Mixed Media Art Quilt



MIXED MEDIA ART QUILT 7"X11"

For my swap partner Adrienne in my group UKArtswaps here


My attempt is after the style of Beryl Taylor,i really admire this lady as NOW i know how much work she puts into all her beautiful creations ! As its Valentines coming up soon,hearts sprung to mind :-] in fact everything i have created lately has hearts on,these things just happen lol.

I started off with a blank canvas in other words a piece of white cotton fabric and the same size piece of felt for backing.
I dye'd the cotton piece in muted colours,then left to dry while i made a piece of fabric paper,materials i used for that are napkins and organza material etc.......the info on how to make Fabric Paper is hereI then cut out the squares,oblongs and heart,with the FP ,which i machine sewed onto felt ,all these were placed onto the backing ,and moved around till i was happy with the design then i sewed those on.........I loved that butterfly(top left hand corner) that was part of a napkin showing through the Organza,just had to leave it !

I stamped the love heart and the heart bird into airdried clay,when dry i then painted with luminere paints,those were added,and glazed hoping the crackel glazes would strengthen the pieces.(we will see lol)

The image is a transfered fabric one,sewn on.I needed to fill in some gaps so out came the watercolour paper,which i tore into strips,stuck together and painted with watercolour, fixed these on with eyelets.

strips of red ribbon down the sides with fabric paper squares stitched on with beads.

Another enjoyable project,the last 2 days went super quick lol. !
