Quilt With Us

Wow, where has the time gone.  It's been a busy few days around here.  Not sure exactly why other than our SEAHAWKS are going to the Super Bowl.  

Monday I worked on the second pass-a-round for our guild.  We are making journal pages in mixed media and have instructions to "s--t-r-e-t-c-h" ourselves in the design process.  We started by cutting 140 lb water color paper into 4" x 6" rectangles, added a journal with any instructions, and then passed it on.  What a mess...."stretch" myself means "dirty up every room in your house" I guess.  I had the kitchen all mucked up with making salt clay (found on Pinterest), the family room with doing a practice while watching the game and my sewing room for all the final hoo hah.

Here's what I ended up with.  I used, water colors, ink, fabric dye, chalk, Mod Podge, stamps, bubble wrap, salt dough, pearl cotton and a hot glue gun.  I think I qualify for the "mixed media" rule #1.  Oh! I forgot the buttons...            The owner travels a lot...in fact is a SnowBird and goes south so I did my version of the New Mexico (cant spell Albuquerque) balloon festival.    Gotta go....shower shampoo and shine... Happy Wednesday to all! ☺

Love it!  Go Hawks!  We are fans of them as QB Russell Wilson was a Wisconsin Badger.

Go Hawks! It sounds like quite a project. I love the end result but it sounds like too much work to do during a football game :0!

I think your journal cover is a definite WINNER.  Very creative my friend and definitely "mixed".  I agree with Pam, you have a great guild. By the way, my ears are still recovering from all the yelling I heard on Sunday during the game, and I know it was coming from over your way. LOL
