Join me in JOY Jam?

Here are the first two hearts for Joy Jam! The roses are painted on bleached muslin and free-motion stitched with yummy variegated threads.

Let me know if you need a step-by-step tutorial. I don't have to go back to work for 26 hours and am in a real stitchin'/photo-takin' kind of mood!

The words are printed on twill tape and stitched to the painted layer before the backing is added.

I'll be working in at least two styles. The other will be rust-dyed fabric with layered texture and the twill tape message.

Each heart will have a card attached by sheer ribbon. This is the prototype for the card with torn edges.

Join me in this project? I'd love to post photos of YOUR joyful artwork!!
