Poinsettia runner, Sketchclub doodles

It's a bit of a snow day here today, so I've stayed in doing all things domestic-- some wash and homemade bread.

While I'm dreaming about getting into some more spring like artwork such as the sun prints currently on my design wall, I really felt the need to finish cut and stitch my stamped poinsettia fabric into a runner.

The details in the batik fabric are not showing the best above. My camera needed charging and I had to use theIPad. Difficult to get a good picture when I had to back away so far in order to fit it all in the shot.

Was I crazy to have cut it all up?

I've also still been playing with a few of my doodles from the Sketchclub APP.

I have the I Pad and a very old computer which would not run Photoshop. Someday, I'm going to get a new one and learn it, but for now I'm stuck with some very rudimentary tools.

In the one above, I took a doodle, cropped it in Picasso, copied it into a Word document and sized it so I could fit several together on the page.

In the next one, I printed some doodles out, cut them out and pasted them onto the paper

And for this one, I printed a design and actually traced them all onto the paper.

It's all somewhat labor intensive but still fun to do. I think I could make one full page craft foam stamp that would be great to use when Gelli printing.

Mmmm.. The bread looks amazing! The fabric is lovely, and yes, the iPads definitely don't do photos justice all the time!
