Sew Inspired

It's been awhile since I've done any stitching. I forgot how relaxing it could be. It still is my overall favorite crafty treat to make. Here are two altered art quilts I created using fabric prints of my original paintings. They are both completely hand stitched.

The first quiltie is a bookmark (SOLD) I created in a crazy quilt style. It measures 2.25" X 6" (Not including decorative yarn). I used multiple fabrics, felt, crocheted flowers and sequins.

The second quiltie is an ACEO (Art Cards, Editions & Originals). For those of you that don't know, I began sharing my art in 2005 on ebay in ACEO format. The ACEO size is 2.5" X 3.5".

This mini art quilt was created using burlap, felt, sequins & beads.

You can find more info on this ACEO quiltie up for auction now on ebay.

Happy Tuesday to you all!

ComMission Completed

This commission piece was only one of the many things that were keeping me a busy bee. Besides everyday life, I've been working on more goodies I will be sharing soon. This painting is actually the largest piece I have ever done. Including the wooden frame I added to the canvas, it measures 25" X 37" X 2.5" deep. I really enjoyed working on a bigger scale. Now that I've tried it, I'm hooked.

I also got the chance to use this lovely decorative easel
my sister-in-law gave me for my birthday. Thanks again Tra! I love it!

This was created using oil pastels, acrylic, metallic & 3D paints.

Textured and sanded for a distressed appearance.

Her halo & wings shimmer with acrylic paints and a dust of glitter.

Touchable texture all around.

Who can stop themselves from feeling the textures
of a finished painting?

Not me. :)

Until next time... Thanks again for your continued support in my art!
