Something new and fun..
Over at my 15minuteplay site, I had a challenge for using solids only,
and using an ART painting as inspiration, to make something based
on SEGMENTING the image,
To get that nice chock a block feeling. Hop over to the site to see
what other's have been making...
I focused on this Matisse image. Something I have done before,
waaay back in my early bog days I had done another challenge similar to this click here.
I keep coming back to Matisse images, and I have decided that I want to
make a whole quilt this way... I may try to do it as a quilt as you go, am I crazy?
I just had so much fun with this, and this one is going for the swap...
So I need to make another! I started with her head, I didn't draw anything out,
and I just kept adding bits and bobs until I felt I had captured what
I wanted from the image. The Quilting was the most fun!
In one of the bee's I am in, my friend Andrea month had us doing this idea, and it
got me all excited again about my solids....
check out the other blocks click here
Her fabrics were just so yummy... Here's the one I made her.
Anyone Feel like playing along
with a Matisse quilt along?
google Matisse and click images, to see loads of inspiration!
Groups support is always a good thing to keep me motivated!
Just using any of his images as inspiration,
your take on this can be how ever you'd like it to be...
Play along and you can be a guest blogger here to show your work
and talk about your process. it can be as figurative or as abstract as you like,
it can be just based on color selection, your choice...
make one, make 20, whichever you like, It's summer...
But have FUN in trying something new and different.
comment or email me to play along.
Have a great day!
