Mixed Media

I purchased Beryl Taylor's Mixed Media Art Quilts dvd download from Interweave over the weekend. I love Beryl's work, her fabric paper is divine. I had to have a go and below is my first attempt. I can imagine something like this as a journal cover.




The first two images are the details. The last image is the completed piece.





I also did some more sun printing.



And also some painted and stamped fabric. The last photo shows fabric that was stamped with my latest  foam stamps that I made recently.

I am planning to teach a workshop on Saturday November the 20th at home on decorating fabric using sun printing, dyes, paints and stamping. If you would like details please email me.

Not only is her work divine but what you have created after the class is super divine. Yes, this would be a fabulous cover for one of your journals. I love your work.

Your new art quilt is so scrumptious. The colors you use and the energy of the piece just amazing. I keep enlarging them to study just how you went about it. And yes I can see this as a journal cover as well. Beautiful.

Oh I love your piece inspired by Beryl Taylor...I have her book, but not the DVD, might have to look into that. Fantastic piece!

More sun dyeing too, it looks gorgeous and perfect for your journals.

Those journals are wonderful Ro. I keep going through mine and noticing different things each time. So much in them!!!!

Thanks for sharing,
