Dreamweaver and Quietfire Design: Day One



Get ready for an amazing week of Awesome in Autumn! This week we are playing with the Quietfire Design team, and are so excited to play with their amazing images and sentiments. In their beautiful calligraphic style, their quotes and thoughts are the perfect addition to our Dreamweaver designs. Follow along with us, and leave your comments for an opportunity to win one of two wonderful prize packages:


Here's what I've created for today's post:


Last week as part of the Dreamweaver/Art Glitter collaboration, I posted the cover of one of my latest mixed media creations, my Give Thanks book. This week, I plan on sharing a couple pages from this book in order to inspire you to break out your Dreamweaver Stencils, Art Glitter, and Quietfire Design sentiments and quotes. This page is all about my mom. The photo is of her when she was about 10, so around 1936. At this age she was taking piano lessons from a neighbor, which she loved...music and art were everything to my mother. She majored in art at the University of Minnesota, where she met my dad on a blind date, and they married in 1947. She was a music teacher off and on while I was growing up, but my favorite memory is of her playing piano during the holidays with all of the family singing along.

The background of this page, like most in this book, is canvas covered, and I spritzed it with Memories Mists through the Dreamweaver Damask stencil using Copper, Teal Metallic, and Amaretto. I randomly added the Petite Fern over the page ink-stenciled in Teal Mememto ink, and embellished with Art Glitter White Gold glitter. I love the sentiment that I stamped and embossed with Stampendous Bark Embossing Powder on vellum. A thank you to Quietfire Design for providing this perfect thought..."May each treasured memory bring you comfort and peace".

By sharing your story of this artwork you have added so much more meaning. The art is stand alone beautiful. The story makes the art work complete. I love the way you did the saying and the saying itself.
I have such a hard time using the lighter papers. It turned out perfect! Thank you so much for sharing.
