1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / acrylic painting - wedding present for a friend on: December 08, 2007 11:34:26 AM

one of my best friends got married in september and i wanted to make her a special wedding present. so i started working on a painting for her. it was a landscape, and i had it almost done but just couldn't get it perfect. no matter what i did, i wasn't happy with it. so i ended up completely painting over it and starting again with a flower as my new subject. i *finally* finished it today. it's two months late...but i hope she likes it.

while i was trying to finish it, i looked forward to posting it on craftster and getting feedback Smiley
thanks for looking!!

love, petritent

1. the landscape version. close to being finished, but not quite there. i was at this stage for a looong time.

2. and here i am applying some gesso. bye landscape!

3. here's this finished painting! i'm so relieved it's done Smiley

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / clothing-scrap quilt on: February 05, 2007 11:24:51 AM
My first Craftster post! Im always so inspired by the stuff I see on here, so Im excited to make my first contribution to the site! Anyway, heres the story behind this quilt.

When I returned home after traveling abroad for a while, I wanted to kind of commemorate the experience in some way. The idea of making a quilt popped into my head, and I began going through my travel photos in search of an image that would both represent the trip and translate well in fabric.

Next, I rifled through all my old clothes and selected colorful fabrics to use for the design. At Jo-Ann Fabric, I picked up a bunch of orange fleece to use for the main body of the quilt. The whole thing came together through a process of cutting up bits of my old clothes and gluing them to the fleece. Once Id finalized the design, I began sewing randomly over the entire thing, occasionally alternating thread colors. An old blanket served as batting, and when all the pieces had been assembled I roughly quilted it with a handful of star-shaped clusters of gold stitches.

Thanks for looking!
