What materials did you use? I used tea-dyed muslin to create the 13" x 15" base for this mixed media art quilt. I painted sections, added hand created paper collage pieces. I also made the hand sewn, puff embellishment 'blossom'. I added the battenburg lace 'flower' and vintage buttons, fiber and other beads, then machine quilted the entire piece. The back is finished with a piece of vintage fabric, hand sewn. I've attached a wood rod and antique gold chain for hanging.

What are you most proud of? The finished product, of course! :-) When starting a mixed media piece you're never sure how it'll turn out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Let yourself go! Just stay to a basic theme without trying to force yourself to a strict idea and you'll do great. Use colors you like. Use a different bug if you don't happen to like dragonflies. Use and hand cut flower if you don't have a lace piece handy. It's all about having fun and creating a mood, rather than trying to create a copy. Just have fun!
