I like to make all kinds of quilts, from postcard to king-size. I have a Gammill longarm quilting machine, several domestic sewing machines, and also work with a Babylock Embellishing machine. In the past few years, I have tried my hand at painting with watercolors and art journaling. I also throw in a little nature photography and the occasional travel or grandchild pictures. Thanks for stopping by!

Color Wheel Flower Collage
Finished another project! I call it Color Wheel Flower.
Color Wheel Flower by Jeanne Turner McBrayer, 2014
It began as a watercolor study of the colors in my palette.
My sister thought the colors were so cheerful that she downloaded the photo from my blog and made it the background on her iPhone. I thought it could use some improvement. I cut the sections into petals and painted more papers to get a range of colors. Then I glued them onto a gallery-wrapped canvas that I had previously covered with tissue paper and a color chart from a catalog.
The last steps were to glue on some bits of colored glass, and spray with clear acrylic finish. Now the colors really sparkle!
