Transcript:

>> "CREATIVE LIVING," UTILIZING TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY
WITH THE BEST OF THE PAST TO BRING YOU INNOVATIVE IDEAS
AND UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION FOR CREATIVE LIFESTYLES
IN TODAY'S ACTIVE WORLD, WITH YOUR HOST, SHERYL BORDEN.
>> THANKS FOR JOINING ME TODAY FOR "CREATIVE LIVING."
WE'RE GOING TO LEARN TO CREATE LANDSCAPE DESIGNS ON QUILTS
AND MAKE A WALL HANGING THAT FEATURES QUOTATIONS OR
PICTURES.
ONE OF MY GUESTS TODAY IS KAREN ECKMEIER, AND SHE'S A QUILTER
AND AN AUTHOR, AND HER COMPANY IS CALLED
THE QUILTED LIZARD.
KAREN WILL SHOW HOW TO ROTARY CUT SEVERAL LAYERS OF FABRIC
STRIPS IN A FREE MOTION TECHNIQUE.
AND, AS SHE EXPLAINS, THIS CAN "ACCIDENTALLY" CREATE
A BEACH SCENE ON A QUILT.
IT'S AMAZING TO WATCH.
SHE'S FROM KENT, CONNECTICUT, AND HER PATTERN FOR THIS
TECHNIQUE IS CALLED "ACCIDENTAL LANDSCAPES."
THE FIRST GUEST ON THE SHOW TODAY IS THERESA CIFALI AND
SHE'S A MIXED MEDIA ARTIST FROM VALHALLA, NEW YORK.
THERESA IS GOING TO SHOW HOW TO MAKE DIMENSIONAL CANVASES
USING A GEL MEDIUM AND A HEAVY BODIED ACRYLIC PAINT.
BY ADDING A QUOTE OR A PICTURE,
YOU'LL SEE HOW IT BECOMES A GORGEOUS PIECE OF HOME DÉCOR.
HER COMPANY IS THE ALTERED CANVAS.
THERESA, I KNOW YOU'RE A CRAFT DESIGNER, AND I KNOW,
FROM LOOKING AT SOME OF THE THINGS THAT YOU BROUGHT,
YOU HAD TO REALLY USE YOUR IMAGINATION TO COME UP WITH
SOME OF THE TEXTURES THAT YOU'VE ADDED.
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE YOU WANT TO DO THAT?
>> WELL, UH...
I THINK THE PROBLEM IS MY BRAIN IS ALWAYS GOING...
FASTER THAN...MY MOUTH.
>> [LAUGHS] >> AND, UM...AND OTHER THINGS,
SO I'M ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW AND EXCITING THINGS TO PLAY
WITH, AND "OH, CAN I DO THIS?"
OR "WILL THAT WORK?"
SO, PART OF BEING-- >> SO YOU EXPERIMENT, DON'T YOU?
>> EXPERIMENTING IS VERY IMPORTANT.
UM, SO, THE TIMES THAT I MAKE MY FAVORITE THINGS,
AND LEARN TO--NEW TECHNIQUES IS THE TIMES THAT I TAKE JUST
TO PLAY.
>> TO PLAY, UH-HUH.
>> VERY IMPORTANT PART.
>> I'VE HEARD OTHER DESIGNERS SAY THE WORD PLAY.
>> OH, YEAH.
>> AND YOU HAVE TO ENJOY WHAT YOU'RE DOING, OR IT'S NOT--
>> ABSOLUTELY.
>> IT'S WORK.
THIS LOOKS LIKE MESH, OR METAL, OR...
>> IT IS!
>> IS THAT WHAT IT IS?
>> IT IS, IT IS MESH.
SO, THIS IS A FINER MESH OVER HERE.
>> OH, I COULDN'T EVEN SEE THAT ONE.
>> THIS IS SANDPAPER.
SO WHAT I WANT TO DO IS JUST KIND OF CREATE, AND BUILD
TEXTURE ON THE CANVAS, JUST TO MAKE IT LOOK
INTERESTING.
AND THEN WHAT YOU ADD TO IT TO MAKE IT A PIECE OF HOME DECOR
IS ENTIRELY UP TO YOU.
>> OKAY.
>> THIS IS JUST...
SOMETHING I TRY TO REMEMBER EVERY DAY TO BE GRATEFUL...AND,
UM, THAT I GET TO DO WHAT I LOVE FOR A LIVING.
>> AND YOU CERTAINLY DO NICE WORK, TOO.
>> THANK YOU!
>> OH, VELLUM! I LOVE VELLUM.
>> OF COURSE.
WE--WE LOVE VELLUM, TOO, BECAUSE I REALLY WANTED TO
BE ABLE TO SEE THE-- >> THE COLOR THROUGH COLOR--
>> THE COLOR THROUGH IT.
UM, AND WE JUST ADDED A PHOTO.
THIS IS JUST DIFFERENT TYPES OF HANDMADE PAPERS.
I HAVE--I TOLD YOU, UM, I'VE MENTIONED BEFORE
THAT I HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A PAPER FETISH...
A STASH, INCLUDING THE BIG SHEETS OF ALL
DIFFERENT KINDS OF HANDMADE PAPERS.
AND IT'S SO INTERESTING, AND THE TEXTURE'S INTERESTING.
>> SO YOU JUST TORE IT?
IS THAT WHAT YOU DID?
>> TORE IT. THIS HERE IS JUST TISSUE PAPER, AND HERE,
TISSUE PAPER-- >> SO, YOU JUST KIND OF PUT IT
NICELY.
>> WITH YOUR GEL MEDIUMS AND BUILD IT UP.
>> AND YOU'RE GOING TO SHOW US SOME OF THOSE GEL MEDIUMS.
>> I AM RIGHT NOW.
>> THIS IS WHAT WE'RE GOING TO MAKE, ISN'T IT?
>> THAT'S WHAT WE'RE DOING TODAY.
>> WOW.
>> THIS IS--THIS IS A LOT OF FUN...TO ME.
THIS IS USING GEL MEDIUMS TO CREATE TEXTURE IN A CANVAS.
>> AND...THIS TOO?
