2021 Craft Plans

The public domain photo above of Camille Pissarro’s 1897 “The Boulevard Montmartre on a Winter Morning” is from https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/437310

  • Start diamond painting kit of “The Boulevard Montmartre on a Winter Morning” by Camille Pissarro purchased from AliExpress Zamyel Store
    • Due to the YouTube video “What a Copyright Strike Taught Me – A Wake Up Call for the Diamond Painting Community” by Tiny Worlds of Wonder (https://youtu.be/l7Vo44-B6bc) I don’t want to take any chances with copyrights.
    • I have older craft kits I purchased and did not think copyright was an issue with them. Going forward I going to make sure it is a copyright free item and stick to the public domain photos and or older paintings or have something uniquely my own.
    • I purchased the larger size of 50*70 cm for just under $20, and I already put together some 20″x30″ stretcher bars with acid-free foam board for it. I am very happy it works well with a somewhat standard frame size. The actual painting size is smaller than 20″x30″ and I already cut a piece of of this shiny almost metallic black fabric for the background on the frame and zigzag stitched the edges and attached the fabric to fusible interfacing.
  • finish and frame the four season trees cross stitch kits
    • have dad help me frame it with 30×30 inch stretcher bars to avoid going the custom frame route
    • each tree is going to be frame on 14×14 inch stretcher bars
  • finish my sewisabel.com logo custom diamond painting
    • rat-tail bind the edges
  • maybe work on stitch bible and a decorative stitch artwork piece
  • finally frame several small diamond paintings completed over a year ago
    • going to use stretcher bars or canvas panel 11″x 14″
  • paint stretcher bar edges for future fiber art pieces
  • seal and frame my first two attempted acrylic pours
  • texture or glitter or gold leaf paintings
    • would like to use the demos from YouTube channels Julia Kotenko Art and or Dazzling Designs By Denise
    • plan to use 11″ x 14″ canvas, it is just an easier size to manage
    • I would like to make a batch of at least three and then try to list and sell them on Etsy, maybe eBay
  • add more craft project and artwork photos to this page
