Raw Edge Quilt

Here's my latest project.  I saw this on CRAZY MOM QUILTS and so loved the raw edge aspect of it!  Thank you so much amandajean for giving such clear and easy instructions.  I'm having a ball doing this.  It was so easy to make this project mine. I have all the squares just a little off, like me! It's perfect.

Just wanted to let all of you know that I am having fun doing this blog too.  I've haven't been real good at getting around to posting here at artstudio49, but it was never my intention to stay to a rigid schedule, and this is proof!


 
 
I'm ready to start quilting.  The back is a white on white Hawaiian print of ferns and Hibiscus flowers with two uneven strips of a Navy Blue background fabric with the same type of flowery print. I hope you can see the pattern of the white because it looks fabulous with the navy blue. The other great thing about this quilt is that it is entirely made up of scraps that were in my closet just sitting there doing nothing.
 
 


So I would say I'm a quarter into this project and will keep you posted on how it's going.  I haven't quilted anything this big.  I don't know what kinds of problems if any I'll run into, but will let you know.  In the mean time I will post some of my Art Journaling.  I have a lot to post. See you soon.

Your quilt is looking nice. It's great to use up some scraps you've been saving plus it feels good to curl up under a blanket you've made yourself.

Siapo Desgin Greeting Cards

What I've been up to lately!  Greeting Cards!! I have created some greeting cards that are near and dear to my heart. 

They will be available at my brand new Esty shop called AliiTasiStudio, opening at the end of September 2016.  
My greeting cards are one of a kind. There are no two exactly alike. In this series they are hand made from recycled tea bags and stamped with my hand carved stamps using archival inks.Each tea bag is a piece of signed original art.
I was inspired to create these cards by my Samoan ancestors and from living with Siapo hanging on the wall of my bedroom as a child.They are reminiscent of traditional hand pounded Siapo, also known as Tapa, made from Mulberry Tree bark.There is a long history of Polynesian Tapa in Oceania.Siapo was/is used as an element of value, given at Births, Weddings, Funerals and important ceremonial gatherings involving High Talking Chiefs and Village Chiefs..I would love to include you in the tradition of giving Siapo as a valued gif…

Grace Hudson Museum

The gift shop at Grace Hudson Museum is now carrying my AliiTasiStudio greeting cards!!! Yay for me!!!

Wikipeida has this to say; The Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah, California is adjacent to the Sun House where artist Grace Hudson and her husband resided until their deaths. The house and museum are owned and operated by the city of Ukiah.
Returning to California, Grace and John Hudson lived the rest of their days leading a modest bohemian lifestyle of collecting, traveling, field work, reading, entertaining, photography and painting based in The Sun House in Ukiah, a Craftsman-style California bungalow they designed and had built of redwood in 1911. The Hopi sun symbol was adopted by the Hudsons as their family symbol; the Sun House displays the emblem prominently over the door. John Hudson died there in 1936.
With no children of her own, Grace Hudson left The Sun House and its land to her nephew, Mark Carpenter. Carpenter preserved the house and its 30,000 collected objects fo…

To Be Organized!

My old and favorite blog, artstudio49.blogspot.com has evolved to contain my ART as a clearinghouse of sorts.  It’s what I think will keep me organized, and possibility even sane.  I have joined forces with several online artist/designer-selling platforms. 

These companies manufacture, ship, and pay the Artists/Designers an agreed upon stipend for the use of their digital files containing the artwork.

I won’t get rich or even famous but these platforms are a way to get my work out into the universe or even just the virtual universe.

First in line is Fine Art America, which I joined last year.  My art is in a state of flux and I’m giving birth to new and different kinds of art everyday.  Fine Art America is a great place to start keeping it all categorized, as you’ll see in my shop.  I have uploaded; Collage, Paintings, Photos and Digitally Altered Collage and Photos.  You can get to my shop Me at Fine Art America
Redbubble is similar to Fine Art America in that you can purchase Wall Art…
