Fruit Cups

The title for this art bra is Fruit Cups.  giggles!  I am creating this for the auction in support of HopeSpring Cancer Support Center that I have organized for November.  The inaugural event last year was really well received.  So many artists told me they wanted to participate if we did it again.  So, of course, we have to do it again!  There still a lot to do on this bra but it has a really good start so far!
If anyone would like to contribute an art bra please contact me through this blog.  We would love to have more!

Work in Progress Wednesday

I am amazed that I found time to work on this piece in the last week.  Getting ready for quilt festival has been busy!  I hate going backwards but I learned with this piece that sometimes you really have to do it.  There was a ton of french knots I had to remove.  The color of embroidery thread I used wasn't right.  So that has been corrected and I am happier with it now.  I also added some stitching and ribbon to lower portion.

Art Journal prompt

The prompt was to do a page inspired by a movie.  I chose my favorite scene from The Lord of the Rings.  Eowyn says 'I am no man" and then slays the beast.  I love how powerful she was because she was a woman.  I love being a woman and exploring the power and influence I have because of that.  I have the power to create a peaceful home.  My body can create another human being.   Women are pretty amazing.  My background is pretty busy.  Can't say I care for it all that much.  However, I am using a journal that I had put together a while ago so it will have to do.

I heart Macro

I am the guest at Today's Flowers blog this week!  It is so cool to link up and be a part of what others are doing!  Now that the good weather is upon us I am excited to get outside with my camera.  Well, at least when this week is done.  Quilt festival is always a busy week for me.  Not a whole lot of creating of any sort happens during this week.

Not your typical crazy quilt

This is still very much in progress.  My idea was to do more of a collage style crazy quilt.  I went through a stage not liking it so much.  I am liking it more but I still have some doubts.  The lace and ribbon stitching I have added is pleasing to me.  I will definitely be adding some more ribbon stitching.  I am not sure I will get this done by the end of the month.  The next week and a half is quite busy.  Mostly fun things so that is good!

Journal page

I am using a journal I made from leftovers and scraps.  The background can be a bit busy because of that.  This page I wanted to obliterate some of the background so I painted over it with pink.  The prompt was to use a crown.  I decided to do a page about my blog name.  It just seemed appropriate.  Not exactly great art but I am having a lot of fun with it.

Work in Progress Wednesday


My bead journal for May is complete.  I am quite pleased with it.  Using some paper in it feels good to me.  I made a color copy of it and used that in my paper journal.  I love two for one!  The journal prompt was to use my name.
