Live Radiant ~

This quilted journey began with a favorite thermofax screen from Margaret Applin's Etsy shop.
and really, what could be called 'simple math' --- ala journal quilting style.
 Add a beautiful screen print on fabric~~~

 
Add a scrap or two, or three.  Or take it away...   
 Add a word.

or two.
Adding bits of leftover strips of patchwork.

add a fun flower...
quilting fun...

Add.  Subtract.  Quilt.
Simple math. 
I adore the KISS method:  Keep  ISimply Slanted!

Absolutely beautiful - love the colors and the open lettering for Radiant! After all, we must be "open" in order to become "radiant", right? Have a great weekend!!!

Leslie McNeil of MarveLes Art Studios said...

Agreed! We must be open - and I love that description! Absolutely!
Thank you Teresa! You too, have a fabulous weekend...!

Radiant. The all red in the face from yesterday's journal attempt is probably not quite what you, nor I, have in mind. You make this look wonderfully easy and it is probably from 'forcing' the creative buds that makes for 'not so radiant'. But today I'm radiating a bit more and with less 'heat'! lol I certainly appreciate your plunging along ahead and encouraging us on. Great little quiltlet! KISS, maybe I should look at my stuff with a more slanted view! LOL

Did you do your "Live" and "Radiance" words by hand or machine?

Siobhan said...

So pretty and your stitching and choice of colours is fab :)

I love M's screens, too, Holly! They are great inspiration!!! THANKS!

Leslie McNeil of MarveLes Art Studios said...

YES! Thank you Margaret!

Yes, I do all the words by machine. Sometimes I will chalk a straight line so the words are straight... but more and more, I'm skipping that, and just 'letting it be' (unperfect!). It is WAY more fun. I did start to stitch in a thread color that blended too much, and I couldn't see it... so I went over Radiant in a darker color so I could see where I was going !
