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

Workshop with Katie...

I had the wonderful opportunity to take a workshop from Katie Pasquini Masopust this past weekend. It was one of the neatest workshops I have been to. You didn't need your sewing machine.. or fabric... just your right brain.
It was all about Color and Composition... and what you could use to make a quilt. Just by painting random strokes and cropping the paintings you could find a quilt in the painting... I am going to post some photos later today or tomorrow.. We also took a photo and copied it on acetate. It was then blown up to a few different sizes. You would put the copies around the first drawing in any order you wanted.. It is her technique called "cubing"... it was very cool.. I have a small flower with lines drawn through it that I want to try to do with her fractured technique. ( after I get my other 3 projects done) UGH!!!
I encourage anyone and everyone who needs a muse boost or just who loves color to take her workshops.. We had the first 2 days of a 5 day workshop...I would love to do the 3 days that are left.. that is when you get into the construction of the quilt... that would be so fun... Thanks Katie..!!! We had a blast!!!
