tutorial « Gauche Alchemy

Scraps, here, with a fantastic technique two-fer from Alchemist Jo! Jo: One of my favorite backgrounds is a blended paper background. I learned the basic technique from Mary Green when I took her online classes–”Your Vintage Gluebook” and “Collage Coterie”–and have further developed it to suit my style. I’ve prepared two 4″x6″ postcards to show two variations on the theme. Firstly, I covered both postcards with pieces of book pages, torn and randomly stuck to the postcards with a gluestick.

Back to School Boutique Backpack. I've been shopping for a backpack for my daughter for school (yes she is only going to pre-school but she needs a cute backpack, right?).

Back to School Boutique Backpack

I saw some backpacks at boutiques and got the idea for the one you see below. It cost me about $25 to make. I'm so excited how it turned out! Here is a picture of some of the supplies you will need- a flat front backpack (a pocket one will be harder), furry fabric, batting, E600 glue, embellishments such as rhinestones (I got a "G" for my daughter's initial), needle and thread, clothes pins, and ribbon or whatever else you want to put on the front. Don't laugh at my backpack choice, it was the only one I could find that was flat-front! This is the batting I used from Jo Ann's fabric store. Tutorial - Make Your Own Flowers - part 1.

The packages are always weird sizes and never seem to fit in a paper bag, so I came up this handy dandy post office bag.
