Finding Courage

This painting was just not "doing" it ....many parts were wonderful but I decided it was time to divide and conquer....or at least free up some energy.

The bottom half, the tulip with the teapot silhouette is now a collage of magazine images (the beautiful cup and ceramic birds are from Tracy Porter's catalog).......

Then the collage was given a sticker (above the cup) of a sparkly nature, some cotton quilt batting and backing fabric were chosen. It was free-motion quilted with varigated thread..... Voila!

It is trasformed into a paper collage quilt....soon to be for sale on ETSY!

Altered book page and Early morning wet hair sketch

My altered book, "The daughter of time", this page is called "I am powerful and protected". I used fabric scraps and magazine clippings as well as clip art.

The words of the book's text left showing are "...eyes glowing with pleasure".."alive and well and prosperous" and "fun and games". It always amazes me what can be found in the words on the page!


Week 2 of my "self-portrait every week".....done just now with towel-dried hair and no contact lenses in yet....now to get some collage "work" (play) done for the day...will post it here later. ("Later": that's it above!)
