Alis' Midnight Garden



I love Terri of StegArts work, it always makes me smile. So when I found out she was doing an online class on Paper Quilting I just had to sign up.

I have just finished my week one assignment and here it is ;0)
It was so much fun to do. The first part is lovely and painty and gluey and messy - just perfect. The putting it all together was a blast to see the picture take shape.

I only could find tissue paper with Stars on in Ilfracombe and as my background turned out a little dark I thought Alis' Midnight Garden would be a great title for it.
So I added a full moon to shine on the little star flowers.

I'm not sure how I will display this piece yet. I think it would look good in a frame but I will have to look around to get the right one.

Got my homework to do this weekend then look forward to the next weeks project.
Can't wait!

I just love your results.

How fun, Alis! I considered taking this class but am currently taking three others and thought another one would push me right over the edge :-) Looks like it will be a great time, though!

Mmmm, gorgeous. Great colours, and so cheerful. I love getting messy and painty these days, think I'm rebelling (a bit late I know!!!) as my mum used to hate us getting dirty, lol. Sure you're going to have loads more fun! Why do I always find out about these classes too late to join in??? *sigh*

Looks like it was good fun - it just glows with a wonderful sense of play.

oooh, Alis, your wonderful use of colours again, I do love it and the title is perfect! (the starry paper worked rather well, didn't it?).

The journals are lovely too, no wonder Roger has taken the leather-look one for himself. (tell him I got through the poetry assignment - eventually!). xxxx
