Mixed Media Quilted Name Tag - USTREAM

I decided that I was going to go to the CHA (Craft and Hobby trade show) next weekend SO....   I thought my USTREAM broadcast would be the perfect opportunity to create a name badge to wear at the show (and yes, it's a business card holder too with a pocket in the back *BIG smile*)  I'm soooo happy I created it!  It was so much fun!  Thanks to everyone who watched the stream live.  LOVE how it turned out.  Completely me!

Those who watched got a first hand glimpse at my trial and error style *wink*
I tried painting the house below (one of my "lovely houses" stamps with myStamp BOX) with some Silks from Luminarte on an unprimed piece of canvas.   Love the Silks but had to play with water saturation while painting on this substrate.  It's  ALL good!   LOVE the house I finished with.   So dimensional and yes, luminescent *smile*

Pardon my stitching, *smile* but I did get out the embroidery floss for this project.... and some FELT too!!  Love my little heart embellie!

and then... once it was all sewn together I added a beaded chain to finish it off.  Those orange flower beads were beads I created a while ago using an Ikea ice cube tray and some UTEE.  Jen and I thought they were perfect for this.  Hope you think so too! 

Can't wait to show this off at the show!!  If you are going - I'll see you there.  Be sure to say HI!!  

Missed the Live Stream?   Here is the recorded video of the evenings "happenings"  ENJOY!
**Wanna skip past the "fussing" around with and get right to the project?   Start viewing at 28:30**

Hope you're having a creative day!
