Whenever I get into a creative "funk" I drag out my boxes of "stuff" (mistakes of art gone "wrong!" and I've had a lot of those lately..) and make art squares. This helps me clear my brain and experiment on a smaller scale. These are so enjoyable to make and they can be used in tons of other projects.
Most of these are made by simply felting down fibers, yarn, silk, angelina fibers, etc. with my embellisher, on a base of peltex or felt, or wool. and then layering with organza, or other "meltable" textiles, heating it up to melting point (for interesting texture) and then embellishing with charms, sequin, beads, Swavrovski crystal, felt, etc.
People come up with tons of uses for these little squares which range from 1 inch (inchie) to 2 inches for the larger ones. They can be sewn or pinned onto jackets, purses, journal covers, made into charms by putting a grommet in the corner, ephemera for scrapbooking, journal pages, etc.
I've got some studying to do today for a professional licensing class, then a little work, a few chores, and hopefully some stitching time. Whatever your day brings your way - grab hold of it and get the MOST out of it you can!
