I met two fabulous women at the International Quilt Show in Houston this November. Judy lives in Virginia and Liz is in Colorado and both are mixed media artists. I took a class with Judy and I learned to make silk paper from Liz. Both women inspired me a lot, encouraging me to try new things. I got all of the silk pieces I needed to make some paper and then added all sorts of fun things I had in my stash drawers. Mixed media taught me that I had saved all these crazy things for a reason and that was a great feeling. Liz had made a journal front with a piece of silk paper and it was featured in one of her books. I look at it often and think, I've just got to do this and today was the day.
Hope you enjoyed this diversion from cards and stamping. Stamping will return soon, maybe even tomorrow - tune in and see what appears next.
Happy Stamping, sewing, quilting, paper making or whatever else fills you with joy!
