Roses are Red'
Violets are Blue,
I tried a technique
I would like to share with you!
Since I first tried this technique (with Ringed Circles), I have wanted to see how well it applies to points. Valentine's Day provided the perfect opportunity, and since the February challenge with Le Challenge is DOTS, this sweet little mugrug is what I came up with!Le Challenge having a personal challenge in mind: to expand my horizons in the world of art quilting. For some reason or another, I have found the themes to be tough to apply in this way, perhaps too general actually.
The topic of 'stealing' art and techniques has been on my mind since reading recent posts on a blog I really enjoy, Creations... Quilts, Art... Whatever. I was reminded of this quote after reading Nina Marie's post about 'borrowing' techniques. (last week's Off The Wall)
‘The difference between a good artist and a bad one is: the bad artist seems to copy a great deal, the good one really does.’ ---- William Blake
So, although I have not met my personal goal by letting lose with some art quilting this month, I did learn a new technique for curves/circles/points that I can apply to art quilting in my future! I took a lot of pictures along the way and hope you find them easy to follow.
