Let the Words do the Talking at Frilly and Funkie

Hi everyone and welcome! It's the second week of our latest challenge over at Frilly and Funkie, and our host Sue Carrington has this to say; "I love to include meaningful sayings on my projects, sayings that speak to me and inspire me to do the things I do. What I would love to see on your projects for this challenge are the words and sayings that mean a lot to you and inspire you."

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And there are Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team, because choosing just one winner is so hard!

Here's my canvas for this challenge, inspired by the display of fabric swatches on clipboards that adorned Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements stand at the recent Quilt Market. Read all about it HERE (and you'll see the wall I mean in the first photo!)


The whole theme for this canvas is that word LIFE, spelt out in Letterpress Blocks. The various swatches help document memories and the every day objects that make up our lives; pressed shirts, a romantic trip, long time friends, a great night out, cutlery, and a fun day skating - a real life quilt.



The base of the canvas was covered in a sheet of Dapper paper and stencilled with some Texture Paste through the Mini Latticework Layering Stencil. I used some of the Eclectics Elements fabric and stamped on some of the Textile Surfaces before stitching them to wadding and mounting on small kraft tags. The Hinge Clips were made for this piece too it seems!



Just one word can conjure up a whole picture. Several can hold a special meaning. So which words will be your creative spark? Hop on over to Frilly and Funkie to see the ones used by my talented team mates and then it's over to you.
Can't wait to see what you come up with! Until then take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx

  2. Love your tag canvas Jenny, each little tag holds its own moment in time. You have a lovely collection of elements on the tags and the red machine stitching and little touches of denim brings them all together beautifully with the red texture paste and the blue script letters. A clever use of the 3 for and E love this piece. Mo x
