Breakfast club story prompts

 

I have had a great day teaching one lovely lady today how to free machine quilt and between teaching her and chatting I made this for 'Breakfast Club' tomorrow.  It is a tin full of first line story promts for Hope and Grace

I printed out the ideas and changed the font to make them more interesting. Then I used my new water  soluble wax crayons to add some colour and then gave them a brush over with water....

Next I free embroidered some leaves on old paper....

and gave them a wash of green paint.....
Voila! Job done. Now I'm flying off out to a firwork night do so no time yet again to vist AEMD. Bother!

I never would have thought of that. Free motion embroidery is something I've always wanted to try and combining it with paper crafts is just too perfect. *files away the idea* Thanks!

What a lovely idea..your breakfast club puts my morning rituals to shame!(throwing down cereal and wrestling with a 4 year old to put on her clothes!)
It's lovely to see what you've been upto lately and I love the quilt you made and the headline newspaper story to go with it..so funny :)x

Reminds me of my junior school...we had a first line to complete that went, "Down through the water, down , down, down until....." I loved that first line!

What a fantastic idea, Moira. And so beautifully and thoughtfully executed.
How have you been since Blogtoberfest? I just wanted to let you know that I'm hosting another (albeit gentler and more introspective) blog challenge over the month of December called #reverb12.
Would be so rapt if you joined us!

There's a little giveaway too. :-)

Take care,
