Part 2 of Gather your Sew-plies

It is tutorial time again and this time I present the Thimble Cinch Add-on Pattern. This pattern is made in response to and improvement upon, the Gather your Sew-plies!! Pattern. There will be a few more printable patterns in this series. So far I still have yet to complete a Scissor Tuck Pocket Patterm and I would like to do one called, ‘Mods:’ where I discuss the small modifications, embellishments and changes that I have made.

embellish freely.

But for today, I offer you this downloadable pdf, Thimble Cinch pouch pattern, woot!

If you make your own version of this, I would love to see it and will create a Flickr group to manage your photos. Say, Yes! Start this weekend! Start now. 

If you would like a copy of each downloadable pattern to be delivered to your email box, please sign up for The Clever Guild’s newsletter. I won’t barrage you with email, but I will be sending out at least 4 to 6 emails a year with content like this free downloadable pattern, video samples and information pertaining to upcoming workshops and more.

And, it is also Flash Card Friday

On page 40 of Dreaming from the Journal Page, liquid Frisket is discussed and demonstrated.

Liquid frisket is a rubbery, liquid substance used as a painterly resist on watercolor paper in combination with either watercolor or gouache. The type of paper you can use it on is limited, on watercolor paper, no problem. But it does not work well on bristol board and I would not suggest you use it in a Moleskine Sketchbook, as it has the tendency to delaminate that type of paper. Always experiment to see what works best for you and your supplies!

I am using this journal spread to demonstrate techniques for my up coming Dream Journals class (this class will available for sign up within the month) through The Clever Guild. The image of Arrow, upper left corner of the page, used liquid frisket. It is fun to see the page like this as it has really grown and changed since I took this photo.

And please, if you are interested, sign up for Stencil Magic, where i demonstrate the use of single and multicolored stencils, with samples on (mostly) fabric, though I also demonstrate using stencils in mixed media painting and your artist’s journal. I really hope to see you there!

    Thank you so much Melanie !! Last night I was looking up thimble pipkins. Have you heard of those or seen them? So cute. Now I have to figure out how to make one :))

  2. Thanks for this post. It is so ironic. I was watching “Simply painting through Europe” on the Create channel this morningand the narrator discussed liquid frisquet. This will also have to added to my list of things to try. Hmmm my list is getting pretty long.

    My thimble thanks you. It was my Great Grandmother’s and it likes to go for walk abouts, sometimes, feline aided. ;) I love the Arrow page. It would make a wonderful poster. Wishing you a beautiful weekend doing what makes your heart sing. xoxo