>> THAT'S ALSO A GEL MEDIUM; IT'S A CRACKLE GEL MEDIUM.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND, UM...
LET ME SHOW YOU-- >> EVERY ONE'S DIFFERENT, I BET,
TOO, ISN'T IT?
>> EVERY--EVERY--TEX-- EVERY MEDIUM IS DIFFERENT.
UM, A GEL MEDIUM, BASICALLY, IF YOU WANT TO THINK ABOUT IT,
IT'S, UM, KIND OF LIKE PAINT--A COLORLESS PAINT.
REALLY, IS ALL IT IS.
>> AND IT'S THICK.
IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S DIFFERENT THICKNESSES.
>> THERE A LOT OF DIFFERENT TH--THICKNESSES.
THE VISCOSITY, IT DEPENDS ON WHAT IT IS.
>> OH.
>> THIS IS A...
THIS IS A TAR GEL, ACTUALLY.
THIS ONE IS VERY...RUNNY.
>> MORE LIKE PASTE, UH-HUH.
>> UM, SO...
AND THERE ARE DIFFERENT THICKNESSES--
>> THIS ONE IS A GRANULAR GEL, AND YOU CAN SEE IT'S JUST KIND--
>> WELL, THEY'RE TEXTURED.
AND WHAT'S REALLY-- WHAT THEY'RE USED FOR IS TO
CHANGE THE PROPERTIES OF YOUR ACRYLIC PAINTS.
>> OH.
>> AND I'VE BROUGHT...
UM, HEAVY BODIED ACRYLICS WITH--WITH ME TODAY,
UM, THAT YOU COULD EITHER MIX IN, OR YOU CAN PAINT OVER;
AND WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO DO A--A DEMONSTRATION OF HOW YOU
WOULD PAINT OVER.
>> OH, OKAY.
SO WE MIX IN OR PAINT OVER.
>> MIX IN OR PAINT OVER.
SO, IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO CHANGE THE CONSISTENCY TO BUILD
TEXTURE, AND GET CERTAIN EFFECTS,
THAT'S WHEN YOU START PLAYING WITH THE DIFFERENT MEDIUMS.
>> OKAY.
>> SO, THIS IS...
>> DO YOU HAVE TO GESSO THESE, OR DO THEY--THIS IS HOW--
THIS IS HOW YOU BUY THEM?
>> THIS IS JUST YOUR--A REGULAR STRETCHED CANVAS.
I'VE DONE NOTHING TO PREP THE SURFACE AT ALL.
>> OKAY.
>> UM, AND--AND ALL YOU'RE GOING TO DO IS--
>> YOU'RE USING THE CRACKLE PASTE.
>> THIS IS THE CRACKLE.
I'M GOING TO START WITH THE CRACKLE.
>> IS--IS THAT THE ONE YOU USED HERE?
>> YES, IT IS.
>> OKAY, THAT'S WHAT CREATES THIS.
>> AND PEOPLE TEND TO GET VERY FRUSTRATED WITH CRACKLES,
BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, I'VE HAD PEOPLE TELL ME "I'VE TRIED, AND
TRIED, AND I CAN NEVER GET A CRACKLE."
AND THE--WITH CRACKLE, YOU NEED PATIENCE,
YOU NEED PATIENCE.
>> OH, OKAY. I'M GLAD YOU FOREWARNED US.
>> [CHUCKLES] AND I'M NOT A PATIENT PERSON,
SO I ALWAYS HAVE, LIKE, MORE THAN ONE PROJECT TO WORK
ON, BECAUSE I KNOW I'M GOING TO HAVE TO LEAVE THIS.
>> UH-HUH.
>> BUT THE THICKER YOU PUT IT ON, THE MORE OF A CRACKLE YOU'RE
GOING TO GET.
IF I PUT A REALLY THIN COAT ON THIS, IT'S...
IT'S NOT GOING TO CRACKLE VERY MUCH.
SO, YOU'RE GOING TO GET A NICE REALLY, REALLY DEEP CRACKLE
WITH--WITH, UM...WITH THIS IF YOU PUT IT ON NICE AND THICK,
AND THEN YOU REALLY, REALLY, LEAVE IT FOR 24 HOURS.
>> DO YOU--DO YOU EVER, LIKE, SKETCH THIS OUT? LIKE--
>> NO.
>> I'M JUST THINKING OF THIS.
>> COMPLETELY FREEFORM.
>> JUST FREEFORM, OKAY.
>> JUST KIND OF GO WITH IT.
AND, UM...WHATEVER COMES UP WITH, THEN THAT GETS KIND OF--
>> THAT'S WHAT YOU WORK WITH.
>> THAT'S WHAT I WORK WITH.
>> MM-HMM.
>> THIS IS A COARSE PUMICE GEL.
IT'S KIND OF LIKE A CEMENT.
SO, I'M JUST GOING TO STICK A LITTLE BIT OVER HERE--
>> LOOKS LIKE PAPER FIBERS, DOESN'T IT? IT'S KIND OF
FIBERY-LOOKING.
>> THIS ONE ACTUALLY IS MORE LIKE A CEMENT.
CAN YOU HEAR THAT SCRAPING?
>> IT DOES SOUND LIKE IT.
>> IT'S--IT'S KIND OF ALMOST LIKE CONCRETE-ISH.
>> AND I NOTICE YOU LEFT A LITTLE HOLE.
IS THAT INTENTIONAL?
>> NOPE, WHATEVER COMES UP.
IF I DIDN'T LIKE IT, I COULD JUST GO BACK IN.
YOU HAVE SOME TIME TO PLAY.
THESE WILL TAKE A WHILE TO DRY.
>> HOW L--HOW LONG APPROXIMATELY?
>> I LEAVE THEM DEPENDING HOW THICK YOU MAKE THEM.
THE THICKER YOU BUILD IT UP, THE LONGER IT'S GOING TO TAKE TO
DRY. IF YOU PUT A REALLY THIN COAT OF THIS ON, IT COULD DRY IN
A COUPLE HOURS.
BUT IF YOU PUT IT ON REALLY THICK, ESPECIALLY LIKE THE WAY
IT IS IN THE--IN THIS EXAMPLE...
