Shabby Pumpkin

Dear All,
Here is something new than regular cards and tags. I created this burlap pumpkin for my Youtube Series, " Running Threads " ( YT-whatamemories ) where I kind of showing tutorial how I create things. Hope you will visit :-)







I have used Burlap.
Cut 7 pieces in leaf shapes, they are 10" long and 3" wide in the middle.
Then all 7 petals stitched like one petal to other and inserted fiber stuffing in there.
Than again hand stitched each joint stitch from outside with burlap thread to create the segment effect.
Cut the leaf shape and one square shape burlap. I rolled square shape and made a stitch to close and made a stem. Stem and leaf stitched on the open part where all the petals came together. So now this pumpkin is closed on top and then decorated with beautiful WOC flowers which are from www.craftycity.com.

Hope you got it ;-)

Thanks for stopping by!!

This is me..

Dear all,
I am writing about me since Dear Rhonda from Australia, whose blog is http://wheeliecraftydesigns.blogspot.com/, who asked me to be a part of this unique blog hop.Rhonda is awesome artist and one of my dearest friends. Please visit her blog, I am sure you will not disappoint.
Thanks so much Rhonda for thinking of me and gave me a chance to talk a little bit about me :-) Well I am not that talkative person so don't be scared....LOL

Not sure where to start but these below questions helps to say something....
So here you go..


1. What am I working currently working on?

Well, I am working on my Running Threads Card making series on YouTube and trying to publish on time every Sunday on my channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/WhataMemories

Also being a DT on Die-Versions Dies, trying to finish their projects too. 

                         2. How does my work differt from others of its genre?
Humm....I will never say my work is out of this world. I learned everything from this creative world and whatever good I am seeing in many wonderful artists, I am trying learn that. Each person has their own creativity and even though you wanted to make exact copy of someone's work...there should be some difference. But I am a Mixed Media Artist and mostly I am trying to make my project inspired by nature. Recently I visited Canada and I was so in love with historical buildings there so I created this canvas just remembering things which I had seen. Hope you will like it.


3. Why do I create what I do?

I am totally belong to this creative world. Everyday I create something...either cards or some paintings or Mixed Media projects or Altered projects....
I am doing this because God gifted me this creativity to use in this life so I am using it as much as possible and I am enjoying each part of it..never know in my next life what I am going to be...LOL




4. How do I become inspired or stay inspired? 

Just because of surrounded by creative people...loving, caring and very supportive hubby and happy kids....they all let me do what I am doing and encouraging me.


5. How long does it take to create a project?

I think..I always feel like, my project never been completed.....I wanted to add-on all the time. I am just keep going without watching a clock since I am not counting my time for my art or crafts work. I am keep working on projects till I will get satisfied at some point.


6. What are my favorite things I love to create with at the moment?

I am working with verity of supplies...and I love all of them. I am totally into Dies and Flowers!!

7.What is my signature style? 

Mixed Media...but not the traditional...this is not exact "Style".style...you know...it is just a thing I always use in my any project.


  

So this is me....Hope you are still here..:-)
Thanks again Rhonda!!
But I am very thankful for your time and comment!! If you like my work please follow my blog and be my subbie on Youtube ~

Love,
