I fell in love with painting on fabric when first tried it on fabric patches three years ago. I later used those patches to sew my Magic Mixed Media Bag, a bag I still use almost every day. Recently I got a compliment about it at a Knitting Cafť event. Only those who embrace creativity mention it, and I think that is interesting.
This piece of fabric is measured to fit one of my handmade journals once it’s finished, but it also serves as a reminder how much I love doing this! I love painting with acrylic paint on sturdy fabric. I need to experiment and play with it a lot more. And I mean a lot!
It’s easy to forget how much you love doing some things when you don’t have the time to focus on them, don’t you agree? I just bought a new bike this weekend, and biking makes me happy too. How could I forget?
I will try to make a list of all the things that makes me happy for summer activities. It will remind me to do a lot of different things when I have free time. To alternate is good. Bike some, snap a photo, paint some, sew some, take walks and make time for talking to my friends & family. It’s the balance between these and other activities that makes my days good.
