Wow, time does fly. I've been camping in New Mexico. What an amazing beautiful area. I actually brought a suitcase filled with craft projects. I even decoupaged a walking stick in camp. That's a true craft addict for you! Believe it or not, I actually did craft in camp. It was truly an amazing and fun experience! I can craft anywhere!
Today I wanted to share my artist apron with you. I bought a canvas apron at Michaels. I then decided to spray it with Dylusions spray ink. I put down a doily stencil, alphabet lettering stencils, a banner stencil, and a honeycomb stencil. Then I sprayed the inks on top of it. I used a lot of bright colors, and tried to let them dry between each color. I then stenciled a couple of birds on top of that.
Then I cut out some butterflies out of fabric, and glued them down with fabric glue. This particular apron didn't have any pockets, and when I'm working I really need pockets to help control my crafting messes. I had gotten some cute fabric a long time ago, at Hancock's, and thought it would be adorable on the apron. I was right. I then sewed on the fabric, making pockets for even more organization. As you can see below, it turned out so cute that I don't want to wear it. I don't think the inks I used are washing machine proof, but that didn't matter to me, because I doubt if I will ever wash it. I used Tim Holt's tattered angel die to create a flower on the top of the apron. I put a button in the middle of the flower. It's a messy flower, but that is the charm of it. I hope you all enjoy this cute and easy project. Happy crafting!
