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

Bird Atcs


I joined an atc swap for something different.. Of course I couldn't do them just with paper. First I put fabric ( bird eggs) over cardstock and used gel medium to adhere it. While that was wet I added some paint and schminke powder. I burned some Lutradur and layered that with handdyed cheesecloth ( Laura Wasilowski special) and a piece of ribbon. I had a bird cigarette card so I copied it and printed it out on fabric paper and added that with a small zig zag stitch. Then I stitched down the feather and added a silver letter. And used Tsukineko inks on the edges. Everything was stitched and not glued. These small pieces were really fun to create..
