Behind the Scenes…

After a new art quilt is completed, I have a Photo Shoot…

Photoshoot for “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow”

Capturing an image and downloading it into Photoshop on my computer….. and using Canon’s Studio Pro software to edit and prepare the files is the next step in creating fine art prints and cards of the Original.

Photoshop and Canon software to prepare Print files.

Once the files are ready, I individually print each print and card as needed on my Canon Pro 10 pigment ink printer, pack carefully, and then ship for delivery to each customer!

**Winter Holidays**

December has arrived here in the mountains with a blast of cold air!! Reminding us that Christmas and the Holidays are just around the corner!

It has been very busy in the Studio and here is the latest, NEW Art that has been completed! Yay! Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow” (2018)

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow (2018), 16 1/4″ x 18 1/2″, © 2018 Joni Beach. Original Art Quilt. Rayon and metallic on cotton. Raw edge appilque, free-motion quilting.

This was a fun and enjoyable piece to create…I imagined the Joy and exhilaration of flying down the hill through the fluffy, white snow with my scarf blowing in the wind! 🙂  Wheeeeee!! 

Rayon along with sparkling iridescent and metallic threads were used to free-motion stitch the sledding trails and other thread-painted details….

In the Studio…

A couple of years ago I began “playing around” with the shape of a typical Christmas ornament…experimenting to just see how I might incorporate it into a design. ?  After settling on a shape, I used it in unique ways in designing a series of art quilts…each one very different, but all using the ornament shape.

The results (so far) include 3 small art quilts, which all have a Winter holidays theme~~

Winter Wren~

Winter Wren, Rayon & metallic on cotton, 7 3/4″ x 9 1/2″, © 2013 Joni Beach. Faced-applique, beading, free-motion and dense stitch quilting.

Santa’s Night-time Trek~

And Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow~ A current project that I am now finishing.the Studio!

 

 

 Some of you have seen these photos on Instagram & Facebook. And, when I asked whether I should use Red thread or Blue, the Overwhelming answer was Blue!! 

So…..Blue it will be! 🙂

In the Studio this week, I am completing this art quilt and then plan to photograph it. The 3 Art Quilts in this series, Winter Holidays, will also be offered as a set of Art Cards in time for your Holiday Season! So stay tuned… 🙂
