I am so excited, I can’t even wait until tomorrow to do my weekly post! Tonight, I finished my second art quilt. I got a little more into this one than the last one because I added batting and all sorts of fun charms and embellishments. The hanger is a stick from our yard and noodly copper wire with some beads. The background is a piece of canvas I painted in Lisa Englebrecht’s workshop.
I really like the idea of mixing up all of the things I love: paper, scraps, transparency, rub-ons, charms, sparkly paint and now….stitching! It is so rewarding to add some stitches to my work. I feel like something has been missing for a while and this might be it! I know I’m a little late to the bandwagon, but I don’t care — I am hooked!
Huge thanks to Fran for helping me understand the steps in the process and talking through the hanger thing with me over IM tonight. I seriously couldn’t do half of the stuff that I do without her encouragement.
