Messy Kitchen produces something pretty good and I don’t mean food!

If you recall a few posts back I had a huge mess in my kitchen hand painting some silk fabric. Here in Oregon it rains a lot so I have limited choices for a paint studio. My little make shift studio tent out side is no longer workable because the downpours have commenced. So to my husband’s dismay the kitchen is myContinue reading “Messy Kitchen produces something pretty good and I don’t mean food!”

Adventures in silk painting or how to make a BIG mess in your kitchen!

I’ve been having so much fun with silk painting lately, as I’ve repeatedly mentioned. There are some very cool  techniques and I’m an  artist from way back, so this is  like it in many ways. I’m finding lots of applications, fabric for art quilts, silk paintings, hand painted scarfs and so on. One little problem though, I liveContinue reading “Adventures in silk painting or how to make a BIG mess in your kitchen!”

the countdown continues and my frantic levels are high

     Working like a mad woman and in general losing my sanity. I leave for Vegas for Art in the Park tomorrow morning [yikes! e gad! ]. This is  a big event that draws 100,000 visitors to Vegas from all over. They come in by the busload.    Needless to say, I want to have aContinue reading “the countdown continues and my frantic levels are high”

Some progress on thread painting the floral quilt

Worked some more on the quilt in progress, thread painting the flowers. Not done, but it’s coming along. Here’s the progress since last post.               That’s it for now.

TWO PEONIES , POPPIES and a FOXGLOVE a botanical art quilt

I used applique to attach the flowers, which were thread painted to add body and detail.

Here’s the finished art quilt.

Here’s where we are  so far; the backing . batting and top background are sandwiched  together. I use a spray adhesive 505 Spray And Fix to sandwich everything together.  The parts of the puzzle pieces are in the process of being fused to the quilt sandwich. As you can see there is subtle color variations with the  individual partsContinue reading “progress on new quilt and raw edge appliqué tutorial 2”

Art quilt “Jelly Fish Love” is finished. What a fun custom order.

When I got the request for this custom order for 2 jelly fish featured in an art quilt, I would never have thought of doing a wall hanging with this theme. But the more I thought about the request, the more excited I got about the idea. It was intriguing and interesting, and fun to work out how to go about it. I think that’s part of the enjoyment of creating any sort of art; translating an idea into something concrete. Working out the “how am I gonna do that?” to “I did it and it’s good!!” .

This is the fun part. Today this is what I’ve done, real progress on the thread painting, this isContinue reading “Progress on the art quilt-jellyfish in love”
