Fiber Arts 2010 Journal Exchange.
My final artistic completion for 2009 is this journal cover exchange for Fiber Art Yahoo Group. It is quilted on postcard material, with charms, hand made bead, and beading. The insides and back covers are covered with Wallpaper, and I added yarns, to drap down for a book mark,, also added a 2010 calendar inside. In our exchange of ideas some one mentioned covering the "black" side with Duck Tape. I have some bright Orange that I use to cover sewing machine cords at Retreats.. The Orange is a bit wild, but does go with some of the fabrics. This group has a wonderful array of mixed media artists and I feel privileged to exchange art with them. I don't know how they do it all.. They have time management down to a science.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
