Bird on a Branch
Bird on a Branch is painted on silk chiffon. This was a great class with Ginny Eckley. After I painted this Art Quilt I thread painted to give more texture and dimension. To frame it I covered an artist canvas with red brushed cotton and centered the quilt on top. To do this type of framing I took an artist canvas and adhered the red brushed cotton over it with E-6000. Then adhered the art quilt with E-6000 to the red brushed cotton. Got the idea from Jane Dunnewold's DVD "Frame It! Easy Solutions for Framing and Finishing Art Work".
