These are a few things that I had been working on a month or so ago, and just never got around to posting:
This is a page for the "3 color" swap on Collage Unleashed. I did Traci Bautista's technique of paint scraping, then stenciled through punchinella, and stamped with a dragonfly stamp and a handmade swirl stamp. These are ATCs that I did for the 25/25 Technique swap on Art Techniques ATC group. I painted with dye on paper towels, stitched with metallic and variegated threads, and sewed them to a piece of cardstock.
These are ATCs for the "Asian" swap on Fiber Art ATCs. I sewed tiny pieces of red fabric (.5 x 1.25 inches) together, sewed on the gold metallic bias tape, and added the Chinese Coin pendant.
These were experimental pieces for the Raw Art "Every Day Art Project". Each piece is 6 x 6 inches. I played with melted crayon, paint, handdyed cheesecloth, and finished the edges with variegated yarns. They remind me of Ink Blot tests! What do you see?
I signed up for some new swaps--and I feel like I am slowly getting out of my rut. I have been continuing to declutter and organize. I was on a roll going through old quilt magazines, and keeping only articles that I am interested in, or images that I can use for collage. Until yesterday, when I went out to the garage to get another set of magazines, pulled the stack out, and there was one of the biggest spiders I have ever seen! He had to be 2 inches across--YUK! I absolutely HATE spiders! I have goosebumps just thinking about it. I managed to kill it, then hid in the house the rest of the day. Forget the magazines for now.