>> UH-HUH.
>> IT--IT COULD TAKE-- >> MAYBE OVERNIGHT.
>> OVERNIGHT.
>> AND YOU WORK ON SOMETHING ELSE.
>> THIS IS A FIBER PASTE, THIS IS MY--MORE LIKE A--
UM...THE TEXTURE OF PULP.
AND WHAT'S REALLY COOL, AND THE REASON WHY I LIKE TO USE
THE DIFFERENT MEDIUMS IS BECAUSE WHEN I PAINT OVER THEM,
THE PAINT WILL ADHERE A DIFFERENT WAY.
>> DIFFERENTLY, UH-HUH.
>> TO EACH TECHNIQUE, AND THEN THIS ONE HERE IS GRANULAR,
AND IT'S A LITTLE BIT MORE CLEAR.
>> OH, YOU CAN HEAR IT.
>> AND IT'S JUST GOT A LITTLE GRAININESS IN THERE. KIND OF
LOOKS LIKE COTTAGE CHEESE, BUT IT CERTAINLY DOESN'T FEEL
LIKE IT IF YOU WERE TO TOUCH IT. I CAN TELL YOU THAT MUCH.
YOU DEFINITELY DON'T WANT TO EAT THAT, EITHER.
>> OKAY.
>> UM, SO YOU'RE JUST GOING TO LEAVE IT; LET IT KIND OF SIT
OVERNIGHT.
I'M GOING TO PUT IT OVER HERE.
>> SO WE WON'T LAY OUR HANDS IN IT.
>> AND WHEN YOU LET IT DRY, AND HERE'S WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT;
THE CRACKLE.
YOU CAN SEE HOW DEEP, BECAUSE I PUT IT ON REALLY,
REALLY THICK.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND, UM...
>> AND TELL US WHAT THIS ONE IS.
>> THIS IS THE FIBER.
>> THIS IS THE FIBER.
>> THIS IS THE CLEAR GRANULAR JOB.
>> THIS IS THE PUMICE.
>> THE, LIKE, CONCRETE KIND OF, UH-HUH.
>> AND THEN, OF COURSE, THE CRACKLE.
>> WELL-- >> AND REALLY, WHAT YOU'RE GOING
TO DO FROM THAT POINT IS; THESE ARE HEAVY BODIED ACRYLICS,
AND, UM-- >> AND DO THEY ALWAYS COME IN
TUBES? I HAVE SOME ACRYLICS THAT ARE IN LITTLE...UH--
>> THE LITTLE-- THOSE ARE FLUID ACRYLICS.
>> OKAY.
>> AND THOSE ARE DIFFERENT, THE, UM...
THESE ARE A LOT THICKER.
YOU KNOW, YOUR FLUID ACRYLICS, IF YOU WERE TO TURN THE PLATE...
THEY'RE GOING TO START TO DRIP ALL OVER THE PLACE.
THESE ARE GOING TO KIND OF STAY ON THERE.
>> I SEE. OKAY.
>> [LAUGHS] BUT YOU CAN DEFINITELY USE
THEM, IF YOU CAN MAKE YOUR FLUID ACRY--ACRYLICS THICKER BY
MIXING THEM INTO-- >> THAT'S RIGHT, YOU SAID WE--
>> SO YOU TAKE THEM OUT, PUT THEM ON A PALLET.
I DON'T BUY PALLET PAPER; I'M BY NO MEANS A FINE ARTIST
AT ALL.
I JUST LIKE TO PLAY.
>> [LAUGHS] >> SO, UM...SO REALLY I JUST
USE PAPER PLATES ALL THE TIME, I JUST FIND IT'S CHEAPEST.
AND THEN I JUST-- THIS IS THE ONLY THING I DON'T
SKIMP OUT ON; IS GOOD BRUSHES, BECAUSE YOU--
>> THEY'RE AN EXPENSIVE-- BUT THEY ARE AN INVESTMENT,
AREN'T THEY?
>> THEY ARE, BECAUSE YOU-- WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU BUY CHEAP
BRUSHES, AND THEN YOU END UP WITH, LIKE, LITTLE PIECES OF
BRUSHES IN YOUR WORK AND THAT JUST NEVER--NEVER WORKS.
SO I'M GOING TO WORK WITH WATER, AND THE FIRST THING
I'M GOING TO DO IS I'M GOING TO START WITH A--ANY LIGHT COLOR
THAT I WANT, AND IF I-- AND I'M JUST GOING TO MIX THEM,
KIND OF IN THE MIDDLE; MAKE THEM A MESS, MAYBE BRING
SOME WHITE IN THERE.
AND THEN I'M JUST GOING TO KIND OF GIVE THIS, LIKE, A WASH.
>> MM-HMM.
>> JUST LIKE THIS, GO OVER THE WHOLE THING.
>> MM-HMM.
>> MAYBE, AS I GET INTO SOME OF THE DARKER COLORS,
I MIGHT WANT TO-- AND YOU HAVE TO WORK YOUR BRUSH
IN THERE, AND THIS IS WHY YOU NEED A GOOD QUALITY BRUSH.
YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO WORK-- THERE'S ALL SORTS OF GROOVES
AND CREVICES IN THERE, SO YOU REALLY HAVE TO WORK YOUR
BRUSH IN.
>> I SEE.
>> AND WORK REALLY HARD-- >> I LIKE WHEN THE DIFFERENT
COLORS KIND OF BLEED IN THERE.
>> OH, ME, TOO, I-- BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW.
IT'S ALWAYS A SURPRISE, AND I LIKE SURPRISES.
SURPRISES ARE GOOD.
SO, YOU CAN SEE IT LOOKS A LITTLE DIFFERENT,
IT LOOKS A LITTLE BIT MORE MUTED HERE THAN IT DOES OVER HERE.
AND THEN, OVER THE FIBER PASTE, YOU'VE GOT THAT KIND OF...
EFFECT.
>> HMM!
>> BUT WHAT'S REALLY COOL ABOUT, UM...YOUR--YOUR CRACKLE,
AND I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU-- >> IT'S SO PRETTY. I LIKE
THE CRACKLE.
>> SO DO I.
