New/Old Quilt Update

 Update with the New quilt...... I have started on the black and white fabrics..... I have only one section left..then I can start piecing all the blocks together.!!!1
 Update on the Old quilt..... I have made more hexies....
 Testing my hexies on different background fabrics.....
 I settled on this green... sewing it all down.....
then I removed the back fabric....

More work to do...but it is all coming along.

Of course...it would all go faster if I would stop making art journals...LOL!!!
NOT!!!

It's a Wonderful Life Workshop with Tangie Baxter

 Last month I went to a Tangie Baxter... "Its a Wonderful Life" workshop. Had a super fun weekend.
                                                           Here I am with Tangie Baxter
                                        We made our own stamps out of foam sheets....
                                                  ....here is the cover of my journal so far.....

                                      ....and my finished page using the stamps I made....
         Tangie gave us these really pretty girl pages....We worked on gel-transfers.....
               Here is the finished look of the gel- transfer....love how the edges look rough:):)
 Across the street was a yogurt shop....so we became the "messy apron gang" and walked over for a treat!!!
some finished pages in my journal.
                                                     Tangie giving us instructions....
It was absolutely a FABULOUS time.... Me (left), Karen (center), Cindy (right), and Kamie (photo bombed us)....lol!!! lots of fun.... thanks Tangie for a great workshop!!!

New Art Journal...Lifejournal #1


I decided that I needed a new art journal....one that I would take with me every where and put my life into. So, I was at Sweet Salvage and found this great book.... it was an Audubon bird book. For only 7.00 bucks.
 I took the book block out and covered the covers with vintage wallpaper. Then went through all my papers that I have collected...and made new signatures...and put them back in to the book.

                                                           Vintage wallpaper....
                                    The signatures ready to be sewn into the book....
                                                      The finished cover with collage on it...



 I made sure my first and last signature had the original pages of the birds showing....now let me show you some of the mixed papers I put inside the book.


                   I will do my art work on these different kinds of papers:):)
 The very first page....done..... I kept the bird whole...and did my art around it.
another page done...simple paint circles...with lots of doodling on top:):)

Very HAPPY with this new journal.

Look forward to working in it every day.

Thanks for stopping by....
