Creative Explotion

My creative flow is still moving fast, In fact it is exploding! I need to stay off Youtube, LOL It is all I can do to resist buying new supplies. While reasearching mixed media fabric art I found hundreds, if not thousands of mixed media art journal videoes. Yesterday I decided to drag out the container with all my art supplies from my painting days.

I wanted to at least inventory what I had and see if the paints were dried out. Only one bottle had dried out. Yippee. I had 30 minutes before leaving for my quilt guild meeting so decided to finger paint with the acrylics. This was the result.

Nice start for a background. I haven.t decided how to use it or which way to turn it. It kind of looks like the ocean on top or It could be a cloudy sky. 
What do you think?

I started a Fall Table Runner to put in my shops. 

Finished quilting and embroidering This Fall mini quilt. I want to add two wood buttons to that white piece of fabric but I do not have any. Guess I will buy some on payday. Everything on this mini quilt is hand done. Cutting, quilting, embroidery all by hand. 

I am adding this to the back of the mini quilt to help it hold its shape for hanging or sitting on a display holder. I forgot the name of it and didn't keep the package. It irons on both sides.

And last but not least is the Winter hanging quilt. I quilted the snow in a wavy pattern by hand and started quilting the house using embroidery floss to give the illusion of wood slats, and to cover a boo boo. Don't tell. 

To further enable my creative explosion my guild had a guest presenter. Guess what she does. Yup Mixed Media Art quilts. Her name is 
Michele Sanandajian. Wow such a talented artist. I have already signed up for a class presented by her at Quilfest Orlando in January 2017. 

That is my September so far. How about you? What has your creative voice had you doing this month? Please share, I enjoy and am inspired by your talents. If you have a blog send me the address, I would love to visit.

Until next time, let go and create!

  1. You look like you've had a VERY good September! I'm struggling a little bit with the back-to-school season as the University where I work, but slowly but surely I'm creating!

  2. It all looks great Debbie. Feeling inspired is always a good thing and it sounds like you are really enjoying yourself. Good for you!!!

  3. Debbie let us know when you can if you went inland and how you are after the hurricane!

  5. The first thing I thought of when I saw the finger painting was the ocean. Love the colors, Debbie! Are you working on that piece? I'd love to see what you do with it. Your art quilts are wonderful. You're really on a roll. Love it! Hugs, Nancy
