Confetti

Here is my Confetti bird, created with scrap paper:

And below is my Confetti quilt that I made in 2009:

I had purchase a fancy sewing machine and was starting to take watercolor classes so I combined the two mediums.

Yes, the papers are squares of  a painted watercolor on paper that I cut-up and then sewed to my quilt.  It reminded me of confetti so it became the title for my quilt.  I also added a few beads and sequins for embellishment:

And I even sewed my name on the back!

A blogger friend of mine, creates fabulous experiments on paper that she is going to incorporate into art quilts.  She also draws AMAZING portraits of people.  You may want to check out her blog at Create Art Everyday.  And yes, she does create art every day like me!  🙂

And one more piece of paper  – a Confetti giraffe I created in 2013:

  2. The birds and the quilt are awesome, though I think the giraffe is my favourite here, just love the multicolour combo with confetti 🙂
