Art Every Day 24


Oh my goodness, November is flying by. It was a lovely and busy day 24. I spent the morning in my studio working on pink stuff. I found a Jacquard metallic paint called light violet. It has the barest sheen of violet.


I painted it over some bubble gum pink marbled cotton and cotton the sort of sheen that I was looking for.  You can see the difference in the first photo. The bottom is the painted section.

I also created a thermofax screen which I will use to add texture and interest to the pink background. Here is my test print.


I accomplished some other cool stuff for the piece which I am not going to show.

This afternoon, I drove over the river and through the city to Beaverton to meet IBOL guy and his wife, my art quilting friend and fellow twelve, Kristin La Flamme. Terry met us there, too.


And here are Mr and Mrs IBOL!!


We all brought our 12 Twelve X Twelve quilts and had fun ooing and ahing. I have seen all of Terry’s, but not Kristin’s. They are every bit as wonderful in person, perhaps even better.

Tomorrow, the cooking frenzy begins. Steph is hosting Thanksgiving dinner and we have divided up the menu items between us. Tomorrow, I also will cook a turkey to go to the community meal that our church serves. They will serve 800 meals. Mr C will spend the morning helping in the kitchen.
