Here at IHAN sometimes we need to dig deep to find our creativity.....which may just require a change of hats. Ya just never know where or when your inspiration will hit....for example......
Perhaps you'll find it while on Safari.
If you are anything like me...it comes from messes....lots and lots of messes as I pull out every piece of fabric I own...then I get my friends to bring theirs over too...sometimes I have to dig deep to find my creative stride.
And then again, others find may require just another creative shift.....Petals
When Petals don't do it....perhaps ya just need to light a fire under your butt.....or
Get a little Crazy.....(wild music plays in the background...Jean said she didn't peg me for Bobby Brown or Will Smith....how wrong she was).
Sometimes it takes a little Funk to find your stride :)
Then there's always the Super Fly Cheetah that you channel to get your mojo workin'
And just when I thought I was at the end of my creative jag....I phoned Mrs. Rosemary and asked her to bring her wild self over ....and make sure she has some "screamin" batiks in tow :)
Waldo's conundrum was wanting a spider web on a collage she is doing and she didn't know how to do it. You know what I said....."MISTYFUSE GIRLFRIEND".....I just posted on how to make thread art with Mistyfuse and once again....Mistyfuse to the rescue. I got her a big piece of foam and she put some pins in it and started winding a spider web....
Then I sprayed it with some starch....and dried it with an embossing gun. (Waldo didn't know embossing guns are hot, hot, hot and she burned the first one...so we did another one...just use a hair dryer if you do this).
And then Waldo had a spider web'ish embellishment for her project. But wait....we need to make it stay on the piece....so you know what I did...you guessed it. I put some Mistyfuse on top and and pressed it very well (this time I left out the photo of me pressing....so sorry but we were having fun and I wasn't being methodical...just horsing around).
Believe it or not....we pressed it in place and I didn't even take a photo....guess we were having too much fun.
The moral of the story is....when you get stuck on a project....change hats...play wild music....and invite other consenting adults to get crazy with ya!
Smiles and giggles,
