The ramblings of a Creative Crone! I consider myself to be the Grandma Moses of the Fiber Arts World as I came to the art late in life. My blog will consist of my art; art of others; an occasional book review because when not creating, I am reading; perhaps an enlightening discussion on a favorite quote...and positive discussions of politics/world affairs only!
This is the first blog for the Art Quilts Around The World I have published in quite awhile. Every other month, a theme is given by various members and I have missed the last three... "Macro", "Art Noveau", and "Song Title". I hope I can make up at least some of them, but meanwhile...I do have the newest theme..."Bollywood"! I had a great time making this little quilt..and here is is and how I did it.
First, coincidentally, I occasionally do a Facebook entry with "Journal 52" and a few weeks ago, the topic was "Creative Hands"...thus my entry.

So I decided to do my "Bollywood" in the style of the popular Henna tattoos...but this drawing was not large enough for my quilt...thus I drew an extension!

Then downloaded both to my computer...did a little editing with color...making sepia color copies of both.
Then I printed both off onto fabric, put fusing on the back, ironed them together to a hot pink background, added borders, quilted and add bangles with beading....another popular Bollywood fashion.
