine article for Create & Decorate Magazine. It will be published in their Jan/Feb 2014 issue. I know this sounds like forever away! But, in the magazine business, it takes about 6 months for our designs to be printed/published.
So, as a designer, it seems strange for me to be creating Christmas designs in the summer, or Summer designs during Christmas. I never know which direction I'm going. (it is always a fun one.)
I wanted to show you some sneak peeks of the materials and products I used for the project, to get you excited to buy the magazine!
|I used this "Get-It-Straight" Laser Square ruler by Kelly Craft, to help me position |
the rubber stamps on my raw silk fabric.
It works GREAT!
|Here is what the rubber stamp package looks like, above. Unity Stamps.|
|Here are the Ann Butler Unity "Faux Quilt" rubber stamps I used, above! Love them!|
|Here are the fabric inks I used made by Clearsnap® Color Box, called "Crafter's Ink" And they are awesome.|
When you heat set them, they become permanent! I even tea dyed the fabric and it didn't smudge the ink!
|I used most of these cute little buttons by Buttons Galore & More!|
|AND, here is the sneak peak of the project I made for the magazine. Can't show you any more, when it comes out, I'll add an additional post to this one! Promise! Check out the Create & Decorate website. You'll love it!|