I--I--WAS VERY PLEASANTLY PLEASED THE FIRST TIME I USED
THIS TO GET A REALLY DECENT CRACKLE,
SO I WAS--I WAS LIKE "YAY!"
>> IT WORKED.
>> IT WORKS!
[LAUGHS] IT'S A LOT OF EFFORT TO PUT
IN FOR, UM...
LITTLE RETURN, YOU KNOW?
WE'RE GOING TO HAVE ALL THIS WET STUFF OVER HERE.
SO NOW-- >> OH, NOW WE'RE READY TO ADD
OUR...
>> NOW WE'RE READY.
>> ...EMBELLISHMENTS.
>> SO NOW, HERE WE'VE GOT-- AND I DIDN'T REALLY ADD A LOT
TO IT, I'VE GOT THIS-- THIS CANVAS, THIS IS MY BASE
COLOR.
UM, I'VE PUT A WASH OVER THIS, AND YOU CAN SEE HOW GOOD THIS
CRACKLE IS.
I DID THIS OVER A WEEK AGO, AND, LIKE, IT'S STILL CRACKLING.
>> OH, AND THEY'RE STILL-- THESE SWIPES ARE N--ARE NEW
CRACKS?
>> THEY'RE NEW CRACKS, THEY'RE NEW CRACKS. SO, I'M ACTUALLY
GOING TO TAKE THE TIME TO SHOW YOU A REALLY--
THIS IS JUST VERY FUN.
I'M GOING TO TAKE-- I DO MY CRACKLE LIGHT...
FIRST, AND THEN I WANT TO ADD A LOT OF WATER TO A VERY DARK
COLOR, ALMOST LIKE YOU'RE GOING TO
MAKE IT WATERY.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND WE'RE GOING TO DO WHAT'S CALLED A WASH. THIS IS A WASH.
YOU CAN MAKE IT AS THIN OR AS THICK AS YOU WANT, AND THEN
YOU'RE GOING TO BRUSH IT ON, AND I'M GOING TO BRUSH IT HERE
EVERYWHERE I SEE THOSE WHITE CRACKS...
>> UH-HUH.
>> BECAUSE THE WATER, THEN, WILL GO INTO THOSE CREVICES...
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND THEN YOU JUST WIPE OFF.
>> OH, LIKE FURNITURE REFINISHING ON THIS.
>> EXACTLY.
AND IT WILL DARKEN UP...
ALL THOSE CRACKS TO MAKE THEM MORE PRONOUNCED.
>> OH, I LIKE THAT.
>> THEY STAND OUT A LOT MORE THAN SOME OF THESE OTHER ONES
ARE.
AND THEN IT'S ALL YOU'RE GOING TO DO, AND THEN YOU CAN GO--
>> SO DO YOU SEAL IT WITH ANY TYPE OF, UM--
>> I DON'T, BUT YOU--YOU CAN USE, UM, IF YOU WANTED TO,
BUT I DON'T GENERALLY SEAL MINE.
I LEAVE THEM AND THE COLORS REALLY JUST LAST VERY WELL.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND THEN, YOU KNOW, YOU JUST WANT TO MAKE--MAYBE
GO IN, AND, LIKE, GIVE THIS A LITTLE BIT OF TEXTURE,
JUST TO ADD, YOU KNOW, IN THOSE PLACES SO,
FROM, LIKE, A DISTANCE.
>> I THINK I WOULD HAVE A TENDENCY TO OVERWORK IT.
IS THAT EVER A PROBLEM?
>> OH, YEAH, YOU CAN DEFINITELY GO TO TOWN, BUT THE BEAUTIFUL
PART ABOUT PAINT IS YOU LET IT DRY, AND THEN YOU COME BACK TO
IT, AND YOU CAN FIX ALL THOSE THINGS.
>> OH, GOOD.
>> YOU JUST GO RIGHT BACK AND YOU JUST PAINT RIGHT OVER IT
AGAIN. OH, I--I DIDN'T LIKE THAT; I LIKED THAT.
>> UH-HUH, OR I PUT TOO MUCH.
>> I PUT TOO MUCH.
AND THEN YOU CAN JUST GO BACK AND JUST ADD, YOU KNOW--
SO YOU HAVE THOSE SHADOWS AND HIGHLIGHTS.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND THEN YOU CAN SEE THOSE-- THE CONTOURING GOING ON IN
THERE.
>> AND YOU'RE PAINTING UPSIDE DOWN. UH-HUH. THAT'S GOOD.
>> I DO LOTS OF THINGS UPSIDE DOWN. IT COMES FROM MY TEACHING
DAYS.
I USED TO TEACH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, AND EV--
YOU HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING UPSIDE DOWN.
[LAUGHTER] SO, JUST--THAT'S ALL YOU REALLY
HAVE TO DO.
>> AND THEN, LIKE, YOUR--THE-- THE SAYING THAT YOU TORE OUT,
HOW DO YOU ATTACH THAT?
WITH WHAT TYPE-- >> SO THIS IS JUST A COPY PAPER
AGAIN, PRINTED, AND, AGAIN, YOU WANT TO USE TONER COPIES,
BECAUSE IF YOU USE INK JET, IT'S GOING TO RUN--
>> RIGHT, THAT'S RIGHT.
>> THE MINUTE YOU ADD ANY MOISTURE TO IT,
AND I JUST USED-- I JUST DARKENED UP THE EDGES
AND I USED A REGULAR GEL MAT.
NOW, WHAT PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT GEL MEDIUMS--
THIS CONSISTENCY, THIS COMES IN A HEAVY BODIED,
A LIGHT, AND IT COMES IN A JAR.
THIS ACTUALLY IS LIKE THE WORLD'S BEST PASTE.
I DON'T--I USE THIS FOR GLUE ALL THE TIME.
MOST PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE THAT-- THAT THESE GEL MEDIUMS ARE
EXCELLENT ADHESIVES.
>> I DIDN'T KNOW THAT.
I THOUGHT THEY WERE JUST FOR BUILDING TEXTURES SO--UH-HUH.
>> BRUSH IT ON THE BACK.
