Felt Decorations Book
DIY, Illustration & Design
I'm excited to announce that I wrote my first book! Titled, Felt Decorations: 15 eye-popping projects to create, published by Arcturus Publishing and due to be released in January 2018!
My grandma first taught me how to sew when I was a young girl. Since then embroidery has been one of my favorite craft mediums, so I jumped at the chance to create a book on the subject. I designed and created patterns for 15 original felt projects. I also wrote and illustrated the project instructions and did all the photography. This project was a big dream come true!
Illustration & Design
I recently worked with organic and NON GMO produce company, HIPPIE ORGANICS™ to create a custom logo, hand lettered font, original watercolor artwork, and label designs for their line of fresh, organic produce.
My latest artwork is inspired by the powerful healing herb, cannabis (aka. weed, pot, marijuana, etc.)
I created my first cannabis inspired art piece for the 2017 High Art competition hosted by Juxtapoz Magazine and Natural Cannabis Co. Since then I have continued to make art inspired by the healing properties and benefits of specific strains like Blue Dream and Mango Kush.
Heart Embroidery Sampler
Learn the basics of embroidery and make a cute heart sampler with my free pattern and tutorial! I created easy to follow, step-by-step instructions and included video links to learn 7 beginner embroidery stitches. The heart sampler pattern is available for free download on Adventures In Making.
What is an embroidery sampler?
An embroidery sampler is created as a demonstration or test of skill in needlework. It’s the perfect way to practice different kinds of stitches and make something pretty at the same time.
