Boats on the River


This piece is 5x7. The chapter 3 challege from the book The Artist's Muse is to draw inspiration from a favorite childhood book. I chose "The Boats on the River" by Marjorie Flack. I'm really pleased with how this piece came out. I used "Misty Fuse" and embossing powder to add sparkle to the waves. This technique was published in Quilting Arts magazine's online newsletter and is the brainchild of Joanna - thanks, Joanna, for such a cool technique!!!

Michelle, what a great idea. I haven't tried sparkley embossing powder. I love this postcard. Thanks for using the technique.
