My mom has always told me I’m the most creative person she knows. The secret I keep is that all of my ideas are really just alterations from someone else’s brilliance.But, then maybe that’s how we all work … benefiting from each other’s creativity …
- Promise Tangeman is a crazy, talented photographer and designer who posted this incredible idea of how to make art with scraps of fabric.
- She wrote out specific directions here so I won’t repeat what she’s already done. I just wanted to share the love for any of you who don’t follow her blog.
- It made for the perfect Saturday-afternoon-snowed-in craft to do! I had to make a few alterations since I was stuck indoors, but I made it work.
I had an old, glassless frame I picked up from an antique store for only $2. It has been sitting in our office waiting to be used. With fabric pieces I have loads of, I tore strips to use. The green pattern is from bedding I made, the blue fabric from a shirt I loved that ripped when I walked past an old rusty nail.I used foam board which I cut with an Exacto knife. I then easily secured the fabric swatches with package tape.
To add a bit of flair I decided I’d use it to post random photos we get that usually get stuck to the fridge.
And, then I hung it in our hallway heading up to our bedroom. Wahlah! So easy and so much fun!
I’d love to hear your thoughts and also to see any art you make with fabric. The options are endless!
