New Year - new ideas

January nearly over, where has it gone? Well, I began this year on a high with so many ideas of new mediums to try out.

So far I have delved into the world of ACEOs. They are very addictive to make! This is my first one entitled Internal Combustion - lots of fiery red done in acrylics.

Now since my experimentation with different art forms I decided to open another Etsy shop called On A Whimsey http://onawhimsey.etsy.com/ This was because my new items will not be sitting too well in my Precious Quilts shop http://preciousquilts.etsy.com/ which specialises in baby quilts and crochet blankets!

Another experiment (for me!) is quilted postcards. Here is my first attempt which is not good enough to sell but I will try to improve it. Still, I thought it was fun!




This I have entitled Mr & Mrs Piggy Valentine! I fuzzy cut the piggies, placed them on some bright yellow gingham with a big red felt heart beside them.


Recently joined another group where we do swaps... this I find really exciting and challenging. Above, left, is my first attempt at an ATC swap under the caption of Nouveau Art.



However, for the traditionalists amongst you, I have made a Victorian style christening cape which you will find in my PQ shop. Actually, I am in the process of completing another which I made in white but am adding pearlised beads to the edging to make it all that more precious!


Here is the first one I made in a pale cream/off white mixed fibre yarn:-





All I need is the baby to demonstrate:)

It's always so gratifying to see some "Reach" artistically into a completely different medium (ATC/ACO)and have such lovely results. Still, I'm a bit of a traditionalist and favor/love your quilting. You are gifted in so many ways.
