"Jocul"- mixed media art

hello again!
Bun gasit din nou.

After a week that I was marked by a tragic event and of which unfortunately I have not returned yet, trying to balance atmosphere a little and show you what I worked on recently.
Dupa o saptamana in care am fost marcata de un anumit eveniment tragic si din care, din pacate nu mi-am revenit inca, incerc sa echilibrez putin atmosfera si sa va arat ce am lucrat in ultima vreme.

I made a wall hanging - because, I focused on this type of quilt- the inspiration was a postcard from 1920-1930 which shows two girls playing a simple and innocent game.

As a working technique I used fusible and free painting with acrylic paints, paint I used for child heads, arms and legs, and very little paint for the sky. Ca tehnica de lucru am folosit fusible si pictura libera cu vopsele acrilice, vopsele pe care le-am folosit pentru capetele copiilor , brate si picioare; foarte putin am folosit si la fondul cerului.
In rest , fusible si free motion.

its size is 23 X23" and a loaded border with vintage flower. I choose to not use binding forthis reason but the edge had "closed" so I  applied "no binding binding" technique (border hidden behind the quilt) a technique that i learned at the mixed media art course. 

Soon I will present a complete tutorial of this technique, so it will expose below, phases of work and mode of attachment of the binding site, without being seen from the front
Are dimensiunea de 23 X23 si un border destul de incarcat, cu imprimeu florar , vintage, la care nu am folosit bindingul (tocmai pt ca borderul e astfel imprimat caci nu mai este nevoie de binding); insa marginea trebuia "inchisa" asa ca am aplicat tehnica "no binding binding" border ascuns pe dosul quiltului, tehnica invatata la cursul de mixed media art.
Cat pot de curand voi prezenta un tutorial complet al acestei tehnici; pana atunci va expun mai jos , fazele de lucru si modul de atasare al binding-ului, fara a fi vazut din fata:

Attach strips of cotton quilt and sewing their face
Atasare fasii de bumbac pe fata quiltului si coaserea lor

 this is how the binding looks from the back of the quilt; it is caught with needles for the next final phase: sewing hidden point.
Asa arata binding-ul pe spatele quiltului; este prins cu ace pentru ca urmeaza faza finala: cusutul cu punct ascuns .

The edge of the quilt , in front; note that binding site is not seen, is hidden
Asa arata marginea quiltului , din fata; observati ca binding-ul nu se vede, e ascuns.

The binding's sewn on the back 
BInding-ul cusut pe spate cu punct ascuns
Fused for dresses girls
Fused pentru rochitele fetitelor
 Painting with acrylic paints for heads

Pictura cu vopsele acrilice pentru capete

Produsul final

Postal card from the last century, a picture full of innocence and purity, a simple but dynamic scene .. love vintage scene:)

Cardul postal din secolul trecut, o imagine inocenta si plina de puritate, o scena simpla dar dinamica ..ador scenele vintage:)

I hope you will like it:) .. I like very much and once someone asked me if I like mixed media art ... yes, Theodora, I think that I started to  love it ... all I need  is time.
 Sper sa va placa :)..mie imi place tare mult si odata cineva ma intreba daca imi place mixed media art...da, Teodora, incep sa cred ca imi place si inca mult...ramane sa am timp sa pot crea asa cum imi doresc.

As I said, soon a tutorial with  no - binding and binding tehcnique and maybe with the butterfly from the sold quilt  "evening beauty"
Happy sewing all, sunny  and beautiful days, full of inspiration for everyone!

See you soon!
Asa cum spuneam , pe curand un tutorial cu tehnica no - binding binding si poate si cu fluturasul de la quiltul vandut " evening beauty "
Spor la cusut tuturor, zile insorite si frumoase , pline de inspiratie pentru fiecare!
Pe curand!

Am facut un wall hanging - caci m-am axat pe aceasta forma de quilt- dupa un card de prin anii 1920-1930 care infatiseaza doua fetite jucandu-se intr-un joc simplu si inocent.
