Haven't fully recovered from our LA trip, trying to get back into the swing of things but my mind and body are still tired. Rolfe and I had a lovely time though! Easing back into paper with a piece for the "leftovers" series, made with offcuts from the + commission a few posts back. This one is called TENT CITY. ⛺😬 #ArtFromScraps#MadeFromPaper#JUDiTHandROLFE
If you love the feeling of “forever” Spring & Summer~ you can enjoy snuggling under this beautifully artistic #kwiltwithatwist all year.
This quilt is made entirely from scraps fabrics that I picked up at a local recycling shop. It is made with a myriad of fabrics, including a table cloth for a backing. All the exact fabrics are not known; therefore I would recommend professional dry cleaning.
I designed this pattern myself, based on how many 4 inch squares I had available of each of the chosen fabrics. It was super fun to design, and even more fun to sew together. I then decided to embellish the quilt, as is my artistic flair with my bags. I use scrap ribbons and lace, and I tried to embellish without covering the visual affects of the pattern.
If you look closely, there is a cute little apron pocket adorning the front, near the top, for a cell phone or remote. And on the back, toward the bottom, there is a fantastic cozy pocket to put your feet in to keep covered and warm.

Watercolor pencil demo goes rouge. I keep scraps (usually 2” strips) of “good papers” my students end up cutting down. This is Arches paper. A year (or more!) ago I cleaned off the paint palette of a student onto this piece. (Periwinkle to pink gradation). Monday I needed something to show how grounds can work in a piece and demo some watercolor pencils. Searching for a subject, 2nd period started with a heart. 3rd got the wings. 4th? I don’t remember. Then, I couldn’t leave it alone. A rarity I want to make more on a norm—doing some demo art while my students make art. I long for the chances to do this. But alas, I end up walking around to look at their progress and give suggestions (but even more so, to tell Kids to GET TO WORK!). If I’m not walking around, only 2/3s or a half really seem to use a whole period for work. That saddens me. A shout out to my students who DO the work WHILE in my room AND do their Sketchbook assignments prior to arrival. THANK YOU. You know who you are. YOU ARE THE RESON I STILL FIND THE ENERGY AND DRIVE TO TEACH. please tolerate my eyebrow lifting and expressions. I need you. I need you smile or head shake to keep me sane. #artteacherproblems#artfromscraps#tossoffart#artwithnomeaning#artfordemonstrationonly#tritesymbolshorrifyme#i ❤️myjob #goodstudentsrock#mystudentskeepmestrong
Crafting from scraps. I usually throw all my scrap paper, card stock, and yarn into various boxes by type. My kids use these in their art and own crafts almost daily. Best part? Free. These are honestly small tails of yarn that I would’ve thrown away or paper scraps that I would’ve recycled.
These two just may be my absolute favorites.
They are literally just scraps sewn together in a hot mess that turned out like works of art- textile art.
And if you think they are cute in the picture...... you should see them in person!!! And you can!!! Watch for details.
