This is the place where I make my marks and leave my impressions on fiber and paper and all things mixed media. It's the story of my art journey, my successes and failures, my challenges and simple joys .

Serendipity Study One
Believe it or not, it took me the entire day yesterday to make this little 10" X 7" art quilt. I started with a gelatin print I made a few months ago. First, I made the stencil and it went from there.
I traced my stencil onto parchment paper, reversed it, went over the image again in pencil, adhered it to fabric that was adhered to Misty Fuse, cut it out after it cooled down. Same technique for each of the shapes. Ironed each piece onto white cotton then free motion quilted it between batting and backing. I then "faced" it to finish: facing tutorial.
