Look what I made!

I made this huge piece for Xyron. They wanted a mixed media piece for display when they go to quilt shows. Hopefully, it will show a bit of what the Xyron Creatopia can do.
It's 24" x 30" and sits in a black framed shadowbox. It's really gorgeous.

Here's what I did:
I printed the photo of my mother-in-law onto fabric treated with Bubble Jet Set 2000.
I created fabric paper (a la Beryl Taylor and Kelli Perkins) for the flowers and hearts.
Music paper was cut using the Xyron Creatopia CUTZ blades.
Thin craft metal was embossed using the Xyron Creatopia Patternz.
Thin craft metal was also cut using the CUTZ blades.
I used Fabric Adhesive and Permanent Adhesive refillz for the Creatopia.
Then there's machine stitching, beading, wire work and flowing fabric.