NOW, MY PAPER, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN SEE
THAT, IS GOING TO START TO CRAWL,
AND THAT'S NORMAL, IT HAPPENS ANY TIME
YOU INTRODUCE ANYTHING THAT HAS MOISTURE IN IT.
>> LIQUIDS TO...PAPER.
>> TO PAPER, THAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.
AND, SO, YOU KNOW, THEN YOU HAVE THAT COMBATIVE--
YOU HAVE TO COMBAT, LIKE, THE CRAWLING, AND IS IT GOING
TO STAY UP?
AND I ALWAYS CHEAT WHEN I'M DOING STUFF LIKE THIS.
I KIND OF RUB IT IN, THEN I'LL PUT A PIECE OF WAX
PAPER OVER IT, AND THROW A COUPLE BOOKS
ON TOP, AND THEN, LEAVE IT.
>> LET IT SET OVERNIGHT-- >> LET IT SET FOR A FEW HOURS,
AND IT--AND IT'LL WORK JUST FINE.
>> WELL, I'LL BE. SO, THAT WAS THE GEL MEDIUM THAT
YOU ATTACHED THAT WITH.
>> THAT'S EVERYTHING.
AND I DIDN'T EVEN GET THAT DIRTY.
>> NO, YOU DIDN'T.
YOU DID WELL!
>> [LAUGHS] THANKS.
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH, THERESA, FOR SHOWING US HOW TO ADD THESE.
>> MY PLEASURE.
>> KAREN, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.
IT'S SUCH A PLEASURE TO MEET YOU, I'VE ENJOYED LOOKING
THROUGH YOUR WONDERFUL BOOKS AND OOH-ING AND AHH-ING OVER
THE PATTERNS.
SO, YOU'VE BEEN DOING QUILTING AND QUILT PROJECTS A LONG TIME,
HAVEN'T YOU?
>> YEAH, IT'S ABOUT 24 YEARS I'VE BEEN QUILTING IN--
AND...UM...THESE ACCIDENTAL LANDSCAPES HAVE COME UPON ME
ACCIDENTALLY, RECENTLY.
>> AND THAT'S WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY; I'VE HAD LOTS OF
WONDERFUL QUILT GUESTS ON, BUT EVERYTHING SEEMS SO EXACT.
SO, WHEN YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING TO DO SOMETHING CALLED
"ACCIDENTAL" PIECING, I THOUGHT, "THIS MAY BE THE ONE
I CAN REALLY DO."
>> YEAH.
>> AND YOU--THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE TALKING--THIS IS CALLED
BEACHES.
>> THIS IS BEACHES.
MM-HMM, THIS IS THE ONE WE'RE GOING TO DO TODAY, AND,
YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY, "ACCIDENTAL LANDSCAPES;
IT'S NOT TWO WORDS THAT ARE NORMALLY PUT TOGETHER."
AND, SO WHAT'S--WHAT WE'VE DONE IS WE'VE CAREFULLY--
>> NOW, TH--MAYBE FIRST TELL ME WHAT PART OF THIS--
HOW DO YOU REFER TO THIS AS BEING ACCIDENTAL?
IT LOOKS VERY PLANNED TO ME.
>> WELL, THAT'S WHAT I WAS GETTING TO. I CAREFULLY FIGURE
OUT ALL THE COLORS AND THE-- THE PROPORTIONS AND VALUES...
>> OH.
>> ...SO THAT WHEN YOU GO TO CUT YOUR STRIPS,
WHICH ARE BEING DONE FREEFORM, THEY ACCIDENTALLY,
AND I PROMISE, GO TOGETHER, UM, TO MAKE A LANDSCAPE.
>> AND THIS IS THE PATTERN OF THE EXACT ONE WE'RE GOING TO
USE, BUT THERE'S LOTS OF OTHER "ACCIDENTAL LANDSCAPES" IN YOUR
BOOK.
>> RIGHT, THIS IS THE BASIC CONCEPT.
>> YOU REALLY GET INVOLVED IN IT, THERE'S LOTS OF THINGS TO
DO. SO, YOU'RE RIGHT, THIS IS WHAT WE...
>> MM-HMM.
>> THIS IS WHERE YOU START.
>> THIS IS WHERE WE START.
IT'S ALWAYS GREAT TO START WHATEVER LANDSCAPE YOU'RE DOING
WITH A GREAT SKY, SOMETHING THAT'S FUN-LOOKING.
>> IS THIS PATTERN PERFECT OR WHAT?
>> YEAH, IS THAT GREAT?
AND THEN FOR OUR WATER, WE'RE GOING TO DO A DARK,
A MEDIUM, AND A LIGHT STRIP OF BLUE, AND THEN FOR SANDS,
I DO 11 DIFFERENT SAND FABRICS AND THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE BEACH
FABRICS, BUT IF THEY ARE, THAT'S--THAT'S FINE.
>> OH, AND THIS IS GRASS.
>> YEAH.
UM...BUT THE IDEA IS THAT WE'RE GOING TO START WITH
THIS, UM...RECTANGLE THAT'S ABOUT THE SAME WIDTH
AS OUR SKY.
>> IS THAT THE BOTTOM OR...?
>> IT'S WHATEVER; YOU'LL SEE.
IT'S GOING TO BE ANY OLD ORDER.
>> SEE, I'M SO USED TO PLANNING EVERYTHING OUT.
>> YOU CAN'T MAKE A MISTAKE.
AND THIS IS THE HARDEST PART FOR EVERYBODY, BECAUSE I SAY "OKAY,
FROM THOSE, UM, PIECES THAT YOU HAVE CUT, I WANT YOU TO CUT
A CURVE THAT FEELS GOOD."
>> AND ARE YOU JUST DOING ONE PIECE AT A TIME?
>> I DO BECAUSE I WANT THEM ALL TO BE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT.
OKAY? SO, I TELL PEOPLE "JUST TAKE A BREATH, AND JUST
PRACTICE A COUPLE TIMES; SEE WHAT FEELS GOOD,
AND THEN WHEN IT'S SAFE, JUST CUT A LITTLE CURVE."
