Blue Moon.......

Morning peeps I was asked to be a visiting artist for Gingersnap creations challenge blog for the month of October......looking forward to working with some great inspirational ladies, Ali then threw in a curved ball as they say and asked me to do the Blue Moon challenge.....this is when they have 5 Wednesdays in a month and because it only happens once in a while they call it the Blue Moon challenge.
This weeks challenge is to do something based on quilting patterns and there is a link if you require ispiration as well as templates for the quilting block patterns, now me being a numpty thought ohhhh that would look great in metal........this turned out to be a bigger project than I first imagined and it did have it a few probs. but I'm not one to give up ...lol so I continued well into Sunday night to finish it. I used gold and chocolate metal, and put some of the pieces through embossing folders, I used alchohol inks to add colour or to take colour off as the case may be.......see I'm still persivering with those inks.


Challenges
Tuesday Taggers......here comes autumn.

hi Daniele - thanks for stopping by & the encouraging words about birthdays ! Love this piece of work - I used to quilt but ran out of beds & got bogged down in projects that took weeks to finish but this is a stunning way to bring back happy memories of my quilty phase in a more managable scale - and I really enjoy metal work ! Would you mind if I have a go at something similar too ?
