Art Quilt

The other day I posted a photo of a Cedar Waxwing I took and one after messing with it in Photoshop. I then had a brain storm to print it on fabric, I had a piece of canvas that I painted with gesso and ironed stabilizer on the back for a project from about a year ago, I cut it to 8.5 x 11 and sent it through the printer. Eureka !!! I then stared to print everything in sight, photos and text. I ran out of the canvas so I turned to muslin and did a similar treatment, oh happy days it worked again with only one jam. Yes I had to go to the store for more ink. So now I have all this fabric with my images on it (kinda fun) so I need to make something out of it.
Little art quilt 18"x19"

3d nest made with timtex like a bowl. The little piece that says nest is layered with text in photoshop and printed on same fabric. Click on photo to see close up.

I made some cards out of the same image and other images made the same way shown below and some of my papercuts.

Same bird after PS and soon to be an art quilt, with a little twist on it.
