November Hopping with Craft Hoarders Anonymous

                                    Welcome everyone to another hop with the ladies of 
                                           Craft Hoarders Anonymous.
       Every month on the 5th we share ideas on how to use up your stash and get creating again.

You should be coming to me from Marissa's blog
After head on back to Gloria's blog to see the full. line up of projects or
scroll on down to the bottom where I have it listed for you.

Here is my project for the month.
I did four 8x8" textile collages using a mix of fabrics, papers
and scrapbook embellishments from my stash.

I added batting and backing to turn these collages into mini quilts,
which can be added to a fabric journal or hung on a wall.
Each one took only a few hours to complete.
They are a great way to use up lots of bits and pieces you have lying around.
This is my first collage.
I incorporated some metal and paper embellishments with my fabric flowers.
The background is stamped with a script stamp and StazOn ink.
The flowers were outlined with black glitter glue for a little sparkle.

Machine stitching added a little bit of texture.

The next collage started on a piece of Damask fabric.
Scraps of sewing pattern paper and fabric collaged on over.
The lace was cut from an old handkerchief.
Distress ink was rubbed over it and dried.

Kaiser craft flowers were added.
The photo is a collage image by Tim Holtz.
Rub ons added to a paper tag.

A paper butterfly diet was added in
the upper corner.

The red and black piece started from sewing scraps
of the same color families randomly onto a base.
Metal embellishments were mixed with paper ones. 
A fabric softener sheet was painted, cut into strips & sewn on.

Metal flowers and leaves were added over a dry cleaning tag,
and a paper tag.
Rub Ons added some words.

The fabric softener sheet which was painted & cut.
Woven then attached to the collage with machine stitching.

On the last collage scraps of vintage plaids and stripes
were collaged onto a base.
Mixing in lace, sheet music, lots of scrap embellishments and 
modeling paste.

A resin piece, paper tickets, Pink Paislee banner 
all added.
The image is another one from Tim Holtz.
Modeling paste added through sequin waste and colored with ink.

A piece of thin fabric was laid over the whole thing.
I then went through with my heat gun and melted it in spots.
Glimmer mist flicked on as a final addition.

These were so fun to make.
Pull out all sorts of items and collage away.

Make sure to visit the blogs before and see what others have created for your inspiration this month.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
