Happy Pink Saturday! I'm doing something a little different this week. Beverly encouraged me to share my project from the quilt book workshop I'm currently taking from Lenna Young Andrews. This post has the links to the two other posts that make up my Pink Saturday offering. It's a series of pages for a Victorian quilted book. The other two posts are directly before this one. I hope you enjoy it! I'd like to thank Beverly for hosting Pink Saturday for us. If you click on the Pink Saturday icon to the right, it will take you to her site and a whole lot of links to more pink. Have fun!
My sewing machine got a workout today (not to mention the glue bottle)! I have two more pages for Lenna's Quilt Book Workshop to share with you. My book is Victorian in style, and the theme is Remembrances of a Young Woman. If you'd like to learn how to make a mini art quilt book of your own, just click on the link and it will take you right to Lenna's education site. I promise, you'll be glad you did!
Okay, now for the latest. The left side of the spread is our young woman. This one was fun to create. The rolled up letter is a gel medium transfer onto muslin. I had the perfect tattered paper rose to tie together with it. I found the rhinestone clip at a local antique store in one of my weekend hunts. There are many sites that you can download free photos and ephemera, such as The Graphics Fairy, Art-E-Zine, and The Vintage Moth. Dawn, over at The Feathered Nest also generously offers tons of vintage grahics, free for use in your artwork.
This is my favorite part.
For our young man, I wanted the page to be simpler and more masculine. The photo is another gel medium transfer. Isn't he a fox? I printed the quote onto twill tape with my printer. The fabrics came from our local thrift store, as did the vintage laces.
The buttons were antique store finds, and the postcard, calling card and ticket were free downloads that I shrunk down to fit my page.
Aren't they cute together? In their day, they would have never been allowed to be in a room alone together. That just wouldn't have been proper. What a shame! Of course, at some point, I'll have to create a wedding page.
Thanks for visiting! Come back and see me soon. I'll have plenty more to show you.
Until next time,
