Mini Art Quilts

Here are three mini art quilts (9" x 9") I made last weekend. They are inspired by Donna Downey's Art Quilt Video Workshop. It is a bargain for only $5.00.

For this first one in pink I used the "House A Home" stamp set from Ippity (purchased from Maria Gurnsey), Karen Foster charms, Prima flowers, and some buttons, and baubles, and brads from my stash. Ha - this reminds me of the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy says "Lions, and tigers, and bears! Oh, my!".

For the second one I stuck to a bright orange and yellow color palette. I added a Hero Arts sentiment around the border, plus more buttons, brads, baubles, and eyelets from my stash. I also included some Hero Arts flowers and some Tim Holtz embellishments.

For this last one I used lots and lots of little goodies from my kitty stash. I stamped the border with some Technique Tuesday stamps. Aren't those fabric cats sweet? These mini art quilts are a lot of fun to make.

And finally, this is a smaller project that was stamped with Staz-On ink using Stamendous and Tim Holtz stamps. It was colored with Golden Fluid Acrylics, then I added some Prima Flower Centers and gems. The text reads "live in the moment and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering".

Thanks for looking! Comments are appreciated!
