Trying Out New Things

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Sometimes I like to do my morning walks at outdoor malls. Today, I went walking at the outdoor mall that has a Barnes and Noble store. I spent some time looking at the textile art quilting books. The walk, and the visit to the bookstore, energized me. I went home, ready to try new things.
I had never heard of the slashing technique that I saw in a book, so I did some more research on this. I decided to give it a try. It seems that I did not use enough layers of scraps, but it came out okay for my first try. I still need to wash it to see if it poofs up like the tutorials say it will.

I also tried out using the confetti technique. Mine came out very basic, but I like the layered look. It needs some embellishment, but for now, I am just interested in trying out layering fabric.

I am on some sort of path…don’t know exactly which type of path…but it is interesting.
