Second Paper Quilt
I just realized that I hadn't posted this yet. This paper quilt is 12" X 12" and is from the second lesson in Terri Stegmiller's class, Paper Quilting Explorations. I'm having a lot of fun with this class. In the first lesson, we colored our fabric-backed paper while it was still wet with the glue. For this lesson, we waited until it was dry to color it. Terri gave us several more suggestions for coloring techniques. I used Twinkling H2Os on the bird. For the background, I took one of the pieces I did from the first week and added to it, using sequin waste (also know as punchinella) as a stencil, paint bottle lid as a stamp, and edge of a credit card as a paintbrush. The words are computer printed on watercolor paper. The branch and beak are scrapbook papers, and the eye is painted on watercolor paper. The leaves are papers from the first lesson. The music notes are drawn directly onto the background. This was fun to do, especially the background - I really love adding more and more layers like this. I want to do a fish quilt too.