AND I'M GOING TO DO SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT, A LITTLE
CURVE ON EACH ONE OF THOSE, AND A VERY GENTLE CURVE ON
THE BLUE STRIPS, AND THEN I'M GOING TO TAKE THAT,
AND I WON'T CUT THEM ALL, BUT I HAVE THEM ALL DONE.
I'M GOING TO TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN, SO THAT WE'VE GOT THAT
FACING, AND WITH MY INDEX FINGER AND MY THUMB, I'M GOING TO
FOLLOW WITH THIS IRON-- >> SO THAT YOU HAVE A CLEAN
FINISH?
>> I HAVE A NICE, CLEAN FINISH.
AND THEN YOU SEE THAT THE-- UM...THE BACK--WHOOPS,
I'VE GOT A HAIR THERE.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND...SO, AS LONG AS IT LOOKS NICE FROM THE FRONT--
>> AND THESE ARE OBVIOUSLY COTTON FABRICS.
>> YEAH, COTTON IS WHAT WE WANT TO USE.
SO, WE'RE GOING TO JUST SKIP AHEAD, AND WE'RE GOING TO SAY
WE'VE IRONED ALL THOSE STRIPS-- >> SO WE WOULD'VE DONE ALL OF--
WE WOULD'VE JUST DONE THOSE ON EVERY ONE OF THOSE STRIPS?
>> WE WOULD'VE JUST CUT AND IRONED ALL THOSE STRIPS--
>> IMAGINE WHAT YOUR STUDENTS ARE THINKING.
>> YEAH.
>> [LAUGHS] >> AND NOW, WE'VE MAGICALLY
IRONED ALL THOSE, AND THIS IS THE LAYERING PROCESS.
>> AND THIS IS THE SKY.
>> MM-HMM.
>> OKAY?
>> OKAY. SO, THEN WE START WITH OUR BLUE FABRIC,
WHICH IS OUR DISTANT HORIZON.
>> WE HAVE THREE BLUES; THAT'S THE DARK ONE.
>> AND WE'RE JUST PUTTING IT DOWN TO COVER THE BOTTOM RAW
EDGE, OKAY?
>> OKAY, BECAUSE THIS IS WHERE YOU FOLDED IT UNDER, RIGHT HERE.
GOT IT.
>> EXACTLY.
AND THEN I CAN PUT THIS DOWN.
>> OH, LOOK AT THAT CURVE!
THAT ACCIDENTAL CURVE.
>> RIGHT, RIGHT.
AND I COULD SAY, "MAYBE I DON'T LIKE WHERE IT IS,"
I CAN MOVE IT LEFT OR RIGHT.
AS LONG--IT DOESN'T MATTER WHETHER IT MATCHES WITH
THE SIZE.
>> OH, IT DOESN'T?
>> NO, WHICH IS NEAT.
AND WE DON'T WANT TO PUT IT HERE, BECAUSE WE'LL HAVE A TABLE
RUNNER THEN; WE WANT TO KEEP IT REALLY,
REALLY TIGHT, REALLY TIGHT.
AND WE'RE GOING TO DO THE SAME THING WITH OUR NEXT ONE.
AND IT'S OKAY IF THAT "ACCIDENTALLY" FALLS THERE.
AND I DON'T HAVE THESE IN AN ORDER, AND JUST TO PROVE
THAT, WE'RE JUST GOING TO KIND OF MAKE A PILE UP HERE.
>> SHUFFLE THEM UP A BIT.
>> YES, UM...AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO START TO PUT THEM DOWN.
NOW, I COULD TILT THIS.
WOULDN'T THAT LOOK NEAT?
IT WOULD LOOK LIKE YOU'RE STANDING ON A--
>> I'D BE AFRAID TO DO THAT.
[LAUGHS] >> WELL, WE COULD.
BUT FOR THE F--FOR NOW, I'M GOING TO JUST PLUNK THESE
DOWN, SO TO SPEAK; THAT'S A SCIENTIFIC WORD.
>> UH-HUH, FOR QUILTING.
>> FOR QUILTING, YEAH.
FOR WHAT I DO, FOR MY ACCIDENTAL QUILTING.
AND I'M JUST GOING TO KEEP LAYERING THESE DOWN HERE.
>> DID YOU JUST COME UP WITH THIS ACCIDENTALLY? OR WHAT?
>> I DID. I TRULY DID.
I WAS TEACHING THIS TECHNIQUE FOR SEVERAL YEARS, AND THEN,
ALL OF A SUDDEN, AT THE END OF OUR CLASSES, WE'D REALIZE WE HAD
LANDSCAPES, AND WE NEVER INTENDED TO DO IT.
>> I THOUGHT THAT WAS CORDUROY.
IT LOOKS-- >> IT DOES.
>> IT GIVES IT A NICE TEXTURE LOOK, DOESN'T IT?
>> YEAH, I USUALLY DON'T DO THIS UPSIDE DOWN, BUT IT STILL WORKS.
>> IT'S WORKING PRETTY WELL-- >> IT WORKS PRETTY WELL!
AND IF I HAVE A FAVORITE FABRIC, WHICH I DO, KIND OF
THIS ONE WITH THE SEASHELLS, I SAVE THAT FOR LAST.
AND THEN, JUST TO KIND OF GIVE YOU AN IDEA,
THERE YOU HAVE YOUR SCENE.
AND THAT'S HOW LONG IT TAKES.
I MEAN, JUST THE LAYERING.
>> NOW, LET ME ASK THIS; A WHILE AGO YOU SAID THAT
IF WE WANTED TO MOVE THIS-- LET'S SAY THIS ONE
OFF OVER HERE, A WAYS, HOW DOES THAT--
HOW DO--DO YOU JUST OVERLAP-- >> AS LONG AS THE NEXT STRIP
THAT GOES DOWN COVERS THAT RAW EDGE, OKAY?
>> THAT'S AMAZING!
>> ISN'T IT COOL?
>> AND SO, THAT KIND OF GIVES YOU HOPE THAT YOU HAVEN'T MADE
A BIG MISTAKE?
>> YEAH, IT'S HARD TO SEE YOUR COMPOSITION, AND THEN,
WHEN YOU CROP IT, UM, THEN YOU SAY, "OH, I KIND OF
LIKE THAT."
