Urban Artifacts

I am happy to announce that my good friend, Leslie Tucker Jenison is now a fabric designer for RJR Fabrics!  Her line "Urban Artifacts" will debut at Fall Quilt Market!  I am so excited for her!  Look at these intriguing prints and colors, that are based on her surface design work. I think it's all pretty cool

Sizzix Fabi / Big Shot die cutting machine to cut all of the shapes that I do not want to cut by hand

I cut a bunch of these. Hexagons are less than 1" on the Sizzix machine

Enter a globe.  I bought it at Target, my favorite store.  I have a thing for globes, because there are so many things that you can do with them. One word 'decoupage.' I am going to cover this globe with hexagons from Leslie's line

I painted the entire globe with Gesso, the perfect primer for most of these kinds of projects.

Using Liquitex Matte Medium, I carefully placed each hexagon on the globe, one by one and making sure there was contrast between each one

Whoohoo, ready for the clear gloss
