New Beginnings =)

It feels so good to finally have some free time to myself to experiment, play...create!!

paper napkin treated with a glossy gel medium then adhered to cotton batting and stiched after it dried.

 ...not sure what I'm going to do with this...looks so much like leather to me that I kinda want to make a clutch...but might just continue on as an autumn theme art quilt; I'll embellish and bind and hang it!! Time will tell =)
11 x 14 canvas panel, collaged with vintage newspaper and dress patterns, several layers of acrylic wash applied, then acrylic outline of paisley and other free form designs added

18 x 24 original watercolor: Across The Field

18 x 24 original watercolor Poppy Floral

 Above is an art quilt I made in the spring using scraps and recycled items.

Jeanine's Birthday Flowers from friend, Dana watercolor subject! My neighbor received a lovely bouquet of flowers from a friend for her birthday last week. I took more than a dozen photo's in a variety of settings and view and am excited to begin sketches...when I have time!!! See you soon!
