Yep, I’ve skipped a month.
Only because an idea came to me quickly for the little June quilt and I was impatient and had to start it straight away.
“Ankh – Life”, my art journal quilt for April is in memory of our trip to Melbourne and a visit to the Melbourne Museum to see relics of King Tutankhamen's tomb.
The background of the quilt is painted lutradur (using acrylics) and the gold highlights were made with lumiere paint. When completely dry it was run through the ink jet printer to print out the hieroglyphics. The ankh sympbol was appliqued on and highlighted with prismacolour pencils. It was so much fun to try some new to me techniques and I am loving the whole monthly art journal quilt journey.
Recently, a group of friends and I went for coffee and lunch at Highfields. We were joined by the lady who recently showed us her tangles, Chris. (Thanks Chris).
Could this be a zentangle coffee in her honour?
We also discovered a braid shop in the same complex, and I made a couple of purchases- couldn’t resist. I was going to put a photo up but I have … um…….misplaced them for the moment. Next time…..
