Sequin confetti, of course!  Hi, Laura here today with a bunch of ATC’s.  I am taking part in a swap you see… 52 cards themed ‘Love, Kindness and Hope’ and in return, I get 52 cards from all over the world made by different artists.

I start with a master board – a big piece of watercolour paper that will eventually be cut down to size.  I made three sheets with different colours using mainly Shimmerz sprays in different finishes.  I added some stencilling with Dazzlerz paste for some texture.

Next, I moved on to the fun bit – filling up 52 little glassine bags with sequin confetti.  I won’t list all of the sequin mixes I used as there are far too many!  You can find them all here!

I printed out the phrase “throw kindness around like confetti” and trimmed them down to small slips of paper.  I have all my elements ready now so I set up my sewing machine.  I picked a background, a glassine bag of confetti and a sentiment slip and ran them through my sewing machine on a straight stitch.

It was good fun whizzing them all through not having to worry about straight lines!

ATCThey’ve now been parcelled up and posted and the tricky bit begins… I have to wait for them to be swapped and posted back!  I’m not very good at waiting!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Laura
