Video Prompts Begin!
Today I will begin our semi-weekly I2Q Video Prompt Challenge.
Some basic yadayada.
This video challenge speaks to making marks and motifs that can be used in future projects. These marks are your personal signature and can come to be synonymous with your work and personal style.
Specifically I will ask you to make two different kinds of stamps, craft foam stamps and glue stamps, found on pages 22 through 25 of Inspired to Quilt.
During this next week, I am going to make some cloth with the stamps I make as a result of this challenge and will share them with you in a blog post.
If you make a set of stamps and/or use these same stamps, please post images to the Quilting Arts site using the TAGS: Inspired to Quilt, Video Prompt. This is important so that we can each see what the other has done on a single page of the site. If you would like to post about your project on your personal blog, by ALL MEANS do! but leave a comment here so that folks will know to check out work blog. I will also blog summaries with links to help put these links in focus.
If you have questions about the challenge ask them in this forum, this is a central place where each of us can go, if and when questions arise.
I am going to go through chapter 2, extracting prompt ideas, in these next few challenges. If you have questions you would like me to address in future prompts, please post your comments to this post and I will address them as we proceed.
What I would like to do is to help you create a basic set of motifs and to explore how to use them before we move on to building an image and creating finished pieces.
For this particular challenge you will need:
sharpie marker, pencil, crayon
sticky back craft foam
thick white craft glue
These techniques are fully explained on pages 22 through 25 of Inspired to Quilt
Here is a tip I just learned which will help you in creating Glue Stamps: Prepare the cardboard prior to making your stamp by painting both sides with a thin layer of glue, allow to dry. This will ensure that the stamp remains flat for the life of the stamp.
so here you go:
Updated to help out with photo gallery uploads:
Go to Photo Galleries> Share your Quilt and Fiberart>On the top right you will see Upload>Click Upload>Click Specify URL. If you Choose Radio Button called Upload File> Click on "Choose File">Locate image file on you computer>Click "save". This will bring you back to the upload page>Name your image>Describe image> place tags> click Save.
The tags are the important part so that all artwork will show in a single gallery viewable by all. So use; Inspired to Quilt, Video Prompt, Your Name. That way, if you go to the shared gallery pages you can look up just one or all of these options, and will be able to view your artwork in any number of configurations. Using the tags creates an individual gallery specific to what we are trying to acheive.
