painting & vinyl

So this weekend it was kinda rainy here and I decided to try something new! I went to the craft store and bought some canvas for painting and 2 colors of acrylic paint. Saturday was rainy outside and I decided to paint in the garage.

I started out with a color called "pool blue" and then a second color called "carribean" - here's what it started to look like:

Sure the pool blue is the complete background, but I decided to make the caribbean color random on the canvas. I waited overnight to be sure it was completely dry and then headed over to see my cricut! I decided that black would be a great color contrast on this so here's what I did:
Here is a better picture of the completed painting:

You can see the 2 different colors better. I cut the star from the cricut and then I used a star punch to make the little starts in the corner. I punched the black bigger than the blue in order to layer it.

I also did this on my sewing machine case:

Alright so I got my machine all out of the box and looked over and I have been so excited. i started watching the DVD to learn how to thread a bobbin as well as thread the machine. Well yesterday I went to Joanne's Fabrics and I was able to walk around and take a look what all they had. I needed some thread I didn't have any at all. LOL Found out when I thought I'd be able to thread the machine last weekend. Anyway, I asked if they sold left over parts of material as I am brand new to sewing and I wanted to practice. Sure enough they had a section called "Fabric Remnants" I was more than pleased to say the lease.

So I cut a small portion off the fabric I bought and made my first sewing...

I guess now I need to start finding some patters of things to make. I want to try a valance.

B-Day Present

This is my new sewing machine!!! WOOHOO - I can't wait to start using it.

After I got it home and I've been reading the manual and looking at the DVD that came with it I figured out I have no thread and no fabric - HAHA I Guess I need to go shopping!!!
