Mish mash? Pish tosh!

Are you ready for the big reveal? A little sneak peek before the jump: the vegetable matter and a hint of the glorious colour to come.

You're soaking in it...

My little cocoon sits silently in a warm spot near the garage.  I don't know if I can wait much longer!

Little coccoon

Welcome to my backwards post!

Although I have not yet purchased India Flint's book Eco Colour (nor have I purchased her follow-up - Second Skin); I did attend a talk by her last year, and from what I remember, it seemed the process was as follows: grab some plants, roll 'em up tight in cotton, silk, wool or other natural fibers, cook 'em, and let them hang around for awhile. Open them up and be amazed and astounded by their beauty!

More flowers....

So, given the new plan for the piece, I had to make more flowers.  I didn't know whether I needed three or four in total for the whole piece, so I ended up making three more.

I haven't forgotten about you and I haven't disappeared - I simply haven't got anything to post.

And... we're off

Because I can't seem to concentrate on one thing at a time lately, I went back to work on that flower:

I was bored with it as I quilted it on that cream background, so decided to overlay it with four different 6.5 inch wide stips of coloured tulle.

What's up, buttercup?

So you may remember this supposedly finished piece that I called "June".

This weekend, I was working on that other piece I showed you last week, and this one literally fell on my head (off of a shelf where it had been precariously balanced).

What do you do with a drunken sailor?

or something... (heh)

So, the last 7 or 8 days the artistic side of my brain has been on speed or something, because I've had a slew of ideas for new art work - mostly wall, but bed as well; but I've been too busy to actually do anything about those ideas besides write them down.

We Are Mermaids Too

I finished it! But before I got there, I had a bit of a problem.
