Every year after Christmas I always feel creatively burned out. I find myself needing a break. Having had Vintage Whites Markets in January 2015 and 2016 in Loveland, taking a creative break is no longer an option. Creating new items for a market right after a Christmas continues to be a challenge. However, I do.
Although Vintage Whites Market moved venues and is now at the end of March (I will be a vendor) , Old House Vintage Market's first market this year was at Loveland and in mid January.
I have learned all I need is to find the right inspiration and my creative mojo comes back - thank goodness!
This is the result:
A tattered vintage quilt
Hand cut hearts
Aurifil 12 wt Red Thread to stitch around each tattered quilt heart
Vintage valentines, Adobe Photoshop Elements program, Iron on Paper
Transfer Vintage Valentine Iron on Paper images to white cotton fabric
Sew fabric vintage valentines to tattered quilt hearts
Add an eyelet and red and white twine
Result = One of a kind Fabric Vintage Valentines
Also created fabric and felt vintage valentine garlands:
