It took some will and determination but I finally managed to create some art this weekend. I started on Friday and with all the stops and starts I had to do what with taking care of the family and doing chores I managed to pull together this 5 X 7 mini art quilt.
The challenge on the Paper Imagery Designs yahoo group last week was Wear Me. The theme was to creat a piece of art that could be worn or was of something worn. I have been admiring the vintage shoe sheet since it made it's way to my house almost a month ago.
I knew I had to use it in a piece of fabric art. At first I thought I would make an atc, then after I made the transfer I decided a 4 x 6 would be better. Then the more I thought about it I though you know what? I am going to do a 5 x 7. And the 5 x 7 size worked out perfect for what I had brewing around in my mind.
When I first started pulling out my stash of fabric and trims I was thinking Marie Antoinette. Pink and frilly but as I started putting it together I decided to tone it down a bit. I love the way it turned out because it is not so over the top and I wanted the shoe transfer to be the focal image. Too much lace would have taken away from the fabric transfer of the shoe.
So what do you think?
