I am married to one talented and interesting man! He can make and fix just about anything! He loves boats, building stuff, and extreme power kiting. I have mentioned these unique hobbies of his from time to time and I have been promising to fill you in on his occasional kite sewing sessions. So, here we go!
We have a large studio space. Complete with sewing machine. Do I use it to make fabulously cute clothes for my girls? Of course not! I sew on scrapbook pages. He makes kites. The most recent kite construction is for a class he will be teaching at our local homeschool co-op. Oh, how I love this guy! I just had to scrap this. Let's start out with this coordinations paper embossed with rulers:After some sanding, it's time to do some misting:
A bit more. Oops, I am not thrilled with that big spot there. Oh well, that's what layering is for!
Time for another SMASH page to find it's way onto a LO (thanks Wilna and Shimelle).
Ah, yes - action shot of hubster at work:
Let's play with layers. I've grabbed some Echo Park Boy's Life and trimmed down the SMASH page:
Hmmmm....not feelin' it. That blue of the SMASH page just isn't right. And the coordinations paper is too grungy. Time to regroup...
Back to some more layering:
Yes! Time to stitch and commit:
Now for some embellishments. I would like a "nod" to kites, but nothing too literal. How about some diamonds roughly cut from patterned paper?
But, they need a landing point. Out comes the paint:
A little swoop. I am liking the paint on the photo too - helps pull things together:
Let's stamp! A perfect subject matter to use this cute little sewing spool logo(that has actually never had the pleasure of meeting an ink pad!):
OK, before I get the diamonds on there, I think I might need to do a bit of title work:
There we have it!
A bit of stitching:
I think some twine will look nice layered under the embellishments:
Oh, goody! I found a use for those chipboard stars that didn't work on that other layout!
It's so fun to have a hubby with creative hobbies. He IS so scrappable! Who is the most scrappable person in your life? Anyone with an unusual hobby? I would love to hear about it!
