Quilted ATC

Here is another Artist Trading Card from my orange and  turquoise series. The batch of 15 cards will be trading among the members of a art quilt group I belong to. This set of cards originated from a stack of fabric I printed on. The remnants were chopped up into the classic 2.5"x 3.5" size.

Gone Fishing

Happy Father's Day to my husband and avid fisherman. The fish print was made while at my fellow art quilter's studio.

Washed Up ATC

This ATC is from a collection I made from a mono-printing experiment. It features washers that I lifted (that is another word for stole) from my husband's work bench. In addition to mono-printing using a gelli plate, I used a self made stencil out of freezer paper.

More ATC

As I mentioned in a previous post, I recently had a creative play date with a friend and we went crazy monoprinting fabric. I'll be displaying some of the Artist Trading Cards I've made with the fruits of our labor.

Print Making & Doodles

I went to a friends house for a creative play date and became introduced to the joys of print making. While I've been mostly printing on fabric, today I took some watercolor paper to absorb my leftover paint. Since another obsession of mine as of late is lettering, I worked on my design skills with this letter K.

Garden Inspiration

After a long, brutal winter there is nothing like the inspiration that is to be found in spring flowers. Here are some flower from my flower beds that I'm using for some upcoming art quilts.

Summer Purse

I wanted to retire my winter, black purse. Nothing in the store was really speaking to me so I created this "stripper purse." Ok, it is really a purse made with strips of fabric. Loving it!
