Another Floral Beauty

I think this may be the last one for a while, a combination of transfer and collage of the same flower image (background and foreground).

Three more floral beauties...

...I'd say I'm on a roll with these. I actually want to create 12 of them, so I've one more to go on that goal. Don't have much to say otherwise, except "is Spring EVER going to come?

David says this one is "scarey," I like that. :)

I feel like I need to embellish this with something, if not just a thin border...I don't know...

What did I say about rick-rack? :)

I was at the Goodwill last week and saw a bunch of rick-rack bundled and selling for $1.99 a bunch -- I grabbed three bunches! I love the stuff, can't have enough of it on hand. I am so weird, I'd probably never wear anything with rick-rack on it....

Somerset Studio, More Floral Beauties

I found out last week that I will have two pieces in the next Somerset Studio! (The Blue Issue.) That's amazing to me -- I only started doing this work about four and a half years ago.

I've done more floral beauties, here they are:

I haven't named these yet -- this one was difficult, I kept re-sizing and cutting out the floral decorations (from an image of vintage wallpaper).

This one I had a lot of fun with -- first there was the background, which was a transfer of an image of watercolored roses, which I intentionally distressed. Then there was more vintage trim, and then I cut loose with the sewing machine, and stitched around the inside perimeter about four times, I think it looks like of hazy.

And finally, rick-rack makes me happy.
