Hi my name is Michelle Van Etten. I am self diagnosed Scrapaholic Mixed Media Artist. I travel the world inspiring other to come to the darkside and release their inner artist. Here I will share a little piece of my chaotic world. Thank you for stopping by Have a Scrappy Day
Dimensional Roses inspired by Tim Holtz 12 days of Christmas tags.
I have been fascinated by the beauty of these roses, but puzzled by how I could make them work for fashion. Fabric will not retain the stiffness once washed unless sealed. So my quest began before I ever started scrapbooking I designed ceiling fans. Before I stopped I had created over 2,000 fans. I always sealed the blades with clear coat they could withstand anything that way. I wanted the roses to retain their shape. My experiment first I have the wrong kind of webbing. I was unable to go to the store to buy the right kind so time to improvise. I am always so excited when my experiments work. I was able to seal the fabric shape it and mold my flowers and they are waterproof. I am so excited and see so many of these beauties in my future.
Spring is in the air and my toes are painted. I am ready for the beach weather and open toe shoes. I have to say I love sandals and I really love to customize my foot wear. So here are my first pair of sassy sandals.
While I am still working on my apron, I did finish a pair of sandals to match. I am leaving town on Monday for Australia and want to have both finished by the time I leave. I will post the pictures when I am done. I promise it will be so worth the weight. It is turning out amazing.
