About Me

My photo
I was 53 in June. I feel like I'm 30. I live in Cold Cold Wisconsin. But, I love it here.. I found fabric and quilting about 8 years ago.. I fell in love with it.. I also enjoy paper art.. I'm not sure how I kept my sanity before I started doing art. I found rubber stamps about 10 years ago and have gone on to anything and everything.. I have been blessed with creative talents and love to express myself in art. I have 2 children .. one girl who is 15 and a boy who is 17. My husband and I love to hunt,canoe and just enjoy the outdoors together.. We all love the outdoors and go up to northern Wisconsin as often as possible. I'm a 14 year breast cancer survivor.. you can view more of my art at http://laurakrasinskiquilts.blogspot.com www.picturetrail.com/barngirl or my teaching, lecture and vending schedule here http://laurakrasinskisartontherun.blogspot.com

I had a great time working on art yesterday.. It seems like ages ago when I had time to do any... I worked on a vintage animal deco and a true colors.. my color was green. I couldn't resist putting Kermit on a tag.

Flowers in my Garden

I have been so busy trying to get my flower garden looking nice. So my artwork has been put on hold for awhile. So I thought I would share some photos of my flowers and my garden angel.

A walk in the field

I took a walk in the field up north last weekend. It was a beautiful day and the flowers were incredible. I picked a few to bring home so I could take a picture of them. I would like to make a quilt and applique the different flowers on it. 2 weeks ago the Trilliums were in full bloom and they were gorgeous. I didn't have my camera that weekend.

Another Deco page. This one is for Heather

We all used the same image in Heathers deco.. It is really neat to see what each gal did with this photo. I had fun with this. I used a technique that I use for altering actual photos.. Sanding the photo and using watercolor paints and then I added decorative papers and whatnot...
