This is a photo of one of my pieces, currently untitled. It is 8.5 x 11. I made it as one of my journal pages in March of this year. We made a page each month, but we only had to choose five to submit to the exhibit. This is one that I did not include for the exhibit. I used some of my photographs to experiment in layering/transparency using organza as well as vellum. This photo was taken before I put the edging around it.

I was fortunate to attend the Houston International Quilt show for the first time this year. I got to see and be inspired by this year's journal pages exhibit. It gave me a chance to read the other artists' statements and have a more intimate viewing of such personal/creative/experimental works. I attended the Studio Art Quilt/Journal Quilt reception as well and was able to pick up my copy of Creative Quilting: The Journal Quilt Project in person. Many thanks to Karey Bresenhan for creating this project and hosting the reception.

I also just read your QA post and decided to visit. What a great site, you do such cool work. I love you dia de los muertos piece as well as the transparency piece. I just started this whole process and don't yet have the guts to put my blog up for all to see on the quiltarts board. I also don't have a whole lot of work to post! Keep up the great work and I will check back to see what's new in your world.
