This is a (very close up) hint of a new art piece I have been working on for some weeks now. It's for the Around The World In 20 Quilts group challenge. The Challenge was to use recycled pieces and to do something you'd not done before, learn something new. I learned to make fabric paper, and portraits. It also incorporates stencils, paint and thread painting. I used recycled newspaper, tissue paper, embroidery floss and muslin. You'll have to wait until March 31st to see the whole thing, but it is going into an art show at our local gallery this Saturday.

  8. Wow, Kelly, not sure what to do with this compliment. Guess I'll just have to take a little humble bow.

  9. This is looking great. I can't wait to see the end result
