I've been in a quilting mood ever since I participated in a quilt project we did at work. Here is an example of some of the projects I created:
Quilt for my daughter Chelsea. She picked out the purples and I added the greens. She wanted something soft kind of traditional, which is not my style. So I sort of compromised!
Even Dear Husband helped by clipping my runaway threads!
Here is my granddaughter quilt, I just love bright colors! The mermaid design I just love, even though you can't see too much of it!
The Father's Day card I made for my husband of 26 years. I used black card stock for the card itself, I then changed our picture to black & white. I printed it out on a transparency. I took scrapbook paper and gesso'd certain parts of the back to cover up some of the roses to give it a softer look. I sewed the transparency over the scrapbook paper, then glued them down to the cover. He LOVED it. By the way, yes we are on a Harley.
Here is the product of my journal class at the Queen's Ink in Maryland. Most of the pages look unfinished, but remember the point of the journal is to get some collage started on the pages, so you won't be intimidated by a blank page! It was so fun and simple to do. Of course I can still go in and gesso, paint, add fabrics, tape, ribbon.....
Here I am showing you what I used to create my travel journal, using the Remains of the Day (ROD) class techniques. You can click on this title to link to Mary Ann Moss website if you are interested in her online class. PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR LACK OF EDITING OF SOUND IN FIRST JOURNAL, IT WAS MY FIRST RECORDING! I hope you enjoy!
Did I mention I have a beautiful granddaughter? I will create a slide show of all the picture I used in her book of Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes. This was my first digital scrapbook project. It really wasn't too difficult after I purchased digital elements from various artists.
I am taking an online class on how to use my own handwriting for pages (Jessica Sprague). We had to create a list and I chose Beatles songs. Of course that reminded me of Adri, so I added her to the page, sort of a tribute to her.
These were my first experimental digital scrapbooking pages.
