On Fabric atc's one to one we have started something once a month where you make a card with a certain art technique...We have done colored pencils and a water theme so far...It really has challenged me in a new direction. I know free motion sewing just took practice and more practice ..at first I was horrible, and then I got better. I am hoping it is the same with drawing and painting..Leaping lizards was done with watercolors and ink a fabric back and the edge is stitched...city, cat, moon is done the same way. Eventually, I am hoping to put some things I make on ebay to keep my craft supply costs down...Right now, I am using things I have and that has sparked some creativity too. Plus there is the accomplishment of making something from nothing. It's a great feeling!
