Art Journal Simple Prompts

I’m participating in a weekly challenge on Instagram: Art Journal Simple Prompts (#ajsp52w). I’m still behind, but last week I made collages for week 38-41 in red, blue, yellow and green.
week 38
week 39
week 40
week 41
I made progress photos when I was making the green collage. I started with an acrylic background and lots of green clippings.
And these clippings were not used in my collage, so they are in my stash now for later use.

De nieuwe wending uitdaging

There’s a quilting challenge at the Dutch Quiltersgilde. This month we had to experiment with a block called Zig Zag Path. Again I started drawing a lot of variations.
After deciding which block to make I had to choose my fabric.
And here’s the finished 6 x 6 inch block, I only changed the size of the parts.

Visible mending

Some time ago I discovered visible mending on Instagram, the perfect solution for my daughter’s jeans. She works with chemicals and sometimes that results in tiny damaged spots on her jeans. So I gave it a try. First I made a woven square, you can still see the damaged spot behind the unwoven threads. This square was done in 2 different DMC colour variation threads: green for the first step and pink/purple for the weaving.
Then I added a triangle in the green colour variations.
Another triangle in the pink/purple colour variations to hide the last damaged spot.
And this is the finished mending.
I already washed her jeans a few times and the embroidery stays pretty. My daughter was so happy, she wanted me to repair her black jeans too.
This one got some woven puzzle pieces in pink, which didn’t photograph very well on the black jeans.
