Mixed Media.......New Class Sample

I recently stamped these tea bag papers

Click Images to Enlarge:

I decided to use a few of them in a new
Mixed Media Class Sample Quilt:

This is a piece of fabric that was Rust Dyed
last summer.
It will be the foundation for this mixed media piece.

Auditioning a few tea bag papers
and metal embellishments...

The stamped tea bags show up nicely on the lightly rusted areas

Auditioning a few found papers

At this point...
all of the tea bag papers have been fastened down with
soft gel medium

Playing with the placement of the
metal leaf light switch cover

Not sure which orientation feels right
for the light switch cover...

This lay out seems balanced.

I will hand sew the metal embellishments on
after all of the machine quilting is completed.

Waxed Threads

I will bring this to class as a sample
and couch down these waxed threads.

I hope to see YOU in class !

Wow -- your work is phenomenal! Very different and intriguing. I like it a lot. I found your blog when I went to vote for a quilt for this weeks Quilter's Gallery contest. Your "The Audition" is lovely and got my vote! Good luck! :)

I love your work :-)
The rust and the tea bags is great together.
Have a great week end.
