a fabric and paper art quilt in the works.....


Once again I am in the middle of trying something from my current issue of "Cloth Paper scissors". The fabric paper art quilt thing. I have been having so much fun with it even though i really don't follow directions down to the letter. I am still in "use what I have" mode, so if I don't have it, i substitute....I used matte modpodge instead of diluted glue and I didn't have muslin so I used this canvasy fabric stuff...I also added that texture magic by delta and I just love it...I did it after all the layering of papers....Anyway, the front part is done and drying but here is a peek...It is called, "under my wing". I am going to quilt it and bind it tomorrow or maybe even later tonight. I am getting more adventurous with painting but I still don't claim to be a painter...I just have fun and use pencils and watercolors and some acrylics and if I don't like it, I paint over it with white and start all over! I think i am going to have to add some gold leafing too...remember I am Melinda the lover of shinies.....(think magpie). Oh yeah, I added a chiffon flower charm too. Just love those things..Tomorrow I need to focus again on what I need to do and not just play and wander..Although I prefer playing and wandering and I am really good at it. Try this stuff, it is a lot of fun!

I am still pouring over my issue of cps too and that looked fun. It doesn't sound too hard and your's turned out beautiful so far. Anyone who paints is a painter I say!
