ARTISTIC SEWING SUITE VERSION 6: FUN, FUN, FUN WITH CRYSTALS

I think some little fairy sprinkled “sparkle-lie” stuff over me while I slept as a child……………..I have always been drawn to bling!! One of my favourite games as a child  was to play dress-up with my Mom’s “junk” jewellery – the shinier the better!

Enter Artistic Sewing Suite version 6  –  I was SO excited…………….imagine being able to digitize where I want to apply my crystals (on a garment, quilt, scrapbooking…..ANYWHERE)  And then,  following a simple process, I can apply ALL my crystals in ONE step with an Artistic Press or iron. No more fussing with my crystal wand applicator ONE crystal at a time!! Which, of course, is fine if you are only applying 5 or 6 crystals to a project – but the fun soon dries up when you have dozens of crystals to apply!!!

SIMPLE MONOGRAM IN SAPPHIRE BLUE CRYSTALS

Now, I’m going to tell you a little secret …….I love this little knit top. But I spilt something on the front and could not get the stain out no matter how many times I washed it.  I was ready to toss it when the thought struck me after Artistic Sewing Suite landed on my desk:  Why not adhere a little crystal monogram over the stain and no-one will know ……… Well, that was before I let you in on my secret!

So here is how I did it:

10 EASY STEPS TO BLING

Here’s another garment I recycled & “blinged” :

Another plain little garment that I was ready to drop off at the thrift store before it got a new look : bling!

And, of course, I was having SO much fun, so another garment got “blinged”!

I used a  quilting embroidery design (Acufil Quilting Collection for MC11000 & MC12000) which I turned into crystal fill in the Artistic Suite software. Instead of a quilting stitch, it became bling…….and the crystal flower was applied to each pocket.
