42/52 2008 Weekly Journal Quilt

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

Posted 11/5/08


This is my weekly journal quilt 42/52 2008. It was a bit earlier in October when I created it, and I was feeling the Halloween love (I am posting late!)  Anyway, I decided to experiment with both painstiks and freezer paper templates.  I used a background cloth that I had already painted with leftover paints.  We have bats under many of our bridges in Austin, so I decided to include those elements with either shapes made from freezer paper templates or by hand painting them.  I didn’t like where it was going, so I kept working it, and it got overworked and it’s still too 2 dimensional. But, I learned things about working with the oil paintstiks and freezer paper templates, so it was a lesson.  I think my final result of 43/52 is better, and I worked with similar materials and processes, so look for the post soon!
