Bottom half heavily embroidered and free motion sewn; click to see close up details on cut up collagraph plate pieces, and hand made beads.When I found this bag of snaps on strips of cotton I had no idea where they would wind up,
but they were perfect for my collagraph plate for making holes/circles...the lace and velcro add even more texture to this piece. Back side of snaps, heavily painted candy wrapper, and crinkled papers delight me on this part... The hand made beads shine too with their shiny papers and gold wire.
And finally the whole quilted wall hanging!
Where would you hang it?
The culmination of my weekend play with art techniques comes in the format of this colorful richly textured art quilt.
Yesterday I reported the fun I had making hand made paper and wire beads; and playing in paint and textiles and outside the box embellishments to make a collagraph plate.
Well here is the result of taking those practices and cutting, sewing, painting, embroidering and pulling them all together into this ART QUILT!
I wouldn't be at all surprised if it makes it into my ETSY store very soon.
