Wall Art with Arnold Grummer's Paper Quilt Class Kit

DSCN1863  
By now you should know how much I love Arnold Grummer's Papermaking Products.  So my love for this product shouldn't take you by surprise.  Art quilts are a very popular trend right now and there is no better substrate for them than Arnold Grummer's Paper Quilt Class Kit.    In the kit you get 30 pieces of  thick cardstock, that are 8" x 8" and have holes in the corners to attach them together and hang them.  The possibilities are absolutely endless.
I decided to use my kit to start making an art quilt.  So far I only have this one square done.  This is how I made it:

I started with a monoprint done with my Gelli Plate.  My Gelli Plate is 6" x 6" which makes it perfect for this project.

Then I added a layer of doodles.
DSCN1862
Then I added a layer of collage and some Washi Tape as a border.
DSCN1863
I finished it off by adding some more doodles inside the border.

Brighten Someone's Day

With "Spring in the air" the thoughts of beautiful pots filled with flowers, cut flowers and veggies from the garden and it all seems like heaven! I feel it is so important to share our loves with others in the hopes that we may spark a bit of love in someone else and brighten their day! This months Arnold Grummer's Design team project that I created is about just that! Just the look of the beautiful handmade papers that can be created from Arnold Grummer's Papermaking kits  makes this project so much more special! These little "seed gift packets" contain not only a packet of seeds surround by beautiful handmade paper but also some uplifting verses to help inspire and put some love into someones day!

1) Begin by cutting the handmade paper to a card size. and fold in half.
