Quilted Wall Art using Fabric Elements

Fabric Elements Quilted Wall Art


Hi everyone, I am super happy to be participating in this months challenge at Designer Crafts Connection - we are working with kits provided by Fabric Elements.

These darling kits are the creation of Rebekah Meier and here is what she has to say about them:
For those not familiar with Fabric Elements, here is a little background.  Award winning Fabric Elements™ is a culmination of my experiments, favorite materials, and techniques.  It is a collection of my stencils, tissue paper, and fabric designs with pre-packaged fiber goods – such as batting, felt, gauze, Lutradur, and many others.  The collection is designed to work together with my techniques and instructions to create endless mixed media and fiber art projects.  I love to take the ordinary – like quilt batting and interfacing – and combine them with paint, inks, and other embellishments to elevate them into something extraordinary!

I created something a little different with mine kit, here's a look.

Mixed Media Fabric Art
Instead of making one large quilted project I chose to make 4 smaller ones for a collection of wall hangings. I will have a full tutorial on this coming up later in the week with step out photos, so be sure to check back.

Quilted Mixed Media Hot Air Balloons
Each one of these little quilted pieces is 4 x 5.5 and I used random stitching on them. I also used double the amount of batting that the kit called for to give them extra dimension.

DecoArt Metallic Lustre Paints
I used a huge variety of Blue Fern Studios chipboard on this project and each piece was painted with DecoArt Metallic Lustre Cream Paints. Those things are the bomb if you have never tried them!

Blue Fern Studios Chipboard
It is super easy to blend the Metallic Lustre paints because they are so creamy.

Random sewing patterns
I used several colors of paint paint from the DecoArt Media line for the background, then stenciled on some texture using the Crackle Paste.

Chipboard with Metallic Lustre Paint
A white paint pen rounded out the project, adding accents here and there.

Of course we have a great prize up for grabs, so don't forget to head over to the Designer Crafts Connection blog and check out all the details.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a fabulous week!

  3. Anita - I love your take on the kit. These would even be fun as postcards. I am so in love with adding quilting with paper crafting techniques. I need to try your way and mess around with freeform and specialty stitches on my machine.
