One more little 6x6. I have been practicing using Tsukineko Inks. Because the ink likes to run, I used a Settliere Wax Stick to outline the flowers and leaves, THEN inked the color on. I've got a 30x24 piece sketched out that I would really like to work on using Tsukineko and Acrylic Paint - maybe on a silk organza layered alternatively over muslin and duck cloth. I'd like to enter at least one piece in one of the upcoming fall shows -- there's two that I'm particularly interested in - one in Northern Michigan and one in the Dairy Barn District of Ohio. I'm going to be placing links to a few of the more interesting call for entries up in a day or so -- in case you get the urge!
My specialty group (a subgroup of the Capital Quilter's Guild) is meeting this Thursday. I'm psyched because everyone will be bringing their "slice" of my Van Gogh Iris art quilt. Mine is almost done -I can't wait to get all the pieces. It should be pretty cool!
