It's funny how the creative process is for me, and I'm guessing for a lot of others. I totally had something in mind for my project...years ago my son was Elvis for Halloween...absolutely hilarious...he walked around with his portable karaoke machine...his outfit was made by a friend of mine..white sweats...jeweled up...flared pant legs...popped up collar..oy, so cute. Anywho's, so one year for Christmas I bought him a cheesy framed Elvis...it now sits in the garage...its a staple at my never ending garage sales but nobody wants to take him home:( I was going to alter that into my Inspiration Board project but then something else popped in my mind:
One year my friend gave me a bunch of hers because I had mentioned I was looking for some and well, she's crafty too in the sense with fabric etc so she had tons of the hoops in her stash.
Remember my sneak peek from Monday?
This is the finished project...well actually it isn't 'finished'...
That is my 2012 word.
The embroidery hoop is 10.5 inches in diameter so it's pretty big...it's meant for me to use straight pins to keep those special trinkets/memories about 2012 that will motivate me to thrive through the year and that have helped me to grow during the year.
The blooms are made by my bloggie friend Sherry....she does lovely work eh? The fabric that everything is nestled on is vintage....I picked up a pretty large piece of it from a Japanese rummage sale that I use to go to on an annual basis...sadly they don't have them anymore...rummage sales are a great way to pick up recycled items...someones trash is another person's treasure.
I look forward to seeing YOUR inspiration board!!!
