I tell you,
when those creative juices begin flowing....
my mind starts racing!!!!!
I am fortunate to belong to two quilt guilds
(one 10 minutes away, one 40 minutes away)
and last night,
I had the opportunity to hear Bonnie McCaffrey....
She talked about where she gets her inspiration...
She has an incredible body of work
but I was most taken with her newer art...
She calls this fantasy fabric...
(a plain fabric layered with fibers like Tintzl, angelina fibers under tulle)
and the incredible quilting which is filled in with fabric paint...
Today, she is leading a workshop on painting faces
which I cannot attend
but we saw some of those quilts...
and this is fun...
(quilted in contrasting thread and then colored in with painted dots).
It is fun to see something new!
My mind is feverishly working overtime,
thinking of how I can incorporate some of the techniques into my own work!
And if that wasn't enough...
I also borrowed this book from our library...
and treated myself to this publication...
It is hard to stop my brain!!!
I played in my sewing/craft room on Sunday and made these post cards...
and have been experimenting with image transfer..
(this is my paternal grandmother as a child)
and tea dyeing too..
(this is my paternal grandfather and his sister).
all this creating makes me dizzy!
