Magic Moldable Foam Stamps...

Magic Moldable Foam Stamps

They look like a blue sponge, but they're not!

They can take on most any shape...

Prints on Paper...

The Art Sisters are here!

We have lots of different objects 

to try out today...

The moldable foam stamps are heated up

with a heat tool...

Then the warm stamp is pressed onto buttons...

Print on Paper

Plastic doily pressed into a foam stamp

and stamped on fabric.

This works just as well with a cloth doily.

Yes, botanicals make great foam stamps!

I chose to try out different textures

and print them on fabric:

The cow head is from a hamburger press

Look around your house,

you will be amazed at how many found items

make great moldable foam stamps!

It is like a treasure hunt.

Button Bracelets...

Last winter I sorted my buttons by color...

The first project I made with buttons:

Wine Glass Charms

Second project:

White Button Necklace

Third Project:

Brown Button Necklace

My latest Button FUN:

Button Bracelets

I like waxed cord for the bracelets.

In the evenings, I make a couple of bracelets...

They are starting to pile up...

My far:

Metal buttons off it!

I have worn this one to town several times.

The clear buttons are beautiful to work with.

Earth tones work nicely together.

These bracelets have been given away to

my quilting pals, friends, family and neighbors...

But, I can't stop making them!

We had a new calf early this morning:

The new black calf and her mama are in the

center of the photo.

They are flanked on each side by the

Shorthorn Bulls.

More......Jello Printing

After herding the yearling cattle

across the river this morning...

I headed straight for the Thread Shed

for an afternoon of jello/gelli printing...

I am printing on paper today

with Open Acrylics by Golden...

My objective is.....lots of layers

I have never printed with Open Acrylics

on fabric...

That's definitely on my to-do-list...

After a couple of hours...

the prints are piling up!

Me loves me some jello printing in the afternoon 

Down at the Barn Lot:

The Foxglove are in full bloom...

I just adore these wild flowers...

That is some pink...

Also down at the barn lot:

A few of the calves are out behind the barn.

The calves range in age from 4 months to newborn.

There's one in every bunch!
