Results from the QA Goodies

Well I pondered for what feels like forever, and I couldn't come up with something I felt was really WOW. This was indeed a challenge in that most of the items I received were all the same coloring. Not a lot of contrast. I feel like I flunked this challenge. But I will chalk it up to experience. The first photo shows how I cut up pieces of everything and laid it out on a piece of felt. I then laid tulle over it all and quilted with rows of stitching.


I had a lot of leftover cheese cloth and small pieces of each of the other items. So I took an old book page and smeared it with matte medium and started sticking shapes down on it. Then covered it all with the cheese cloth. After it dried, I took some purple paints and lightly brushed over some areas. Then I added some interference powders for an irridenscent look in spots.


I cut heart shapes out of the paper fabric and put them on pieces I'd cut out from the collage fabric. And there you have it, postcards and ATCs.

  3. These are fabulous. I've found working with materials provided by someone else to be the MOST challenging thing - you just have to delve deeper to find the answer. You have succeeded brilliantly :)
