Mixed Media Monday
Today's topic for Mixed Media Monday is "The Games People Play". I just happened to be in the process of making this cloth-paper mini quilt and found the perfect words for it in a vintage children's textbook. This is my first submission for MMM. Hopefully it won't be my last.
The background is painted canvas cloth with flourishes a'la bandanna style. The heart is paper-cloth zig-zagged on the canvas with the vintage text words glued on. There is a little bit of batting in between the canvas and backing to give it that puffy quilt feel. It's really small though, about 4" x 4". It was really fun to make, I'm already planning my next one!
