finished quiltlet

This quiltlet is the creative response to- Source. If you haven't been following along, click the cow in the right sidebar and join in with the Creative Prompt Project. I've been trying to keep up with the prompts and for something extra- I've challenged myself to come up with a 12 x 12 quiltlet using my responses. Part of my personal challenge has been to use only found or recycled items from around the house and sewing room.The photos are copied on to organza. I stuck the organza to printer labels with the method mentioned here, then I sent it through the printer. Below is the response as it looks in my sketch book.
And here it has been run through the printer and color was added with inks.


The little plastic pieces are made from meat packaging trays. After washing thoroughly- you can stamp onto the meat tray, cut out a shape and put in a low oven. The plastic will shrink. Once cooled color can be added. I had forgotten about these until I went digging in the treasure chest of 'stuff'.









I used family with my source prompt as family can be the source of many things depending on the day.....

I love how your sketched heart turned out here. The colors you gave it look fabulous!

Several good ideas here. I also like the way you printed the heart and then colored it, and the meat tray thingies are a clever embellishment too.

. . . . ain't that the truth about family being the source of just about everything some days!!

Great embellishing ideas!
