Fabric Sketching or Sketching with Scissors?

I'm doing some quick 'fabric sketches' this month. just for the fun of it and because I have SO much fused fabric! I'm putting a time limit on this - say 1/2 hour, and using whatever scraps of fused fabric I come up with each day - mostly free-form cutting - I could call it "Sketching With Scissors" - just thought of that! If any come out well I can finish them with stitching. A challenge for myself!
Just trying to keep the creative juices flowing now that Art Every Day Month is over…

So, here is today's quickly cut sketch. I used leftover fabric from yesterday's piece. The leaves ended up being too dark for the background so I spent time fussy cutting lighter edges for them. Too much fussing!! All in all, it ended up taking almost an hour. I'll give it a B- .

Now I'm off to do some much needed house cleaning!

Hope you are having a great day!!

I give it an A:)
So relaxing to just do a quick sketch and let it go, isn't it.
Hope you give yourself plenty
of rest and good-to-you time,

You have the best way of putting things Jennifer -
yes, "do a quick sketch and let it go" - that's the whole idea!
Thank you!

I think it's lovely, but I know how you feel when things don't go exactly how you want them to.

I can't believe that Art Every Day Month is over already! But it's already 2 days into December. How did that happen.

I'm impressed by how much you did for AEDM and I'm glad that you're carrying on with your creative momentum. Love seeing all your creations with flowers and cats. :)

Sketching with scissors! Like running with scissors. That fused fabric seems like a gold mine. Fun to go through it and see what you can do:)
