*********************************************
Soooooooooooooooooo...the info on my altered art piece is:

I WAS going to alter BEEEEEEEatrice.......but, time got away from me....and I didnt want to "rush her"...she will be awesome when she is done...but, for now is a work of art in process....

Sooooooooooooooo....I had this vintage quilt piece "saved" in my stash from an antique dresden plate quilt...very loved and time-worn.....and attached it to a 12x12 canvas I purchased ( in bulk, of course!) from Michaels A&C.....The background  technique I used was based on a mixed media subscription kit I purchased from Christy Thomlinson @ ScarletLime....
she is absolutely AWESOME!!!!
I used vellum, bookpaper,paints,mod-podge,rub-ons, stickers, stamps and buttons all from my stash....seriously...the ONLY new thing here is the blank canvas!!!
I do have a few more "loved" antique quilt pieces....and will probably be making some more canvases to put in my Etsy shop StudioBeeCreations.....please keep me bookmarked in your favorites!!
**********************

whoowhoooooo...you are in for a treat!!!!...Grab your favorite beverage....put on some great music...and sit back and ENJOY!!!!

Ooh, this is all kinds of fabulous! I'm intrigued by the background technique and love the vintage quilt pieces. It's a rainbow of quilty comfort!

BTW, I met Beeeatrice and I'm quite green with altered art envy right now. I started altering her in my mind right away and had to click away. *sigh*

Cheers,
Susan
