I am thrilled to have projects published in two new magazines! Such an honor and somewhat amazing to think of artists all over the world looking at my art and reading my "how to" steps.
My "fabric leaves necklaces" are in Belle Armoire Jewelry (Winter 2009).
There is a beautiful close-up shot of two of my necklaces (see page 117!). I really should take a picture of myself wearing one of the necklaces... maybe tomorrow.
I also have a project in the new Sew Somerset (also Winter 2009). I really like this magazine. It is full of arty projects using fabric.
My project is in the Art Quilts section and it's called "Hot Seat Collection." I thought is would be an interesting challenge to make a series of art quilts in each of the trendy sizes for various art quilts: Journal - 8.5x11, Postcard - 4x6, ATCs 2.5x3.5 and Inchies - 1x1.
Can you believe I used warm colors... so unusual for me! Here is the finished collection.
The Inchies are so tiny! I can't believe I zig zagged those edges.
Did you notice that I got a head start on the "chair" theme for Twelve by 12? I think I'll be going in a different direction for the February 1 reveal, but this project got me inspired.
Of course, this issue of Sew Somerset is full of inspiration. I am so thrilled to included among so many wonderful artists. I haven't had a chance to read through it yet. When I do, I'll share some links with you.
