I've been enjoying tutorials posted by various mixed media artists the past few days. I plan on making several of the projects and this is the first one. I happened to have everything I needed to do it! My spoon reads "Such is the nature of maternal understanding." Having a pre-teen daughter I need LOTS of maternal understanding. :)

The tutorial is by Kelli Nina Perkins. The video tutorial can be found here.  (Click on the "here")

If you have not checked out her book Stitch Alchemy, you should! I'll post a piece I did with guidance from her book. The instructions in it are just as wonderful as the instructions in her spoon tutorial.

Thanks Kelli!

I want to make sure that as much as possible that everyone else in the group is aware of when you post something for our group, The Artistic Mother's Art Group, so that you will receive visits. We now have 99 participants. That is so great! Because we are so large, it is not possible to visit each and every post that every member puts up; so when you post something related to The Artistic Mother's Art group, I would suggest that you start your title off with "Artistic Mother" to maximize your chances of others from the group paying you a visit. I look at the blog roll for our group every day; and when I see those words, I automatically know that this is a post that I don't want to miss. Please continue to check the blog roll on my blog for Artistic Mother Group related posts on a regular basis so that we can continue to encourage one another in our efforts to do a little something creative each day. Only five show at a time. Just click "Show All" to see all of the blogs. Also, keep in mind that if you are leaving encouraging comments, that will ensure that you will receive some back yourself.

Another thing you can do to help you remember to check my blog often to see if I have posted or check the blog roll to see if others have posted is you can put my blog on your blog roll and/or in your reader so you'll easily see when I've posted and you don't have to try to remember on your own.
