Fabric Art Journal & DAG's Creepy Orphan Society Challenges (WIPs)
GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS!
Just a quick post here just to show you what I have been working on over the past few days.
As you know, I'm taking a workshop over at "The Land of Lost Luggage." It's quite interesting so far. I never knew there were so many acrylic mediums to change the look of your acrylic paints. LOL Still practicing and playing and having fun with all of the new techniques.
I made this Fabric Art Journal and have decided to use it for my workshop assignments. I used various fabrics from different designers. I love Amy Butler Fabrics, Alexander Henry, and Tina Givens Fabrics. So full of life and color. They really are fun to mix & match.
I sewed signature pages in the fabric journal. I used 140 lbs watercolor paper, heavy card stock, and canvas paper. I absolutely love the canvas paper in an art journal. I also added the pre-treated muslin sheets that I had previously prepared for other projects. LOVE THEM!
Over at DAG we are currently working on some Quarterly Challenges, and we will be posting them over at the DAG Blog at the end of the month. Some of the Artist's over there Donna and Essie really did a fantastic job on their challenge pieces.
We also have a group which is currently called "Creepy Orphan Society." This group is having a great time creating their "Creepy Orphans." I started working on some new ones. Here are some Works In Progress of these little gals. Hmmmmmm I can't wait to see them completed. They are currently drying! LOL
This little Dude isn't so Creepy! He might have to find another group to join! LOL
Until Next Time...Have a GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE!