BUT, OF COURSE, AS QUILTERS-- WE CHANGE OUR MIND, AND--
BUT AT ONE POINT, YOU SAY, "OKAY, I'M GOING TO PIN ALL
THOSE LAYERS TOGETHER."
SO WE'LL JUST PUT THOSE AWAY.
>> OKAY, SO, WHILE IT'S STILL LAYING FLAT ON YOUR--
>> YEAH, WHILE IT'S LAYING FLAT, AND YOU'LL NOTICE THAT,
UM, ONE PIN WILL HOLD SEVERAL LAYERS, SO WE'RE NOT DOING ONE
AT A TIME.
AND THE TEST THAT IT'S DONE WELL IS THAT YOU CAN DO THIS.
>> THAT IS JUST AMAZING.
>> SO, IT'S NOT ACCIDENTAL PINNING.
>> NO.
>> NO ACCIDENTAL PINNING.
>> THAT'S AN IMPORTANT STEP.
>> SO, NOW WE'RE READY TO TOP-STITCH, AND I--I'M NOT
GOING TO SEW, BUT WE'RE GOING TO TOP-STITCH,
UM, AN EIGHTH OF AN INCH IN FROM THE EDGE, OKAY?
>> ON EACH ONE OF THEM?
>> ON EACH ONE.
WE'RE GOING TO WORK OUR WAY UP, AND TAKE THE PINS OUT AS WE GO.
>> SO, ON THIS ONE, WE WOULD ONLY GO AS FAR AS
WHERE THIS ONE OVERLAPS IT?
>> WE WOULD JUST GO FROM HERE OVER; AND YEAH, IF THERE'S ANY
THAT DISAPPEAR, WE'LL JUST WORK OUR WAY OUT,
IN--IN MATCHING THREAD.
>> STRAIGHT STITCHING.
HOW HARD IS THAT?
>> I MEAN, IT'S NOT-- IT'S NOT HARD AT ALL.
SO NOW HOW--NOW WE HAVE IT TOP-STITCHED.
AND YOU CAN SEE I MOVED STRIPS.
>> [LAUGHS] OH, AND THIS ONE--
THAT'S JUST SO BEAUTIFUL, HOW--I MEAN, YOU CAN TELL THAT'S
SKY, AND WATER, AND DIRT.
>> YEAH, YOU GOT THE BASICS.
AND NOW, UM, YOU TRIM WHATEVER YOUR SHORTEST RAW EDGE IS,
AND THEN, WHATEVER IS IN THE BACK THAT YOU CAN FIT YOUR
FINGERS UNDERNEATH, THAT NEEDS TO BE TRIMMED.
THE REST CAN STAY.
>> OH, JUST TO ELIMINATE BULK.
>> YEAH, BECAUSE WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO QUILT IT.
>> OH, OKAY.
>> AND THEN, SO HERE WE HAVE ONE THAT'S ALREADY TRIMMED.
AND--SO, I KIND OF CALL THIS THE BLANK CANVAS,
BECAUSE IT'S PRETTY, AND WONDERFUL, BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE
A FOCAL POINT.
NOTHING THAT SAYS, "COME TO MY BEACH AND STAY A WHILE."
>> [LAUGHS] >> AND THAT'S WHAT WE DO BY
ADDING, UM, A LITTLE DUNE FENCE LIKE THAT, OR A SAILBOAT.
AND THE DUNE FENCES-- >> AND--AND I NOTICED THIS.
>> OH, YEAH, I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU SOME OF THAT, TOO.
THAT'S A LITTLE, UH, YARN.
THAT'S A YARN.
>> OKAY, MM-HMM.
>> SO, A DUNE FENCE IS...
WE'RE JUST GOING TO CUT A COUPLE STRIPS WITH OUR ROTARY CUTTER--
>> YOU WOULDN'T HAVE EVEN THOUGHT YOU COULD SEW ON THEM--
>> YEAH! I CUT A COUPLE MORE OF THOSE, UM, JUST TO GET
THE IDEA, AND THEN WE WOULD PLACE THEM--
>> WHEREVER YOU WANT.
>> WHEREVER I WANT, AND THE FUN THING WITH THE DUNE
FENCE; AREN'T THEY ALWAYS FALLING DOWN?
>> YEAH.
>> YEAH, I MEAN, SO YOU DO THAT.
>> AND SOME WIDER THAN OTHERS-- >> YEAH, YEAH.
>> THEY WEATHERED THE STORMS.
>> AND THE SAILBOAT JUST BECOMES--BECAUSE THESE ARE
TINY, IS JUST A LITTLE TRIANGLE OF WHITE,
PUT THERE IN THE DISTANCE.
>> OH, I HADN'T EVEN NOTICED THAT. MY GOODNESS.
>> THEY'RE JUST THERE IN THE DISTANCE.
AND THEY'RE HELD DOWN WITH A LITTLE, UM...GLUE BASE--
>> SO THAT YOU-- >> YOU JUST KIND OF PUT THAT
IN THERE AND HOLD IT IN PLACE UNTIL YOU GLUE IT.
>> AND WOULD YOU DO THE SAME THING WITH THE LITTLE FENCE
PIECES?
>> YES. WHAT'S NICE WITH THAT IS YOU CAN JUST SLIDE THAT
THERE, AND YOU CAN GLUE IT IN PLACE, AND THEN YOU CAN SEE
THAT IT'S TOP-STITCHED.
>> YES.
>> AND WHAT'S FUN FOR THOSE THAT, PERHAPS, YOU'RE NOT
A QUILTER, UM...AT THIS POINT,
YOU COULD TAKE YOUR PIECE-- >> JUST FRAME IT.
>> AND FRAME IT. I MEAN, I JUST HAVE THE MAT HERE, UM...
AND THEN ADD YOUR FRAME TO THAT.
>> AND LIKE, EARLIER, WE CAN TALK ABOUT--
>> YES.
>> JUST CHANGING THE MAT GIVES THE--THE PICTURE--
>> DOESN'T IT? YEAH.
>> A TOTALLY DIFFERENT LOOK.
>> REALLY CHANGES IT.
>> THAT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL.
