Upcycled Coiled Basket Galore


After a long Summer of 'hard' working, here we are with at least one post dedicated to my latest obsession: coiling basket, made mainly of upcycled materials, such plastic bags, old bed linens and lots of fabric strips (I started with leftovers and then I finally started putting a dent on my large collection of any kind of fabric I had in my stash for years). Yesterday I just finished my first ever coiled vessel. Why on earth I thought it would be simpler and quicker than the flat large ones... :-D:

Here's a quick recap of the process:

And then a squared very large basket (40 cm) made with a sort of pattern and limited palette:

And the very first baskets made in July, how wonky is the small basket? But it is ok...

Monthly stencil: It's all in your Hands

Welcome August and the 8th monthly stencil of this year: 'It's in Your Hands'. I liked so much this design that I decided to make two stencils, same design but with one hand larger, and with a different text, suitable especially for Art Journaling. Let's dive into some samples:
A couple of cards with a grunge, gel printed background:
Two large cards made with Distress Oxide:
Here's I used the second stencil 'Hold my Hand':
And a black, large  tag:
