Am Idea for a Wall hanging Quilt my art, my camera and soon some fabric

Good late Saturday afternoon to all! I just love messing around with my drawing ability, camera and photo overlays.  In the first one I created my very own fall scene using water color paper and my acrylic maker paints then I took some pictures of the completed art work and and some overlays, just has enhancing the colors and making it sharper I also added a water color over lay and loved how it turned out!! so I am planning on printing this on some jet ink fabric and making a fall wall hanging quilt!
In the pictures below I did everything almost similar but in the last photo the overlay is negative and I love how it turned out so it will be a very color Halloween quilt in the coming days.  I just love my Smart photo editor!  There are so many ideas running wildly through my mind on all that I can do and lots of ideas are quilting ideas! because I love to quilt!  I have done a few more drawings up and I will be sharing those with you too, they are fall scenes also and I plan winter and spring.  I will share step by step how each of these will come along and turn out!

Finished Wall hanging Bird Quilts for Wednesday July 31st 2013

 Good morning to everyone! I wanted to share a couple of wall hanging quilts that I have just finished.  The first at the top is from one of my own photos that I took of some Arctic Terns that we get here on the Oregon coast.  I took the photograph and did some overlays, one was my favorite which is a watercolor overlay.  Then I printed the photo on some ink jet fabric to print on and did an iron on transfer.  Next I found some great cotton quilting fat quarters to use for the quilt.  Blues were the colors I picked for this quilt and some pretty stitching to go along.  I designed how I wanted the quilt to look with no patterns and I love how the quilt came out.
In the second photo is a primitive wall hanging quilt, once again I used the ink jet fabric accept the crow was not an iron, instead I used the sew in printed fabric and I like it better than the iron on.  The crow was a graphic I found on line for free and I used cinnamon, coffee and vanilla for staining the printed out crow.  I let the staining just by picking the fabric and moving around and let it just air dry.  I added a bit of oil pastel to the top and on the crow to give it a bit more grubby look.  Both quilts are back with quilting batting and contrasting fabric.  I added buttons to both quits and I hand sew them on using quilting thread.  I pulled tabs off of soda cans to hand sew on the back of quilts for hanging.  I have lots of fun creating both quilts and I am planing doing some more quilts up.  So I have been trying to stay busy keeping my mind off of the hive outbreaks and trying to get the blood sugar levels back down, funny how quilting will take your mind off all the troubles!  I almost forgot to tell you where I got everything at Joann's the quilt quarters, buttons thread, batting and the jet ink fabrics, I also have each quilt a tiny personal touch by signing them.  In  a couple days I will share pictures of a doll/dolls I have been creating.