>> AND YOU NOTICED THE FUZZY YARN.
I MEAN, THAT'S AN ADDITION.
WE CAN ADD THAT; THAT'S SOME OF THAT--
>> AND IS THAT STITCHED ON?
>> THAT IS ALSO STITCHED ON THERE. MM-HMM.
>> SO, EVERY LITTLE SCRAP YOU HAVE IN A DRAWER CAN BE USED
FOR SOMETHING.
I LIKE THAT.
>> YEAH, YEAH.
SO, REALLY, THAT'S DONE IN THREE HOURS.
AND THEN, UM...IF WE WANT TO ADD BATTING,
WE CAN ADD BATTING AND BORDERS, AND HERE WE CAN HAVE FUN WITH
YARNS...
>> OH, AND THE BEADS.
>> BUGLE BEADS TO MAKE A STARFISH AND ALL.
>> OH! I DON'T THINK YOU CAN SEE THE BEAUTY OF ALL THAT.
>> PROBABLY NOT.
>> THAT'S--THAT'S SO PRETTY.
>> SO, THAT'S THE BASIC CONCEPT.
>> MM-HMM.
>> AND THE FUN THING IS, JUST BY CHANGING COLORS,
I MEAN, MOST OF US THINK THAT A BEACH IS, YOU KNOW, CERTAIN
COLORS, BUT BECAUSE YOUR EYE, WHENEVER IT SEES HORIZONTAL
LINES, IT SAYS, "OH, THAT'S A LANDSCAPE!"
IF I DO IT IN YELLOWS, IT'S FINE.
I THINK YOU CAN STILL TELL.
AND--AND BECAUSE THESE ARE SMALL SCENES, OUR DETAILS ARE
SIMPLE. SO, AN UMBRELLA IS A HALF A CIRCLE;
BEACH CHAIRS ARE SQUARES; AND WE JUST HAVE SOME BEACH
GRASS THERE, TOO.
>> THAT'S AMAZING.
>> YEAH!
HERE'S ANOTHER ADAPTATION-- I CALL THIS MY ACCIDENTAL--
ACCIDENTAL LANDSCAPE, BECAUSE WHEN I'M MAKING THESE
SCENES, I HAVE A WHOLE BUNCH OF STRIPS.
AND WELL, SHOULD I THROW THEM AWAY?
NO, I CAN'T THROW THEM AWAY, SO, I PUT THEM TOGETHER AND
I GET ANOTHER LITTLE SCENE.
AND YOU CAN ADD A LITTLE, YOU KNOW, A LITTLE LIGHTHOUSE
WITH FABRIC.
>> BEAUTIFUL.
>> AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THERE'S ONE OTHER ONE THERE.
WE'RE GOING TO ADD SOME PHOTO TRANSFERS.
THIS IS MY DAUGHTER 28 YEARS AGO.
SHE NOW HAS CHILDREN THAT AGE.
>> THIS IS AN ACTUAL PICTURE.
A PHOTO TRANSFER-- WE'VE--WE'VE SH--SHOWED
THAT BEFORE, BUT WHAT A GREAT WAY TO MAKE THIS SO PERSONAL.
>> IT'S A MEMORY.
AND THOSE ARE B--UH, SHELLS THAT WE ACTUALLY
COLLECTED ON THAT BEACH, YOU KNOW, THAT PARTICULAR--
>> UH-HUH.
>> DAY IN VIRGIN GORDA.
SO THAT PERSONALIZES, AND I JUST--I'M JUST USING
EXACTLY WHAT I'VE-- >> AND, AGAIN, JUST SCRAPS.
>> JUST YEAH, JUST STRIPS.
AND HERE IS--UM...
IT LOOKS VERY DIFFERENT, BUT HERE WE'VE MORE SKY,
AND WE'VE PUT OUR-- STRIPS REAL CLOSE TOGETHER.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND WE'VE ADDED SEA OATS, AND JUST CHANGED THE SCENE AND
THE TIME OF THE DAY.
>> AND ADDED A LITTLE BIRD UP THERE. HOW PERFECT.
WELL, KAREN, THIS IS JUST WONDERFUL. YOU'RE SO TALENTED.
>> [LAUGHS] I'M JUST HAVING FUN PLAYING!
>> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHOWING US HOW TO DO THIS.
>> MY PLEASURE.
>> I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW TODAY.
NEXT TIME ON "CREATIVE LIVING," WE'LL LEARN HOW TO DRESS TO
LOOK TEN POUNDS THINNER; WE'LL DEMONSTRATE MAKING
A DELICIOUS TOFFEE, AND TALK ABOUT FITTING AND
DESIGNING KNITS.
MOST WOMEN ARE LOOKING FOR WAYS TO LOOK TEN POUNDS THINNER,
AND ONE OF MY NEXT GUESTS IS A WARDROBE CONSULTANT AND
AUTHOR, AND SHE'S GOING TO DEMONSTRATE ON HERSELF HOW TO
MAKE CHANGES THAT WILL RESULT IN A SLIMMER AND MORE FLATTERING
LOOK.
TWO OTHER GUESTS ARE COOKBOOK AUTHORS, AND THEY'RE GOING TO
DEMONSTRATE MAKING A DELICIOUS SEASIDE TOFFEE.
EACH RECIPE IN THEIR COOKBOOK TELLS A WONDERFUL STORY ABOUT
THE RECIPE, AND MY GUESTS WILL SHARE THIS
STORY AS THEY PREPARE THE TOFFEE.
THESE LADIES ARE REFERRED TO AS "THE SUGAR MAMAS," AND THEIR
COOKBOOK IS "SUGAR, SUGAR: EVERY RECIPE HAS A STORY."
AND FINALLY, WE'LL TALK TO A PATTERN DESIGNER ABOUT HOW TO
FIT AND DESIGN KNIT GARMENTS.
SHE'LL ALSO SHOW SKETCHES OF KNIT DESIGNS THAT ILLUSTRATE
THE VARIOUS KNIT FABRICS AND STRETCH ELEMENTS IN EACH ONE.
ALL OF THESE TOPICS WILL BE FEATURED ON THE NEXT
"CREATIVE LIVING" SHOW.
