I am glad Helga, owner of ARTchix Studio, is back with a new challenge inspired by her vacation in the Bahamas ~ just add turquoise! Here's the deal: Make a piece of art (any size or shape) using the color turquoise as your main color. Scan and post it to your blog, flickr account or website and link back to Helga's blog. Then go leave a comment on Helga's 'just add turquoise' post with a link to you blog -cool!
I used fabric I had painted while vacationing on Wolfe island (more on that to follow) to make a fabric ATC for this challenge. I just love receiving an inspiring idea from Helga to push me forward to create! I chose a faux post sticker from the Peace, Tranquility & Harmony sheet, and layered a new transparency image from the royal inchie birds sheet. I used my xyron adhesive sticker maker to do this easily. I added batting and a plain 2.5 x 3.5" card inside for stiffness, then sewed around the images and the edges with a zig zag stitch. Then I decided to add fringe and turquoise beads for a little extra. Thanks again Helga! Just what I needed to do on a rainy afternoon in CT . . .
