This is a piece that I made earlier in the year and I know you've seen it before. It was in Somerset Studio a few months ago. Well, I want to show you a few close ups just so you can see how I stitched it in place!
Fabric with batting behind was glued into the opening of the old album mat....to provide me a base to sew my coin purse to ~
This is just a close up of the old watch face with a button glued right in the center! I snipped the shank off ~
These are those wooden eggs that you can buy at the craft stores, just painted with the acrylic paint and speckled with watered down brown paint on a toothbrush using my thumb as the device to flick the paint!
The art quilt is FINISHED!! I REALLY enjoyed making this....and figured out that you can sew most anything to fabric....it was like making an assemblage with a different medium! I'd better not show it all as it's going to Somerset tomorrow ~ but you get the idea!! Oh and by the way, I LOVE printing on fabric!!! It's like creating your very on fabric right in your home. Check out the way I do it by clicking the link in my sidebar....
I hope you had a wonderful New Year's day!! We sure did! DH made the most amazing traditional dinner...baked ham, collard greens and black-eyed peas ~
Thank you all so much for your sweet words about my post yesterday, but I truly mean it that we all inspire one another....it's a magical cycle!
Wishing you a very happy Friday sweet friends ~
